Sounds good. I leave next Sunday for ride out to California. I work as a flagger at Laguna Seca for the motogp races. I'll be back the beginning of August.

Apologies Aric, been away from the forum for a while.
Only ever made one of those huggers, it was quite a process. I have a mould for it but the hugger was designed to go on bikes with the rear disk brake since it uses the brake torque arm as a mounting point.

If your bike was the same then I might have been persuaded...

Don't think I've added my current project to this post, so here it is. I don't have a huge budget for this one, so many of the mods include using parts from the original bike (For example, the cowl cover was made from part of the original seat unit)

Love it - has a great used patina. I also really enjoy the adaptation of the original seat cowl - great to see this ad hocism/ invention.

It sounds like you're apologetic about that. Don't be! I think that it's much more in the original spirit of the cafe racer to make and adapt, than to buy and bolt on. Looks good, sir!

Its bare metal. The blue is the original paint. Used some cheap white pinstriping tape from autozone to clean up the transition.

When I was a kid some of my friends would try to put motorcycle seats on their minibikes. Now people are putting minibike seats on their motorcycles. I think some of these seats are right of a Rupp or Bandit?
