This bike has been published at Pipeburn, Bikeexif, The Bullitt and was selected (1 of 100 bikes chosen) to appear at The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show (2018) in Austin, TX April 20 – 22 I'm confident this is one of the best custom cx500's you'll ever see or have a chance to own. Every aspect of this bike has been enhanced and it results in an exceptionally nimble and enjoyable bike to ride.http://www.pipeburn.com/home/2018/01/18/honda-cx500-racer-iowa.htmlhttp://www.bikeexif.com/custom-bikes-week-104http://thebullitt.com/2018/03/honda-cx500-street-tracker-by-chris-kent.html COMPLETELY New Motor Build (with less than 2,000 miles – yes, this is a rider!)
