Default Going from "old school" to "extra badass"

after I saw the pic of a cafe cx500 I knew I wanted to dump the cb400 and pick up a cx500. I sold the cb yesterday and picked up this cx today. I'm not sure if I even have enough street cred to be rocken this badboy but I'm doing it. I can tell you one thing, Prince don't have shit on me!!









I'm going to enjoy the cheesyness for alittle while then build something like this

Nice.. Better than the last one. You should be able to make some money back selling off the panniers and that big 'ol front fairing crap.

First off, Hancho is too lame to actually ride any bike. He just buys them and does dumb shit to them and then sells them. The Fenton Chapter motorcycle gang is a complete farce.

Second, the guy with the BMW wouldn't want to be seen with a doucher like Hancho.

i was gonna cafe my cb750, then i realized that it was just dumb so i sold it and got a crotch rocket. Coulda wasted tons of time and money on cafe parts and still had a shitty old bike. Now I have fully adjustable suspension on a 350 pound bike with 140hp and a 14,500rpm red line and fuel injection

I've had all those bikes for years...I want something old, something differant...this fits the bill perfectly. Best part about it doesn't cost a shit ton of money if you do everything yourself

I think you forgot the TJ, the viper, the previous cafe racer he still has parts in the garage for, the GW invader, the smoker he gave to green, etc.

I think he might be almost as ADD as skooterbuilt, just not nearly as douchey

okay, you guys win, come over tomorrow and you guys get three free punches to my face but I did finish the bug, raced it, broke it, sold it. GW was traded for some bobcat work. The other bike was ridden all the time, I ordered a bunch of stuff to make it cool, the vender let me down. Then I saw the cx, and I shifted gears. The dual sport...yea that one lasted about three weeks! And the bronco is still in the works...in fact I just got the first part...the winch!

I want the old windjammer fairing for my 3-wheeled bicycle, it'll look sweet on it!!
And then I'd have some tunes too.
