Re: NeverEnough's CX500- Barn Find Build

Dude me too! I have always wanted one of these! I AM SOOO STOKED to have one!
The motor looks so modern too, I can't wait to have this thing all debadged and having people scratching their heads as to what bike it is, especially once I have it all updated, it will look like some new 2014 bike!:D:D

Ah I know that bike! Lol man you had me worried when you said you traded an AR for that front end. I was gonna say you got fucking robbed but then I saw the $500 on top. Sounds like both of yall got a fair trade. The CX looks great with a USD front end on it.

haha yeah its a real good friend of mine that I traded the AR to for the front end. I'd say it was pretty fair deal, I don't like to rip off my friends lol.
Glad you like the USDs too, I think I'm gonna have a helluva crazy time wasting money mixing in more gold accents now haha

Copy cat! Everybody's trying to be as handsome as me for the 2014 buildoff.

Try an older sport bike gas tank. Maybe an 80s Ninja or early VFR. A decent amount of the early middleweight sportbikes still had backbone frames. Shoot, a Honda 919 tank might even work. The CX500D tank looks the part, but takes some work to make it fit to the CX500C.

You could always go low-buck cafe racer and just pound some knee dents into it.

Pshhh I can only dream to be as handsome as your for the buildoff!
A tank "Swap" may or may not happen now.... I was getting irritated with my options and so I went and bought 5' of 3" 3/16" metal square stock. :confused: What does that have to do with a gastank?....EVERYTHING;)

Re: NeverEnough's CX500- Barn Find Build

The photos with your e46 towing just reminds me I need a hitch for my ti... And to get it back on the road. Fuck BMW makes awesome cars. Even their shitbox econo-ride from the 90's (318ti) is a great car.
HELLS YES they do man! I LOVE me some bimmers! Had a e30 318is, lowered, LSD, 5spd....freaking awesome car to drive. Now this e36 I have is just supposed to be a decent enjoyable nice DD car....til the motor blows and I put a ford 5.0 swap in it!:nuts:

Re: NeverEnough's CX500- Barn Find Build

My buddy has an audi s4 thats pushing something like 500awdhp to the street and he is REALLY trying to convince me to build a turbo m50 frankenstein motor for my ti... rear subframe reinforcement, e30 lsd diff with e30 axles...

I should probably stop shitting up your motorbike thread with the cage talk tho eh? :D

haha I've got a buddy with an s4 too.....not as much hp though... Can't say I exactly love the car, he does...but I like my bimmers. And as far as building up the m50, I just can't justify the price when other motors can be swapped in so easily for so much cheaper.


lol all good though about cage talk..... building is what is fun no matter how many wheels!:thumbsup:

Re: NeverEnough's CX500- Barn Find Build

UGH, CRAP!...... not at all sure what to do about the rear end. It will end up costing me probably close to 400bucks to get all the parts I need.
