The 550 was my first street bike so I'm emotionally attached.
Agree. This bike inspires me to want to build one.
Up for constructive criticism
- clip-ons and rear-sets so that you can get down on it!! Slightly more up-swept silencer (muffler?), tank and seat unit in polished alloy, seat fabric heavy duty suede leather (gets wet in the rain but what the heck - you are going to ride it in the wet aren't you?) That's a big problem now in the UK - too many diesel spills to make riding in the rain a safe proposition like it used to be, back in the day..........
Personally I can't stand anything but spoked wheels on a cafe bike, with rare exceptions. I'd ditch the cast wheels for some spokers.
Back when we built our bikes to thrash them, not polish them
Name that bike! It's my picture but I didn't note the model. I haven't got a clue. Anyone?
That's a Honda CB450, but don't know enough to say if it is a 4 speed or a 5 speed engine.
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.
XS 750 Triple , Special turned Cafe lite.
Nice work on a mid sized CB.
Fuzzy shot of a nice 500 CB.
That CB (?) in the background with the red wheels looks interesting, nice package.
Wrong thread , I know, but it's a request.
Doesn't look all too bad for a bike that's uncomfortable and won't handle worth a shit
Well then it should fit in just fine with most home built Cafe Racers...
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

That is interesting as well as beautifull !
I like where you placed the gauges, creative indeed!
