Excerpt:

My friends at George’s Garage in Luxembourg had a good old CX500 from 1982 standing in one corner of their garage, and some spare special parts scattered on the shelves in the other.

For my part, I have always been a great fan of the engine of this machine, a magnificent 80-degree V-twin engine full of character and very aesthetic, that I have tried to highlight further by adding an Y-shaped exhaust manifold.
The other original and very successful piece is the tank. The design is quite modern and well proportioned, I have simply made it more dynamic by shifting the position forward some 10 degrees.

For the rest, I have applied the same recipe as for the Voxan Black Magic that I designed in 2004. The color codes are quite similar with a dominant matt black, a touch of red and aluminium.
The overall design is minimalist and serves just one thing, to draw attention to the engine.
