So what are the plans for it? What do you want to change, or modify?

Here's my "Sporty Sportster" cooling off after a brisk 80 mile run this past weekend. I won't call it a cafe, since it doesn't quite fit the accepted definition. Still has a little gas in the tank...

this looks fun....

Left corners may scuff up the license plate, though!

I've really enjoyed the weeks it's taken me to get all the way through this thread. Figured I'd toss in a few from a friend's collection. This one was a ratted out track tool until last year. Turned out nice.

This big pistoned '59 Fury was a box of most of the old parts buried in the corner of the basement until a few month's ago. It got an award at Riding Into History this year a few month's after opening the box. It turned out pretty nice too.

Not Really a cafe racer but...

Another member suggested I post this one here.

The Before Pics. A bit too Peter Parker for me.
From 1977 Puch

From 1977 Puch


It's a 1977 Puch Newport Moped. Originally 50cc. Law permitted it to go no faster than 30mph but when I bought it, a few years back, it topped out at 16-17mph going down hill with a 20 mph wind behind it. I weigh 200lbs but come on.

After Shots:
It's got 70cc now and pretty much the only thing that wasn't changed was the wheels. Which I plan on changing at some point. I have a set of alloys for it in my garage but I gotta get em powder coated and get new axles for them.
