I am thinking of some Arabic luxury cars which are all chromed.
I used to own a CX500, much derided in it's day but like by the motorcycle courier people. I thought it was excellent and one of the most comfortable dual seats ever. Were many sold in the US? I don't recall every seeing one during my trips there in 2002 and 2006.
If anyone was curious photographs of the finished bike may be seen here on the artists webpage : http://www.nemogould.com/
BUMP for an awesome build
I have a soft spot for CXs...
I had an '82 GL500 from '88-'93. It had over 50,000 miles on it when I bought it, and I put 30,000 more on it. Only mechanical problem it ever had was a bad oil seal on the fan shaft, which I finally fixed about a year before selling it. I think the guy who bought it rode it for at least another 10 years. I think Honda hit an out of the park home run with that engine. I don't know why it wasn't more successful than it was.
it's an odd ball that's hard to find parts for now. the 650 is even worse.... most orphaned bike I've ever worked on. I kinda like em though. And the Cachet is very well done.... nice work
There are a few still on the road getting regular use. I see about one a year out here, they seemed more common when I lived in Milwaukee Wisconsin but motorcycling is much more common in general out there. It seems like a rich person's hobby in Massachusetts where all walks rode bikes in the mid west. There were many more older, but good running if ugly bikes still on the road out there.
I took a pretty substantial break from forums and such. Nemo's CX500 is finish and you can see pictures of it here:
NIce looking. Love the aluminum work.
Non conformer, I like it
Great work on the bike!
A little late, but you can find 1100 sheet at Gorilla Metals in Hayward, bought a full sheet of .063 there last month. I found 1100 1/16" filler rod at East Bay Welding supply.
I use Oxy/Ac for my Alu sheet projects, if your not worried about exact color match try 4043 tig rod- flows better but comes out darker.
I use 1100 filler on both 3003 and 1100 sheet, the color comes out the same to my naked eyes after polishing..
