Here we have one of the prettiest Honda CX500 customs ever, built by Lars Engelviken of Norway’s Therapy Moto. The “Poor Man’s Guzzi” is a tough bike to turn pretty, but Lars managed just that. He calls the bike his “Ugly Duckling,” but this little duckling has been transformed into a dive-bomber.
The bike now sports a brat seat, relocated electronics, velocity stacks, aggressive rubber, and a shorty exhaust. Taller rear shocks help eliminated the cruiser-ish backwards rake of the original, and a low-mounted aftermarket headlight sharpens the front of the bike.
