Tommy's '78 CX500
By Anthony van Someren - 23 Jan 13
Dave Mucci the CX was selected as solid, reliable but still able to be customised into a cool ride, and the story began. "When I first bought this bike last summer it was far from clean and in very poor condition. The previous owner had attempted to turn the bike into a chopper, but instead of actually chopping it he just took everything apart, painted her with pin striping, lowered the rear end and added a one-up seat" Sycl Batteries, replaced the blown battery free of charge. "I'd heard nightmarish tales of being stranded on the side of the road thanks to the CDI boxes giving up, so I ended getting in on a group-buy for an Ignitech system for ~$140 (money well spent). After all the controls were cleaned out and soldered up (they were not working before) I figured I was done with the electronics forever."
