On some Sunday mornings, I ride to the local bike hangout at a Speedway station not too far from me. Yesterday morning, I went to the local (some say World Famous, where is it said that Elvis once ate) Coney Island hot dog place in Brooksville FL for a VJMC bike gathering before they went on an unofficial Xmas ride. The weather was iffy around 9 AM and I rode my 450 despite not being convinced the clouds would clear and the misting, almost light rain would go away... the crowd was less than expected, but still included quite a few vintage Hondas and a couple of others here and there
Tom, nice job on the picture, but did you have to show the CBXes? The CB750 is especially juicy. I think it is a '74. I like the fairing on the CX500. I have toyed with the idea of one for my 450. Were those mufflers on the GL1000 from a Sportster? All four of them.

Yes a lovely 750!
Thanks for sharing Tom.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

My son lives in St Pete and the last ime I was there we rode up to that place. It must be somewhat of a riding destination for the locals. As far as the wing goes, yes those are Sporster mufflers. The bike is owned by a very talented fella that goes by Wog on the NGW club site. He's built a few unique wings. You can find a build thread (as well as he other build threads) there. Thanks for posting the pictures.

hell yeah! A 'Love Dub' Thanks. @ancientdad
Taking it out tomorrow...will report back how it performs in the cold, 42 degree weather. At least the sun is slated to be out. Friday is gonna be 55 but of course, pissing rain.
Well, the W performed admirably today. Started right up and off I went in 38 degrees. No issues but due to cold I managed to go no faster than 50 and only went for an hour tops.
