Well, I wanted to feature a CX500 as according to some demand – it’s still “the cafe racer” people are looking for all over the web (next to Virago?). But it’s impossible to keep track of all CX builds.
So I chose Top 5 Honda CX500 builds… presented so far. Enjoy!
5. Honda CX500 Tracker by Brick House Builds
I kind of like the “controversial” color choice (gold/red/blue). This build is lightweight, nimble and probably after putting some all-terrain tires would do nicely in a soft off-road.
4. Project Twister from Wena Customs
Really interesting build from 2016. Very stylish, multiple custom shows winner from Poland. I like the cooper/silver look. And the exhaust really stands out.
I had the opportunity to see this CX500 live in Warsaw – it’s a really nice build with great attention to detail. But – unfortunately – it’s more of a show bike rather than a daily ride.

3. CX 500 “Japan Style” from Ed Turner Motorcycles
I don’t know if this is still a CX500. The engine (beautifully restored and customized) is I think the only thing left from stock Honda. The tank, frame, rear shock absorber, wheels, forks – everything else is custom. Put together with a perfect sense of style and design – that’s why I like this one.
2. Type 8 from Auto Fabrica
You would think that it’s impossible to stand out when You choose this popular base for Your build. But just look at this one.
I actually don’t know and don’t care about the sound/performance/practicality here… but I know that I wouldn’t mind hanging this piece of metal over my fireplace 🙂
I definitely belong to “Art build” motorcycle category.

1. CX500 Cafe Racer BT-01 from Blacktrack Motors
This build is perfect. The color choice, the line, the proportions… the tiny exhaust… and these wheels. What is most interesting – the builder decided to run a short series (25) of these CX’s under a new brand created especially for this purpose!
They are not cheap, but they are the real deal. Not just “cafe racer styled builds”, but a 100% performance machines.
