Got the wiring harness for the CX500 all laid out on my floor and pretty much everything is working! New ignition cylinder arrived today, and while the stock mounting location is currently MIA I’m sure I’ll be able to figure out someplace to put it. Tomorrow I’ll go throw this and my new carbs in the general direction of the motorcycle and see if I can get it to fire up!
STILL TO DO:
Re-shape/reupholster super generic Amazon cafe seat
Do some soldering on my hand controls
Accordion fork dust gaiters
Mount hall effect speedo sensor
Run tach wire
Weld up new smaller mufflers at a 45-degree upsweep
Remove dent from tank
New rear shocks
Obviously a lot of that is going to wait until I have an actual workshop to work on this thing but the super necessary parts should be doable in my closet-sized storage unit.
