Honda CX500 Retro Rebuilds (1)

Three weeks ago we’ve featured this cool Honda CL350 Brat build by John Thompson, owner of Retro Rebuilds. He’s specialized in (re)building vintage Honda motorcycles. He built up a pretty firm list of custom bikes and today he presented us his latest machine based on a 1982 Honda CX500. And as many readers may know, I have a special “thing” with the CX500, as it was this machine that made me start this blog three years ago.

John aimed to create a “modern-day warrior” to attack the streets of a downtown city. And if you take a good look, it may look like a direct relative of David Bailey’s Yamaha Virago we’ve featured back in 2015. Go ahead, see for yourself: XV920 Virago by David Bailey.
