How's this for a Cafe Racer?
« on: June 03, 2019, 08:08:25 am »
Guy I know in Muden picked this up for a bargain. Had been standing for years in a garage.

Removed about 100 kg in weight, including fairing with radio/tape player  :biggrin:

Looks and sounds awesome.

How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Whatever it is, it ain't my idea of a Cafe Racer. With high braced handlebars and Annakee tyres, it's more like what's passed off these days as a scrambler.
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

I met a guy on the Distinguished Gentlemen's ride with a MUCH better Gold wing Cafe Racer.  It was actually really nice.  That one looks a bit backyard bodged.


Trying to find a pic.
