dirt bike cafe racer pics
how many guys have converted their dirt bikes to cafe racers??
i got a XR600R in pieces atm but im going to cafe race it with alloy seat and tank & a custom subframe.
so post up any pics u got (doesn't have to be honda just any trail bike converted to cafe):deal
some example pics
below is a picture of my bike before the teardown and below that is a sketch in paint to give a rough idea of what it will looke like i am going for a modern take on the classic brittish cafe racer so it will be based on the classic bit have led lights, disc brakes, mono shock and USD forks:deal
it will have CR500 suspension 106mm piston, 90mm stroke, hot cam, flatslide pumper carb, bigfinned ported head with cloverleaf, oil cooler and about 50ish HP
341 views and no post surly someone on here has done something like this...?:huh
i found a few pics on google but was hoping some of u guys had some pics i hadn't seen and perhaps some more insight:deal
dont like cafes, the humped fender aint right & handlebars painful.
other than a streettracker, stock is better for me.
best of luck to ya
an i quite like your bike handlebars a tad low for me would kill my back (i intend on cheating by dropping the forks in the t's and running the clip ons above the fork t rather than under wont look quite as cool but will be a more comfortabe possi.
main point of thread was to see some of this thread users bike like yourself and see what u guys started with wat parts u bought/made and how it all ended up if anyone know of any build threads id love a link i did a search on here but found nothing. there is some cool stuff on rolland sands websight/ebay channel he done a KTM and a CR500 also pretty cool
im not too worried about top speed as i have no real intrest where i will be riding it ill be cruising at about 120km along the highway for only half hour at most then into the twisties where only 2nd-3rd gear will be used :freaky and thats where all the fun is to be had i had to laugh my father went through the twisties with a mate my father was on a triumph thruxton with a stage 1 cam ign box and pods and he beat his mate that was riding a hot cbr1000R because he couldnt use the power he had lol:deal
its a shame their are not more classic looking bikes around all i see is old 4cyl's and crap from the 80's+ no british heritage down here at all:huh
