1983 Honda CX650E from New Zealand
I love the v twin look, sound and tractable power it makes; an awesome old girl!
Front brakes were a bit seized; rear brake required new pads.
I bought this bike off my brother, who hadn't started it for 6 years. After putting in fresh gas and a battery, it started right up.
I am going to make it into a cafe racer eventually, but for now I am just doing small things like fluid changes, new plugs, brake bleeds etc, and will get a WOF soon and get it registered again (it's on hold).
I had a 500 Euro decades ago, but love the 650 power and torque. And the sound is wonderful!
I've had over 20 bikes in my lifetime, but this one has to be the most fun, with the greatest sound of all.
It's just so much fun, and extremely comfortable too.
I don't think I will ever sell it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
