    Yea, so when he dies we can buy all these barn finds of his wife who just wants the cash, and then make more of these custom bikes. :D

    To the OP, very nice job.
    I love the exhaust

    Ah, the story line is coming together now. This is the Cafe Racer TV build, no?

    Ya know--

    I don't normally wade into this clearly ignorant type of mud slinging, but, in this case, given the recipient of your raucous behavior, I feel I can no longer keep my tongue, so to speak.

    Let me suffice it to say that, in the words of the Deadwood era, you, sir, suck cock by choice.

    Sincerely--

    Mr Boxermetal
    Sorry to hijack this thread, but I happened to be window shopping on your site last night!

    I was wondering whether you are considering building bolt-on subframes to suit the current scrambler/brat/cafe trend? Given the quality of your other items, I would be interested in buying one.

    Feel free to PM me if its possible, as I don't get on here much.

    Nice to get the preview, my imagination is running wild, thanks. I like what I see so far, can hardly wait to see and HEAR the finished build.

    I had some lugs machined to build custom rear frames and that's as far as I got. I could build you a rear frame or send you some of the lugs.

    The first photo in this thread says this guy knows what he's doing. I mean, an ME33!!
    (don't care what they call them these days)
    All starts with a good foundation.

    I like how the speedo symbols spell my name (DAN), since it has my name on it, can I have it?

    Vulture Culture....

    That's funny.

    Quick! everyone we have to save the R90S! they are an endangered species...

    What ever you do, don't make cool bikes with great little touches.

    Airheads are special and best just as they came from from der factory.:rofl:rofl

    Looks like you got the foundation for a very cool machine.

    Now... About this filming deal.

    Is this one of those shows where there's all this made up tension, and some fake deadline?
    Or will it be more waxing poetically about the freedom of the machine and the elemental soul of an airhead?

    Have they shot the token B-Roll of sparks flying from a grinder shot yet? Because it's not a motorcycle making movie
    until there's sparks flying from grinders..

    Beards, beer and Belstaffs? With Selvedge jeans and Redwing boots?

    Ok I'm kidding, I like your work and it's great that you are getting some exposure.
    And I think this bike is going to very cool. I'm looking forward to the embargo being lifted and we can see more then just the teaser shots.

    I've always loved how the face-like front covers make for a great Miyazaki character--like 'Howl's Flying Airhead.'
