I have run mine out past the end of the swing arm on a twin shock bike and then down past the license plate on my Monolever. Anywhere else on my own bikes would oil the rear tire and the most of the back of the bike at speeds above about 90mph. Sorry about no pics.

I hooked my oil breather up to my velocity stacks, has been working fine for me for thousands of miles now.



You can just see the white hoses go from under the tank to the stacks. It wouldn't be too hard to do something similar with pods filters.

Thank you. Not my best shot though, but it does show the breather hoses pretty good.

Swapmeet.

You can also buy cheap (8 euros a piece) velocity stacks on Ebay.de, Germany. I would like to warn you for those, the mesh is clamped on by a rubber piece and will get sucked into your carbs.

I really need to get osme better shots of it one day.



Am I going blind or is this bike missing it's right caliper? I know that you cafe guys remove a lot of parts to get the 'right look' but this is simply ridiculous!

It is missing the right caliper in that photo.

I had just installed the lower fork sliders that I got from a fellow off of this website and did not have a master cylinder yet. Since then I've plumbed the master cylinder, but braking is still subpar. I am currently looking for a handlebar mounted cylinder.

Beautiful bike, but I personally do not think that comes anywhere close to a cafe. I will probably get flamed as an airhead noobie for making this comment, but polished valve covers, airbox, front cover, and a corbin cafe seat do not constitute a cafe. It is just a nice airhead with a non-stock seat. You still have the rear footpegs on it! Actually, you still have everything on it.

Doesn't mean I am not still jealous that you can run wire wheels.

I welcome any and all couch surfers if you are traveling through Augusta. I even have a well stocked garage for emergent repairs.

Are you kidding me?? that wacky cool fairing alone gives him the right to post his bike. There is a loose definition at best about what constitutes "cafe". You're begging to have that dumb animated video posted again by reintroducing that argument...

cool bike, I used to have polished bits.

Most definitely a cafe bike, but the cafe has to be more than 300 miles away!

Please do send a list of original parts that I should break off and shiny bits that I should scuff up. I was just looking to cafe the bike up a bit, not build a frankenbeemer. I've got a rockin original 1975 in excellent shape

Don't take him seriously bscarpenter. One man's cafe is another man's delicatessen; if we all did the same things to our bikes, there would only need to be two photos on this thread; on of the left side of the UCM (Universal Cafe Motorcycle) and one of the right side.
Keep the faith.
It's nice to see well cared for older bikes in any form.
Heads up!

No offense taken, I just thought it was funny because when I look at my bike, there isn't one thing that I would remove.... except the non-stock seat to put her back together for a two up ride. Cheers.
