Although many couriers obviously appreciated the Honda CX 500 for its reliability and practicality, its comic artist and cult character Brösel (“Werner, Or Was”) lent the unflattering nickname “slurry pump”.
Nevertheless, it became a success story and continues to enjoy a growing fan base today. Their technical refinements and the powerful engine convinced bikers in the late 1970s. Meanwhile, the “slurry pump” is experiencing a renaissance and is often used by biker tuning forges and motorcycle screwdrivers as the starting point for “Café Racer Projects”.
The success story of Jung Pumpen GmbH from Steinhagen also started with hand-operated slurry pumps for agriculture. Today, they are located in the company’s own museum, and the now globally active company produces wastewater pumps and sewage lifting systems for building drainage and municipal wastewater transport on site. For the 95th company birthday but it will give back slurry pumps – only this time a little differently.
Any recreational mechanic who has converted a Honda CX series motorcycle into a cool “slurry pump” or is in the process of being challenged will be invited to participate. Photos of your own conversion can be uploaded to the website until July 19, 2019. Experts from the custom scene select the best conversion at a motorcycle meeting on 18 August 2019 at Kabelwerk B64 in Beelen.
