I got into the Honda cx500 and 650 series from tge early '80's a number of years ago. Simewhat of a hobby. Central and northern Pa (above rt 80) has good riding.

They made turbo versions of the 500 and 650 versions. Shown is a canadian 650 Eurosport (not imported to the U.S. but brought down) and a 500 turbo. I've had each of the other model styles in the past including the silverwing.

The 650 turbos will still accelerate with modern sportbikes up to about 125 and after the boost is loaded. The 500 turbo had a early (one of the first) computerized ignition. and was highly touted by Honda engineers. I believe it had the smallest production turbocharger to that time period and for many years folliwing. I'm not sure if some of the small diesel tractors would have smaller turbos now.

The 500 standard and deluxes are commonly modded into cafe racers. Here is a picture of what some artist did with some 500 standards. His name is sacha something I think. He's offered to make copies of these in the 50,000 $ range plus or minus depending on if they get titanium fasteners.

A friend of mine who lives about 20 miles away has a sidecar manufacturing business and makes his own line of sidecars or installs other brands ir trike kits. Its often interesting to see what he's working on since they get involved in lots of custom work. If your interested in sidexars, follow his facebook page.

Sorry if the pics come out inveerted. Must be a software glitch.

Here is a picture of a Gl 500 Silverwing interstate. Yes, a full dresser on a 50-cc motor. Top speed may have been 95 tops (downhill, with a light rider), but it would do 75-80 all day comfortably if needed. We have a yearly rally in central Pa, which draws just 20-30 people but they come from about 12 states plus Canada....and a few aussies and irishmen have attended.


Here is the club forum.

Is that your bike searcher? Or just posting someone elses video?

Anyone whos renovated or restored a motorcycle will appreceate this video. The song fits so well with the therapeautic value of recreating something. "Leave me in peace while I get the job done"

Published on Feb 19, 2017
I have been working on this engine at night and on rainy days for a while and have a few videos ready. I was trying to decide if I was going to upload them or not. This is not for everyone, but if you like them, let me know. Just remember, if you don't like them, you don't have to watch. If you want to know how an engine works, you will know after this series is over. Any questions just ask.

A BIKERS LIFE FOR ME (Documentary)
Kai Zammit


Published on Jan 29, 2015
A documentary that features awesome motorcycles, fantastic people and a lifestyle like no other. This is A BIKERS LIFE FOR ME.

A Kai Zammit film, A Bikers Life For Me or ABLFM for short is a documentary filmed in the heart of Southend, Essex, UK. The 25-minute documentary introduces you to a variety of characters and places all set within the biking world. Onlookers sometimes oversee the biking world and don’t fully understand it. I tried to show a fun side to the lifestyle and not your usual bad-boys life that the TV companies both UK and USA like to portray. I was shown a lot whilst making this film and every part of it was great fun and I would say it was one of the best times in my life. Can I say it’s a biker’s life for me? Well thanks to these fantastic people and a special thank you to Chris Ball aka Flux, I would happily welcome this lifestyle.

Since the making of this film, Andy and Flux decided to part ways to pursue different things but both still make custom choppers.

Chris Ball aka Flux is a custom bike builder located in Leigh-on-sea/Southend, UK.
His Instagram: http://instagram.com/fluxchoppers/ and his Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/chris.ball.1...

Leigh Classics & Customs owned by Andy Bray is a motorbike shop located in Leigh-on-sea, Essex, UK.

I am an independent filmmaker working of a variety of projects such as shortfilms, corporate pieces to music videos; please feel free to contact me if you want to chat about a film you want made or if you want to work together on a project.




Camera used was a DSLR Canon 5d mark ii, lenses were a Canon 17-40mm f4 prime and a fantastic plastic, the Canon 50mm f1.8.

A special thank you to all those that helped make this possible and thank you to all that have watched, it means a lot to me.

How to sync carburetors throttle bodies the right and WRONG way!
Shane Conley


Published on Mar 10, 2017
Have you attempted to synchronize carbs or throttle bodies but after the gauges are equal it runs worse and sounds terrible? So have many others. Watch this video for the reasons why this may be happening. Gain back your faith in using the proper tool and quit tuning by ear!

If I can ever be of service to you, here is a video explains how to connect with me.

www.How2Wrench.com broke the mold of the delivery of tech training. We offer professional tech training over the phone. Your shop, your schedule. If you have Apple products, we can even provide guided assistance over Facetime. (I suggest asking a friend to borrow theirs now!)

Imagine this… you’re in your shop wrenching away and you get stuck. You just hit a wall and no matter how hard you try, you can’t find a next step. You reach for the phone and hit speed dial. The number saved in your favorites is your personal coach at How2wrench! No sitting through hours of YouTube videos, websites or giving up!

You can schedule time with a veteran technician to walk you through what you’re wrenching on. You can email info, photos and details directly to trainer. It’s the next closest thing to us sitting right next to you.

This service is intended to fill the gap in many areas of need. Let me list a few:

The DIY person needing help with a specific skill
A tech just needing an advanced lesson or next step in their knowledge base
Someone who would give anything to drop everything and move to a tech school but life just didn’t deal those cards. They understand the learning curve may take longer but are relentless in their desire to learn.
Observant parents lacking the skill sets to teach their kids mechanics but see them craving to use tools and their hands.
