CBX by JD Max
« on: May 14, 2019, 08:36:16 am »
Look at this nice build by French guys, JD Max.
I could never latch unto the cafe racer trend of drop handles, why would you want to ride around with your face buried in the top yoke.
But this is a good build, like that beefy upside downies and the gull arm....

Ek stem saam, nie 'n baie "praktiese" fiets nie, maar ek hou van wat hulle met dit gedoen het.

I guess you have to be as old as I am, and be 'born into' the cafe racer culture. In my formative motorcycling years the only proper bike had clip on bars, rear set footpegs, a racing style seat, and swept back exhausts with empty megaphone 'silencers'. You had to be lying flat over the fuel tank in order to streamline yourself and counter the wind pressure at the speeds at which you were constantly riding.

Well, that was the image anyway.  8) :biggrin:

Of course in time you'd grow out of it and come to see the attraction of other styles of  bikes and riding, but some vestige of that style always remains, if only in the mind.

As for the CBX though, not my cuppa tea, if only because it's a bike that only looks good when it's spotlessly immaculate and polished to the nth degree. And it's a helluva lot of bike to keep in that condition!  :deal:

I often dont like what people have done to these bikes, but I do have to applaud the workmanship that goes into them.
Those pipes for example are a work of art, and look at the attention to detail on the tank cap.

My 79 model was standaard met baie chroom, maar ek hou van die een ook. Ek glo hy sal beter stop met daai discs. Myne het mooi gehardloop, maar draai en stop #!@&^!

Jip, that banana swing arm and shock, ex Aprilia. Brilliant built - must be a bitch to sync those 6 carbs....and keep it such for a while ( unless its just a show bike  :( )
