PROJECT CX: honda hover500

Yet another crappy cell-phone pic of Project CX. ...I really need to get a big boy camera.

The wheels come back from powder coating tonight. She's having some idle issues that still need to be worked out, but if the stars align, she'll be in running order in a week or so. 

Fingers crossed. 

It's getting damn hot out in Chicago, and I'd like to get some riding in before it's heat-stroke-season.
As you can see I went with a warm dark graphite metallic, after all those hours spent color tweaking in Photoshop.


  1. You do need a big boy camera :)

    Love where the CX is going!!

  2. I'm going to need to borrow the D50 we have at work to play photographer for a day once she's all buttoned up.

    Luckily I also have photog friends.

  4. I volunteer my Pentax for the job. It should be easy since I'm now across the street.

  5. I kind of stumbled upon this on your flickr...
    then oogled it for a while. Then looking at the wrenchmonkees cx I saw a comment by "mucci" about a cx build, and it brought me here.

    I have to say that's probably one of the cleanest CX500's I've seen to date. Nice Job.
