Ya, I'm a bit of a cafe/tracker nut... pretty much spent most my adult life on motorcycles, and the last two years building one.

I'm on my way to getting another built...this time a board tracker (But am limited with space right now). Hence my joining this forum and starting to build my first bike here... in my basement no less!

The Red Honda is indeed a CX500... I have a buddy that has one he wants me to help build into a cafe, and I almost pulled the trigger on one for myself a few months back to build into something like that Red one... They're great reliable bikes (shaft drive)...but not as plentiful (parts-wise) as other models are...and to do it right means to do a lot of fab work...which I'm not apposed, but lack the space, currently.
