I'm sure somebody on here knows the details better than me, but that is a really cool bike and was done by some school / college kids with a really enlightened teacher. No lessons like that when I was at school .

Wideline frame post 54, Commando 850 motor, grimeca 4LS front brake, Triumph conical rear brake, Unity oil & gas tank, Excel non-shouldered rims, Avon roadrider tires, Unity triple trees, Hagon road shocks classic 1 design, Barlycorn rear sets, Unity swept back exhaust, Amal carbs, Manx front fender w/ Coverta Y-brackets, and I think that's a Lucas Rita ignition.

Article in current issue of Cycle World about these guys with a bunch more bikes. They have a different spin on the cafe thing - sorta a cross between a a conventional cafe and Russell Mitchell's Exile bike look with a functional, industrial, "been in use" look. Nice.
