I have a fully customized 1978 Cx500 bratstyle motorcycle. It only has a little more than 2200 miles on it since the build. Hate to sell it (because not only is it awesome city bike. but I get people taking pictures of it and asking me questions about it when ever I park it outside somewhere) but it's time to start another project. Here are the stats: -fiberglass headlight bucket with integrated speedo made by Carpy in Orange. A. -new extra long fork ears. -custom chopped front fender -rebuilt front and rear brakes -new throttle cable. speedo cable and brake lines -new progressive fork springs. new fork seals. rebuilt fork. and powder coated lower forks. -powder coated wheels. with new Dunlop tire (2000 miles) -clipon handlebars. new grips. and bar end mirrors. -nos ignition coils. -ignitech cdi computer system -8 cell ballistic evo2 lithium battery -new custom wiring harness. -powder coated valve covers -new bullet turnsignal a front and back. -custom rear turn signal mounts -custom made brake light and license plate mount. -Mac 2into1 exhaust header. attached to an emgo reverse cone muffler. -rebuilt. and re-jetted carbs. with new cone filters. -side covers. air box/battery tray removed. -polished original rear springs -rear hoop. battery/electrics tray welded onto frame. as well as side walls to flatten the frame out. -custom flat bratstyle seat pan and leather upholstery -powder coated frame. swing arm. kickstand and center stand. -gas tank sealed. with new petcock and filter. -tank and headlight bucket painted "porsche" silver -new oil temperature dipstick -choke cable relocation -rebuilt final drive on driveshaft -cleaned and flushed radiator. will include extras: -a very hard to find cam chain tensioner that are not made any longer and your pretty much screwed if yours breaks. $50-100 value. -a full gasket set. Will not need for a very long time. but nice to have one on hand. $60-75 -black exhaust wrap. $25 The only flaws with the bike are some light rust on a couple of parts that weren't replaced in the build (driver pegs. and on the front of the ignition). as well as slight wear on the leather seat on the front edge(only problem with a square brat seat). also some gas dropped on the left side valve cover and removed a layer of powder coat in a couple spots. and it also has an issue with cold starts( probably because of the rejetted carbs). I'm not going to lie and say that it starts first try every time. because it doesn't. it will take a few tries if the bike has been sitting for a while. but alas despite how it looks it's still a 37 year old vintage bike. The last photo is of the original cluster to show the original mileage before the build. I also have photos taken during the build if you would like to see those as well. I am asking $9500 as I have quite a bit more than that into the build. but I will entertain reasonable offers. I am not in a hurry to sell. so please no low ball offers. Shipping: I will not ship the bike. If you would like to come pick it up from me. and then ship it some where that is fine.
