I don't know how this was done, the swing arm has a pro link sticker on it but I still don't see a shock. Was it welded into a rigid? Sticker there to confuse us? I took this pic in Duluth, MN at the Very Boring Rally.

No, that's the rubber of the drive shaft. It's a GL500 (almost the same as a cx500). I'm pretty sure the shock is under the fornt of the swing arm, out of view on this picture.

I appreciate all types and levels of Cafe racers.

But my word, this is very close to ugly. !

Only on the GL, the CX is thas the normal dual shock set up.


And I must apologize, I was wrong about where the shock is placed on the GL. They're very rare over here, never actually seen one in real life.

That must have been different in the states than. I've never heard of a pro link CX over here (Holland). But I might have that wrong as well ;)
