I do not like the look of 17" wheels on a classic CBX. May be acceptable on a custom with a changed front end. The front fender needs to adjust to the smaller wheel and the rear has too much open space to the rear frame.
I think that they can look great with USD forks and a fat swingarm if you're willing to slam the bike down a bit and go with a different tail section. IMO bikeymikey748's Pro-Link is a perfect example of this.

But on an otherwise near-stock bike, I agree that the proportions are off and the look is never quite right.
