CX500 Weekly Update

Moving on to less major work. Switches, sensors, wiring, kickstands. Getting started on fixing mechanical issues. Cracked carburetor vent tubes, leaking gaskets, and the endless surprises found when u buy a 35 year old motorcycle.

CX500 - Weekly Update

Moved on to the seat this week. I always wanted to try making a fiberglass seat pan, to compare the time and effort spent against the metal version. So with a little cardboard and some smellyness, I pulled it off. I machined up some billet spacers and made some mounts so that the pan could be rubber mounted. So far so good.

So still building in the recycling my old stuff mode, I built a tail section from an old fender, some rod I can't remember the source of,and some sheet metal that I used to use for a mini wlding table. I also came up with a mount for the tag, peace style.
