Here's one I just finished yesterday. Just need to mount the front fender.
What's the tank from?
Thank you. Yamaha XS750/850. I use them a lot. on XS650's XV920's and now on Honda CB.
well I'm digging it man.
Have any issues mounting?
got more pix?
Nice job, looks great..
Mounting was fairly simple - Here's some more pics with fender - finished.
Guy showed up at our local Caffeine and Octane show with this sweet little Yamaha 125cc twin cafe racer - made all the neat sounds and looked really cool
more pictures of it here:
Solaros1 I don't want to hijack the thread but what's the story with the Corvair in your pics?
78 suzuki gs1000c. 4,000 original miles. magnum research turbo, tracy body kit, morris mags.
It's one of the original Crown conversion kits from the late 1960's / early 1970's that swapped a small block chevy V-8 into the former back seat area of the Corvair body. That car has a 283 directly behind the driver and passenger . The Crown conversion used the stock Corvair transaxle since it was basically a regular Chevrolet transmission that was mated to a differential assembly. It wasn't terribly strong but I have seen a 455 Olds mated up to another Crown car in Atlanta many years ago. A new twist is to use the late model Corvette rear transaxle assembly instead of the original Corvair unit - this has the dual advantage of more gears/stronger gearbox as well as letting you move the engine back further in the chassis and increasing legroom.
The Corvair was for sale but I didn't get the guys number (purposely - I don't need any more projects....)
I have never seen one of those completely done up and I would love to have seen how the engine is mounted. Sweet...
I like the old school turn signal housing .And looks like a Cat Eye speedo. Think that is off a old Eldorado'?
Doesn't look like an Eldo tach to me.
The switch gear looks like it though...
Here's a CB550 built by Meyerbuilt Metalworks.

Nah, those things will just slow you down.
That's really nice. For some reason bmw and guzzi cafe bikes often look like stripped bmws/guzzis with all the required "cafe pieces" bolted on. This doesn't. It looks like it's supposed to be that way, if that makes any sense.
