Best use yet for the unloved Honda CX500. Seen at Weaver Motorsports
Vintage Saturday in N. Tonawanda, NY. June 26, 2010. Built and ridden by
owner Chad Herkey. Best in Show Trophy winner! Minimalist, less-is-more,
simplicate-and-add-lightness, whatever, it's a jewel. I want one.
8 Minutes with Dime City Cycles - A look behind the scenes of The Wing'd Piston
In a few short years Dime City Cycles has been fortunate enough to earn a
loyal following as one of the many contributors to the revival of vintage
speed machines. In 2012 a team of students from Full Sail University, that
were interested in vintage motorcycles, Cafe Racers in specific, approached
Jason and Herm and asked if they could do their final project on the Dime
City Cycles brand.
They spent roughly three days shooting and a TON of time in the editing
room and came up with this final piece. In our opinion, it's perfect, it
tells our story giving those who already know us a little more intimate
view of the interior while at the same time giving those who do not yet
know us the opportunity to introduce ourselves.
Special thanks to Duke and his entire team, job well done guys!
1978 Honda CX500 cold start + test drive
Edit: in 2013 this engine was replaced by a brand new engine. Check my
This is my 1978 Honda CX 500. After the first test run I wasn't happy with
it. So last week I replaced the stator with a new one. But it still doesn't
sound well. It starts on the left cylinder. When the engine warms up, the
right cylinder comes in. From then on it runs fine.
1979 Honda CX 500 Custom Test Drive
Created on September 23, 2011 using FlipShare. We sold this motorcycle on
ebay for $700.00. I am left this video up since it is neat to see a vintage
bike riding on the road.
1981 Honda GL500
This is my boy Jason's new bike project. It is an 81 Honda 500. We are
going to build a bunch of custom stuff for it, airbrush the tank and
fenders, all that. Should be a good project. All we did before starting it
was change the oil, fresh gas, Seafoam, and the help of some starting
"Low and Mean" Cafe Racer 500 from 78 Honda CX500, Walk around and build,

1981 Honda CX500 Custom
This is my 1981 Honda CX500 Custom with only 10k miles. I just got done
with an 8 month restoration project. I had the tank repainted, new carb
gaskets, needles, and float needles. Its finally done and looks great. I
apologize for the camera quality and the microphone...its a cheap $50
camcorder that I picked up at Walmart.
