Motorcycle Restoriation Project

October 09, 2017

My husband works in an office by day, but in his free time he is a motorcycle mechanic. In the past few years he has fixed up his dirt bikes and maintained our vehicles. Two years ago he purchased a Honda CX500 that had sat outside in a yard for 25 years. It was rusted, faded, didn't run, and resembled a hunk of scrap metal.

Two years and lots of research, time, blood, burns, and tears, and the bike has returned to its glory. My husband transformed it into a cafe racer and this week took it on its inaugural ride. We took some photos of the bike. Please note, he usually rides with protective gear, and is not a squid. Gear up!
