Other suggestion I'd have is to ditch the Comstars, but I suspect that's a lot of work on the back. Overall, very nice job.

thanx for all the opinions guys!

It's very hard (and expensive) to ditch the comstars on a cx500 because of the driveshaft. There's a few people who've done it, but everytime it was a lot of work, expensive and involved tools I don't have.

I have not seen one with a fairing either, and I like it with it!
Looking for a cx500 for the right price myself...

Here's some nice ones from a cafe racer shop here in Australia. They take brand new bikes and create some fantastic macines from them:

They also make Push Bikes:




They are ultra expensive but one day I will own one of these fantastic machines.

You buy the motorcycle as a stock machine and then you can go as wild as you want for howerver much $$$ you have!

Every time I see a picture of that bike (and it seems to be showing up everywhere these days) I find myself thinking of a '70s era Ford LTD wagon, with the woodgrain on the side?

No clue why, it's not like the bike looks like an LTD.

But that's where my mind goes when I see it.

Yeah! It's got a stationwagon kind of feel about it, doesn't it? Not sexy at all.
