To build a simple and fun cafe racer on a budget.
A cafe racer bike seemed like a fun project that I could build on a budget. I also love the sound of a Japanese carbureted inline 4.
Shaving the fuel tank badges and fuel cap lock. I ended up putting a hole in the gas tank removing a factory spot weld, but thankfully, my local radiator shop brazed it up for me!
When riding this bike, I feel proud that I had my hands on every part at one time and if something breaks, I know I can fix it without bringing to a shop to plug it in to a computer.
My wife says “It’s very pretty!” She’s a sweetheart!
