 About the Book 

When Honda released the CX500, the sales brochure stated First into the Future, and described the bike as a road sports V-twin. Hondas first venture into the V-twin engine market, with water cooling and shaft drive, was certainly different from their previous twin- and four-cylinder models. Known for its good handling and fuel economy, the low maintenance Honda was comfortable, loved by tourers and couriers alike and, after overcoming early teething troubles, developed a reputation for reliability. Sportier models incorporating turbochargers were also released, for those looking for an additional adrenaline rush. After thirty years, theres now a resurgence of interest in the CX models, both from restorers and custom builders, with aftermarket café racer kits available, too.The techniques, tips and tricks used by an experienced restorer will save you time and money. Youll see that you dont need expert knowledge or a fully fitted workshop for a restoration project. Packed full with photographs and detailed instructions, this book is your perfect guide, from start to finish.
