Meh... it's okay...

I object to having a rusty tank, and prestine components.

Built by Cafe Racer Dreams so technically you are wrong. It is a Cafe Racer by brand....even though not a cafe racer in style. I'll let them know they should only build cafe racers from now on.

True if you go back to the origins it would be any vintage style bike used to race from one pub to the other...fairings be damned

well for starters i guess i feel cafe racer is too loosely used now a days, to be a "real" cafe it needs to have things that would put it in that class of bike. to me this bike and the other thread neither fit the bill, this one is 1 step towards it with the clip on style bars but that's it. the other bike is nothing cafe racer IMO.

I worked at a shop building cafe racers (bobbers also) so i do have experience not just an opinion.
I really didn't mean anything by my comment other than i feel it's not a cafe racer. not crapping on it cause it's still a cool ass bike and i bet the builder would also agree it's not a full on cafe racer. there are some things needed to put it in the "cafe racer" box and it is missing those items, he was obviously not shooting for that style because they can obviously build a cafe if they wanted to.

Agree with 1is2many that it's not really a 'true' cafe.. I don't hate it by any stretch though.

Not a huge fan of the tank.. It clashes with the rest of the bike, and the rust looks to be painted/ airbrushed on. Rusted out tanks are cool.. If the rest of the bike fits the same motif.

Like I said though, don't hate it at all.

you guys are faggots.

Cafe racer. Bike modified by its owner. Bike used to zip between pubs and coffee places. Fuckers used to put a song on and try to make it before that song was over.

I.e. Fucking anything used to do the fucking ton from one place to another, usually a normal bike modded to hell.

Racing on the street on those tyres might be a little sketchy..

I really liked the end result when we finished this one, it was far from our best one tho. But the pipe/header is so sexy.
