Some warmer weather finally arriving here.
Have made it out to a few Meets, and have had a number of rides.
Am liking the higher handle bars.

I like the wheels on the CBX, they look like the Japanese PMC wheels...

I'm not sure what brand it is.
I got it with some other parts I bought a long time ago.

Fantastic good looking bike !  real nice color i first tought it was candy sky blue like on the 1975 honda goldwing but reading the tread better it was Lagoon Turquoise Metallic .
Good idea to make some more space in the fastback i did that on another bike but into the seat,
I like the look with that cowling do you have a link to where you bought it?

The fairing I bought off ebay, and had it colour matched.
