That some guy cobbled that together in the equipment shed with the turbo off an old combine harvester is pretty cool in my book. No urban pretense there. Pretty is as pretty does.

Let'er rip, indeed.

It really should have a metal bucket installed around the Air filter, as some kind of agricultural "ram air" Extra points if it's galvanized!

SNIP!
Thank you so much for saying that!

You just said something that I've been trying to get across in these threads for a long time. If one spends a little time on the net looking at real cafe racers, what you find are 99.9% full fender'd, dual seat, 1/2 worn out Brit bikes, being ridden by teens and twenties and usually with their girlfriends on the back.

In Europe and Britain youngsters built bikes for the same reason that kids in California built Hot Rods... To make noise, go fast and get laid and I gurantee that you ain't doin the latter, if you can't get the chick off her block!

I don't care that much for some of the rat bikes being posted right now. I'm more interested in seeing well built performance bikes that show us some craftsmanship and good engineering. The rest of it, you can have but why close the thread just because of MOIB? If he really wants the thread closed, all he has to do is not open it up.

But it's worth it to see some of the really good stuff... and the fifty shots of the garden variety Tritons and other "generic" cafe aren't all among them. Fact is I liked the 350 with the blue/white stripes a lot. It was what cafe was really about in the 70s. Low buck ride worked up to a cooler look. Not everyone had the money for a Triumph with the clubmans, much less a Triton. So seeing the budget builds is nice along with some of the oddball stuff too.

Grow a sense of humor and adventure. It makes life more fun.
I do catch your drift. I am just disappointed that this great thread turns into a troll-egoboost-I-need-attention thread.

Trolls that now also started to send very childish private messages. That kind of stuff temporarily suppresses my sense of humor.
