    Spirit of the 70's is doing a vintage take on a modern Triumph 675. No full shots yet, just a couple teasers:

    If someone built Olds Cool fairings looking like that one on the 675 trumpet - say for late model jap sportbikes - at a reasonable price I bet they would thrive. All those bashed up stunter R1's out there just waiting to be reclothed into old school cafe racers.

    I always thought that with the right bodywork, tank/seat/tail, a set of clip-on's, and a big single headlight you could do a reasonable cool cafe out of a first gen FZ1.

    My '75 Honda 400F was a great little cafe racer.

    Brought it home in the crate. Sadly, I sold as I did not know what i had at the time. The foolishness of youth...

    Holy Smokes!

    I had the same 400 in the same color back in 77. I wish I had a fairing like that on mine! Wouldn't have froze my azz off in the winter. Those bikes had really nice engines when they were fresh. Sounded a little "Chain'y" after 10K or so.

    The whole picture is kinda kewl!

    That is a piece of art, worthy of a museum.

    If the Museum includes Rolling Concours or the road, yes...
