Where the bike from?

Feb 2012, after some calls to a guy in Westminster California, I have decided to take his 1983 Honda CX650 back to Vietnam for a Café project.
I gotta do that because there are very few of Honda CX here. I have heard about some GL400, I have seen only two CX400 by my eyes and never seen a single CX650.

This photo was taken by the seller in Feb 2012:


Due to some unforeseen reasons, the bike was delivered to me in Ho Chi Minh City in July 2012. Damn slow US boat .
First met the bike, let's take a round view:









10xxx miles on the clock:


I have ridden the bike for about 5km and feel really great. After some months but just two three time press the Ignition button, it starts.
Really smooth and powerful bike. Much better than what I though.

During the waiting time to the boat to arrive, I have also bought a set of front forks from a US friend in Maryland:


Right, by air is faster by boat! The upside down front forks arrive much earlier than the bike.

I have also been walking around the forums to find the ideas for my project.
Found this thread in ADV with lots of very good advices from Sparkymoto. Thank you very much Sparkymoto, now I can start with the monoshock.

I have put up the bike and my ideas to see how the thing would look like afterward:



Options and options.... create... edit.... delete... create....
