Model: CX 500 E
Bijzonderheden: "I bought a cx500ec with 52,000 km in 1986 when i decided to do despatch riding - it was quite a respectable bike then with a Rickman fairing and topbox.
After two or three years i had put on another 160,000 km, then got a "proper" job.
During the next few years it was used as a normal bike and during this time the transformation began;i chopped the frame off and put on a single seat,the home-made exhaust was fabricated,different `bars,"solid" rear wheel and all graphics taped over.
In about 1996 the bike was feeling and looking very tired so i put it into retirement with 230,000 km on the clock....
In 2004 the CX re-birth began,but the engine was burning a lot of oil and when i tried to knock out the swingarm bearing the frame collapsed with severe rust.
I bought what was left of a 650ed after a bike dealer had broke it for spares from ebay(frame/engine/rear wheel),and used parts from my original 500 and the 650 to make one bike from the two,the new bike taking on the look of what the 500 had morphed into!
I had to use a 500 camshaft and carbs in the 650 at first,although now i have put 650 carbs on.
Since then it has gained more "improvements" including a handlebar fairing,Fireblade exhaust can,etc.
I have more ideas for the future - it keeps evolving.....
New (june 2007)
Exhaust can from a Peugeot car,500 ec engine in a 650 chassis,home made rear frame and downpipes - a bike made from whatever is to hand.....
