Finally, the last step before the Bike Shed London 2018 Show is to start the CX500 Cafe Racer project. A few teething problems and bad wires, but it’s all go from here.

  1. Great start, you made my laugh lol. Probably a pain in the ass for you but seriously well done.

    Great show btw.

    Thank you!!

  2. great to see you finally get this going. i came to see it at the bikeshed with the family and it looks great in the flesh. i also just finished my first build of a scrambler and started it up after 15 frustrating months of building and learning and making mistakes in the garage. doesn’t look anywhere near as good as yours but it starts and the new daytona velo dial lights up with an rpm reading πŸ˜„

  3. Just got home from vacation! So happy to have all these videos to watch. The bike looks amazing! Great work

  4. Cant wait for the video were yo explain how to swap it from analogue to digital as this is a must for me as i have no clue how to go about this

  5. Nice. Thanks for your video's they're great. I just started my own little cafe racer project (first time ever. Yamaha SRV 250. Gotta start somewhere) and the wiring aspect seems a little daunting.

  6. Nothing better than hearing that first rumble. Even if it runs like shit, it's still exciting. Cant wait to see it finished.

  7. Hi mate! Have you got a water temp gauge anywhere on your bike? Also… How's the analogue oil temp gauge working for you?

  8. I've been scrolling through your videos trying to find which one had the link to the speedometer but I can't seem to find it

  9. I laughed so hard at the intro hahahaha!!! Great channel and the CX is has blossomed into a gorgeous machine. Keep up the great work!!!

  10. Yeah wow, it is still a hatefull job but the oxidised wire can go very deep. I replaced so many ground wires. Honda never uses waterproof connectors so the oxidation crawls trough the cables. You cant solder them anymore. Big pain in the ass. I use now waterproof amp superseal connectors. Love the sound of the engine!
