1983 Honda CX650 Custom – My new projectPosted: March 31, 2009
Okay, it’s about time. The leader of The Upright Motorcycle Brigade (yours truly) finally has a motorcycle! The years of the scooter are drawing to a close.
I found it on Craigslist right in Johnson City, NY about 2 miles from where I work. It is in rough shape; won’t start, forks slightly bent, seat ripped, parts missing, etc. Just the way I like ‘em! Now I can tear it apart and set it right. I enjoy wrenching just as much as riding.
Here are some pics:
First order of business is to pull the engine and replace the starter clutch. Then reassemble and get it to pass New York state inspection.
I’ll keep you updated!
Remember, keep ‘em upright!
