    At 14 to 1 (R215 ex postage), it's hardly worth the hassle.

    Do any of you know someone who can 'copy' things with fibreglass.
    I would rather pay R150 and have a fibreglass copy than paying R250 for a piece of plastic.

    Maybe try someone who repairs boats... they do fibreglass

    Depending on what plastic you talking about and the extent of the damage, I can probably fix it. Not fibre glass, but a method that works just as well. It works best on the clock plastics and once it is spraid you wont even see the damage

    Thanks Cronos, But unfortunately I do not even have mine anymore. If I had pieces I would have considered glueing it together.

    I know the screen helps with wind resistance.

    But doesn't it look a bit like a 'apteek' bike?

    What is the price on one of those screens? I may just consider it...

    peppers screen.jpg

    For the more stylish version, this is a puig windy i had for a couple weeks before my last off. and it works a dream, bike was alot smoother and accelerated alot nicer at high speeds, plus it did the job i had hoped for, when i crashed, the screen smashed and not my clock unit. and it was only 1grand, loosen the headlight bolts, slip the screen brackets on and tighten. Trust me this should be a stock part form honda i swear it.
    Lifes like riding the open road. its got its up hills, down hills, its thunderstorms and sunshine, doesnt matter where your going as long as you enjoy the ride

    It does spoil the looks a bit, but that's something I gladly offer up for the added comfort. I paid about R700 secondhand in good condition. They're about R1300 new.

    Can anyone offer advice on where to find a bracket for the CBX? I want to mount a top box. In Cape Town, btw.

    Am getting my front mud gaurd done by omega in Doornfontein. Will be able to tell u what kinda work they do on repairing latter this week. but they are friendly and the price he qouted(R250) is alot cheaper then honda(R1800 new). even if i have to spray it my self, thats way way better then getting dooped by honda. not that i dont mind supporting the big H. this is a little bike, not a fireblade. the prices should reflect that.

    Hobbes, that really does not look bad. I would drive with one like that, but the ones that the Autozone CBX's have on is UGLY.

    well my view is, that the cbx is an amazing machine for the city, it has ideal power and is one of the only small bikes you get a proper feel from in the corners, but the larger screens and topboxes make them into delivery boy bikes. and thats a shame, because its really is a sporty little machines. i see the benefits of the larger screen, but if you are doing that much high way then u should get a bigger bike with a bigger screen(like an omb), the cbx is a star at traffic light shoot outs, and thats why i got the little screen, but that’s my personal view,
    not that I have much room to say as my bikes on a lift in a thousand pieces
