Well the sidecar rig is done other that me constantly braking it. I have been collecting pieces for about a year now and couldn't help but put it in a roller. you won't be getting daily up dates on this one yet as I have to finish a build for a buddy of mine.

What's the engine plan? Do you have one for it, or currently looking?

Bought a complete bike to start with so I'll start there. It has good compression but we will see. If hugh at hugh's handbuilt starts accepting engine's soon it may just go to him if not I will pull it down and do a rephase and the new 5th gear. Why got a spare motor laying around?

Well got sidetracked by a few things like getting wife being pregnant.With that a success it made me get off my ass and get all the stuff I had on the sideburner for friends. This one being the biggest.
It's a 1981 cx500 that was my best friends first bike he has had it forever and always wanted to make it "cool" but I had always thought it was just to fugly too deal with.
Well one booze fueled night at the beach last year he convinced me to take it home with me and "cafe" it for his wife. It was sitting in the corner of his garage for a year or so before I got it.
I rebuilt the forks, brakes, carbs, did all the fluids the normal stuff also
built a subframe for the Roc city tail section.
swapped the ugly comstars for less ugly comstars and polished and powder coated them. This also took it from being a 19/16 to a 19/18 wheel set for "proper cafe stance"
drilled the rotor swapped the master for a 600rr unit
Lorsa cafe bars and dime city guages
New 9" headlight and ears
Swapped the custom tank for a deluxe model one
Painted it 2013 Ford f150 copper'y brown
and powder coated a metric shit tone of stuff

Here she is in all her ugly glory before it was just missing tassels hanging off the grips


And after beating most of the ugly off of her
