After 35-years old CX500 gets a second life thanks to the abundant attention from customizer. At this time, a variant of its revival is represented by the already familiar to us from the customizer custom-shop Kingston Customs. Let me remind you that their previous work was bobber BMW R75 / 6 . As for the motorcycle Honda CX500, in Kingston we have created one of the cleanest and most tastefully modified café racers on the basis of the CX500 has ever produced.
After the donor CX500 hit the studio Kingston Customs, the first thing that made Dirk Oehlerking is completely disassembled it. During assembly, virtually every detail of passes through the hands of Dirk, he either restores or modifies or changes on the part of its own production.
In the process of construction of a cafe racer Dirk painted engine thermal paint, wrapped Thermoband collector and replace the drain pair of silencers on the converted Harleevskie. Next it was made: a tiny fairing, seat, battery box, wings, foot brake. Side steps were taken with a Yamaha XT600, set Spiegler brake hoses, klipony Fehling and Bates Headlight.
Rubber Avon 5.00-16 and 4.00-19 rear front, shod on stock Comstar wheels, which were painted in the same color with the frame, tank, fenders and matched to the color of grips. The instrument panel has been minimized, there was only one speedometer and ignition switch Replace the spark plug.
