Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Bear, I had a dig through your photobucket and there's some great tricks for dropping one of these bikes. I'm sure you wouldn't mind if I pinched one or two? :D

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Prof, Having just reread your post it makes a lot more sense to me. It might also help that I now have my Irlen glasses and everything now makes more sense! That could really work well. Certainly something to consider. Slight change over the weekend. Much better I reckon. Before: http://i216.photobu...

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

I wasn't plan on touching the front of the frame at all. I figured the front engine hanger could be modified to lower the engine by adding extra height to the top of it. Either that or bolt the hanger onto a section that bolts onto the where the hanger would normally attach to the frame. The hanger ...

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Ok, so yesterday I'm looking at the bike and thinking I don't like the angle of the engine, or the angle the driveshaft sits in relation to the engine. I thought it'd be great to lower the front of the engine a little and was musing for a bit then went onto other things. Almost by accident I came ac...

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Hmmm.

I have been contemplating cutting the whole back end off at some point and welding in a whole new subframe. I'm not fussed about using shocks as the plan has been to hardtail it from the start.

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

All things worth thinking about. I'm not sure I could chop shocks from 330mm to 200mm though :?

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Bought a bates style headlight the other day so I made up a mount for it today: http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc38/staffyishere/CX500%20Cafe/20130615_144732_zps0a717a0d.jpg http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc38/staffyishere/CX500%20Cafe/20130615_144759_zps6e975d98.jpg I also got a front fende...

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

Great story Prof!

The name popped straight into my head when I read it too. I've seen various things about them before but never met someone who's actually owned one. I guess with that thin case they'd be few and far between now. :(

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

That thing is fantastic!

I have to say, I am a fan of the bars turned over like that. They are quite comfy.

What are those two bikes anyway? I can't pick 'em.

Re: Staffy's CX500 bobber

I did it more for a make do until I decided what bars I was going to run with, but once I'd flipped them I was sold.

Staffy's CX500 bobber

So I finished building my CX500 touring bike earlier this year and around that time an opportunity came up to buy this bike: http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc38/staffyishere/CX500%20Cafe/20130328_073501_zps65459b0f.jpg My back didn't like it too much when I was riding it so it was always going t...

Re: G'day, Staffy from Adelaide

Would I be anything but Bear? Prof, I may know a few of them too. I've been on board the Aussie CX forum for quite a few years now and have just finished building this. http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc38/staffyishere/shot_1362030766122_zps273b33db.jpg And am currently working on this http://i21...
