The steel plate holds the crankshaft gear.

What turns the bolts?

Very nice.

I think I'd like the windjammer fairing better, a little wider.

I do like the Windjammer a little better than the Hondaline, the weather protection seems better. Bought the bike without fairing because first owner had a low speed spill and broke it. Second owner rigged a headlight and rode it naked. This Windjammer was given to me years ago and had been setting in the garage waiting for a bike, so it worked out well.

No one has mentioned the real draw of the CX/GL bikes, the strong resemblance of the valve covers to a woman's breasts. You can even warm your cold hands on them and not get slapped.

Never thought of that, though I did warm my hands on them a bunch of times on cold rides.

And from now on (thanks to hugemoth) - everytime you warm your hands - it will put a grin on your mug.

Got Mine!

I picked up my new project ('82 GL500) from a friend who had lost interest after a complete dismantle (he had aspirations to "cafe" it). I wound up trading him a few RC planes for it!

Hope to start the re-assembly process soon with new paint, goodies and improvements.

Wish me luck!

Greg

Another CX500 has shown up for sale somewhat locally, 81 model with 36k miles on it, according to the owner needs some carb & brake work, but has good compression.. for $400.. Hmmmm.... I haven't seen it yet. Might just have to hook up a trailer and go get it.

Sweet, I'm guessing you hid the battery under the cafe seat cowling?
Simple clean lines, I like it!

Also is that an 18" or 16" rear?

Yeah battery is under the seat and it a 18 rear with a 130/90/18 tire which is a tad too wide.

10/4 that! I had to grind the excess metal on my swing arm for my 18 knobby to clear also.
