For sale is my newly finished Honda cx500 custom (US import in 1992) chop. This began life as a standard cx500 custom. As you can see it has under gone extensive work. The major stuff being the frame. ake and tank designer rust. Started by my uncle who has undergone notable work with Harleys and finished by Mike Woods of Full metal ornament. This was originally bought by my uncle for his wife to ride on days out with the boys on their Harley chops. The idea behind the CX chop was that it would be small and manageable for her to ride but without compromising too much on a radical look. Having finished it off and MOT'd it i can report that it rides fantastically. Despite the rake. the trail was regained through some clever yokes so it really does handle fantastically. So long as it was always dry. you could almost ride this as a daily its that comfortable.  Mechanically this bike is sound having been a low mileage example. Everything works as you'd expect except the choke can be a bit fiddly to get too. Just fitted new clutch plates as the old ones were on their way out. Tire treads are good and brakes work fine. The exhaust note passes for not too loud. Small tank capacity as its been cut and sunk into the frame.  I threw in a pic of me on it to give an idea of scale. i'm 5ft 10in. So you can really see how low and small the bike is. Naturally this suits some one of my height more favorably. All in all a really nice. radical looking chop without too much of the downside of your average low rider. Any questions dont hesitate to call Grant on 07766 153 720. The bike is located in Headington. Oxford. Cash on collection. Thanks for looking and good luck.
