How about a vid? This may be 205 but it's a sweet 205:

Stumbled across one in a clothing store in a mall in Braunschweig, Germany this past September. I believe it was going for 8500 Euros.

You'd have to be a midget to fit your knees into the cutouts on the tank. That seat doesn't leave much room. Looks like you'd be sitting on your balls.

Your balls fit into the open space at the rear of the fuel tank, plenty of room there.

Given a more sensible wheel/tire selection I could like this bike, but not with what's on there now.

I can't wait to post a picture of my bike when it's done, I think a few people are going to hate it. Here is a progress shot if you haven't seen it already...

I'm building something similar this winter. My creation, but using /2 conversion with a big tank. Fell in love with the big tank the moment I saw it. Check out Northern Cafe Racers on FB to follow my build. It's going to be "New Vintage."

Absolutely love what you guys did to the airheads.... Pity that here where I am in Singapore such old classics are not only hard to find, parts are rare to come by and when they do they cost a bomb.

I just gotten a R1100R oilhead but plans on customising it to a Cafe racer has to be put on hold as there are plenty of repair works to be done before I can think of beautifying it at all. But I'm keeping my eyes on this thread to get some inspiration on the customization.

I don't know where this bike should belong to "slash 2", "airhead cafe racer", "airhead scrambers", or "airhead dirt bike"?
