Typically, if we were to say Honda CX500 custom, you would probably continue scrolling. But what Thomas Parrish (owner/operator of Kustom Research) has done with this 2-wheeler may lead to a change of heart.

Considered by many to be one of the ugliest horses from the Honda stable, the CX500 can be a great platform for would-be and up-and-coming custom bike builders to really stand out in the crowd. That’s exactly what Parrish did. Working as an engineer by day, he had to dedicate nights and weekends to transforming this motorcycle from ugly duckling to cream of the crop. The vehicle has been outfitted with a slew of custom components from the headlight mount up front all the way down to the rear subframe out black. The black and white paint job was the perfect color scheme when it came to creating a bike that’s worthy of all enthusiasts attention.
