If you don't already know, a CX500 is the same bike without the fairing and trunk (well, practically), so the CX500 users' groups are a good resource.

In the meantime, here's a taste:


And you might want to change your signature since both are watercooled . . . .

Are you sellin' the 'jammer fairing? . . . or the rear box?


They are great bikes . . .

I dont got the bike yet but according to the guy I'll have a set for both the bikes, one set along with one frontend is going on a trike.By the way, thats just a pic of what the bike looks like, not the actual bike.

So why do the shocks on the rear look different?Is this a CX500?
Did they just modify a rear fender, get a diff seat and run shocks from a cx500?

Those look like the shocks on my CX500C (the "C" is for Custom, but it's a model name, not a description); the CX500A (standard) had a maggot-shaped fuel tank and silver Comstars. The stock seat on all CX500C's is pillion, and the stock front wheel is a black Comstar like the GL500 uses.

But that's not my point - to go from stock to bobber you primarily REMOVE things. Chop the rear fender, delete the crash bars, forego mirrors and turn signals (usually illegally), etc.

I've been toying for a couple of years with converting my CX to a trike (with either a Datsun or Capri II rear axle) - if you are interested, I can point you to my thoughts on that off list.

You SAID you wanted a GL500-based bobber . . . . Whatever that glow-in-the-dark thing is, it ain't no bobber!

THIS is a bobber:

Hmm... I think it's about time for another motorcycle post.

I recently put together a video my "Ugly Duc" project. The bike isn't completley finished yet, but then there's more I'd like to do with the video too, so there ya go.

The Ugly Duc:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Os2XqSnpyw


It's definitely off topic for this site so in addition to that link, I'll post up a pic of one of my latest bike projects that may be a little more on theme here... at least it's going to be a hardtail...

The hardtail (a VERY early mock up):

My sooter. Over 150,000 miles and will still pull the front wheel up if I twist it too hard. My wife doesn't ride any more, so this thread has me wanting to build a Bobber.

Holy shit!! Is there a motorcycle in there somewhere?

Just screwing with ya, man. I've always thought a fully-dressed bike defeats the whole purpose of having one to start with. Of course, I've never tried taking one on a long trip either.

My wife and I used to tour a lot. Sure I have seen a bunch of couples on Harleys (or the like) but MW said Hell No! She liked the comfort, the intercom, the drink holder, storage, etc.

I didn't feel like rolling it out into the driveway to snap it. Just call me lazy. - CB

The Silverwing has a air mono shock, and a longer wheelbase.
The CX500 has twin coilovers.
