1960s cafe style

Back when we built our bikes to thrash them, not polish them

That's a Honda CB450, but don't know enough to say if it is a 4 speed or a 5 speed engine.

R85/8,
Those are the best pictures in the thread, thanks for posting them!

Looks like it once was a Honda CB450, very nicely done though.

That's the "Brass Cafe" that Dime City did for season 1 of Cafe Racer on what is now Velocity.

Saw this one at the Ephrata, PA "First Sunday" ride-in earlier this month. Assume it's an RD350 with some nice homebuilt touches like the exhaust and monoshock conversion.

Doesn't look all too bad for a bike that's uncomfortable and won't handle worth a shit

Café racer BMW r980

Hello I am a guy from Spain, I have completed my transformation from a BMW r100rs the year 77. I wanted to share with all people who love the style Caferacer. This would help with some photos. A greeting
