WOW

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I love heavily-modified customs, but it's bikes like this that made me try to keep the stock looks as much as possible in a few key areas.

Beautifully done - now go have fun getting it a bit dirty. :D

Your bike looks fantastic, Paul.
No doubt you know the front sprocket cover bolts and washer should be black.
I have a spare set that i can send you.

Steve,

Yes - I had them re-plated silver by mistake. Have already got some replacements on the way, but thanks!

It's another '79 Z model, so will have a matching pair of silver and red. Condition is OK - "cosmetically challenged", but largely complete / original.

Started stripping it down this week, and intend to restore it over the next 2-3 months. Will probably start new project thread at some point.

Paul.

When I saw the red bike, I thought "that looks pretty nice!"

Then I went back and looked at the final pics of the silver bike again, and now the red bike looks like it needs a ton of TLC.

Luckily we know it's in very capable hands. :-)

I wonder how many of us have said the same thing...."i couldn't resist it, bought myself another CBX".
It is NOT an addiction, it is a hobby.

:roll: nah it's an addiction, a sane person would choose a Vespa or Honda Cub as a hobby.
CBX a work in progress, still improving...GS1150EFE completed and awaiting modifications.....RD350, remnants in boxes scattered throughout the garage
