In the 70 Honda CX500 is not particularly popular by the print media, as well as early CB550 Four who looked quite ridiculous against the background of a reduced version of the CB750. At that time, Honda had not the best years behind its Japanese competitors position. In order to give us something to answer to its competitors Honda CX500 equipped engine V-twin water-cooled and beskamerkami, in principle, quite a revolutionary concept in the late '70s. But the awkward, angular styling did not comply with inspired design. The current owner kastomov CX500 Max that lives in France, has decided to correct this is not wealth and used the services of the guys in the studio Wrenchmonkees .
As the FDI from Wrenchmonkees Max rode on his Honda CX500 from France to Copenhagen and the bike at first glance looked very or anything. But after it was dismantled guys started, manifested the first "kosyachki" frame rusted in some places to such an extent that it was necessary to impose the metal plates. As for the engine, he whispered as new in the studio just replaced the gasket under the valve cover and produced cosmetic cleaning.
We did not have much Wrenchmonkees plan to assemble the bike, but after the first assembly steps, such as installing the wheels, fuel tank and shortening the frame, the prerequisites to creating sort of "chopper-racer." Fixed fuel bar, a later attempt to soften the lines of the original Honda Honda CX500 . Then guys shortened frame, made a new exhaust system and wings. Battery box has been moved down and now remade has a single seat attracts the eye. Headlight and speedometer were set to Mini. And in kontsove it was all painted in brown paint. As a result of this custom was introduced by Wrenchmonkees on Danish Forever Two Wheels custom show, where the bike has received honors in the category Open class. And I bet that Max returned to France for his new custom bikes Honda CX500 very happy man.
