getting the hump

A fair amount of the un-neccesary frame work has been cut from the cafe racer and the new tank put on, removed the clocks and also ordered a smaller headlight and the arms to hold it. Most of the afternoon was taken up with making the tail section and seating mould ready to be fibre-glassed (many thanks to karen & wayne for their help).
Plans for this bike include :
  • Upgrading the front end to double discs
  • Re-build the engine due to gasket leaks and polish ports etc during re-build
  • fit lower bars
  • move electrics to centre of the bike
  • make aliminium rear sets (footpegs and associated levers)
  • make twin stub exhausts
  • make a lighter and more attractive chain cover
For more photos of the build look at the photo album on facebook titled 'cafe racer'
