Top 5 Honda CX500 builds… so far

Well, I wanted to feature a 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 CX500 builds… presented so far. Enjoy!

5. Honda CX500 by

Honda CX500 Tracker by Brick House Builds
Let’s start a little different. It’s not a cafe racer. According to the builder – it’s a tracker. But IMHO it’s a 🙂 Regardless – it’s a and it’s different than 90% of other CX500’s.

I kind of like the “controversial” color choice (gold/red/blue). This build is light weight, nimble and probably after putting some all-terrain tires would do nice in a soft off-road.

4. Project Twister from 

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 really a 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 Motorcycles

CX 500 "Japan Style" from Ed Turner Motorcycles

I don’t know if this is still a CX500. The engine (beautifly 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

Honda CX500 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 to hang this piece of metal over my fireplace 🙂

I definitely belongs to “Art build” motorcycle category.

1. CX500 Cafe Racer BT-01 from Blacktrack Motors

CX500 Cafe Racer - BT-01 from Blacktrack Motors brand
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.
