This is my 1978 honda CX Bratstyle Cafe Racer. i brought it last year as a barn find. it had just over 16000 miles on the clock which for a cx is nothing at all. ive done roughly 2000 miles on it this summer while ive been doing it up.  the rear seat loop has been re-fabricated and a custom seat pan and cover to made to fit. i resprayed the frame and rat styled the tank to give it a used look. the wheels have been plasti-dipped black and the ignition switch moved under the tank on a three way ignition so that you start the bike from the key. like a car.  i just taxed it for 6 months and it has MOT for about the same. Its by no means a show bike. ive been using it as my daily for most the summer so it has some rusty bolts and a few scratches here and there. a good usable cafe racer. The carbs need tuning and the water pump seal needs replacing. i no longer have the space to keep the bike inside/to work on the bike so it has to go. £1600 ono
