    IMG_3346.JPG This is a project I've wanted to do for a long time now. But I've kinda gotten stalled out for a couple months. It's harder to carve out time to work on it then I thought. I'm hoping when spring weather gets here it will give me a jump start to get back at it. I can see in my head where I want this build to end up, it's just getting there. So what do you guys think?

    Going by the other CX' builds here, it needs more holes. Apart from that, it's looking good. Love the pipes.

    Thanks! The pipes are a combination of stock headers and Harley Sportster mufflers that I picked up for $30 at a swap meet. I'm not sure what you mean by more holes. Being able to see "through" the bike more?

    I picked up a '79 CX500 Scrambler build that a guy had started and lost interest in.
    Hope to work on it over the long winters we have here in VT.
