    A search revealed that there is no single cafe racer pic thread, and I think we need one.. and I need inspiration (for my next BMW project).

    Let's see some sweet cafe racers.



    (or, are noobs not supposed to start threads?)

    take it from me, don't do it- you put yourself up for ridicule, and then they start expecting things from you. Just leave it alone, keep lurking, and hope that the thread you want pops up here some day.

    Ah.. just what I was looking for.

    What is your attitude about/experience with no rear fender?

    Look closely at the first pic of the /5. I use a 4" x 16" x .125" ALU strip from the bottom of the battery box to the subframe crossover (under the seat) as an inner fender. Without it, all kinds of road trash gets thrown on the engine.

    Front fenders are for sissies, so when it rains, your face gets wet, and turns a nice shade of brown/gray.

    Ah. Excellent.

    I don't want this thread to be brand specific. I want to see all kinds of cafe racers. I just happen to have a BMW that I am thinking of cafe'ing.
