You can call it whatever you like.

That is exactly how it started. Nice looking ride.

I really struggle with that vincent though. I guess if a Vinny is too far gone to fully restore, making a mod like that is ok. But it still doesn't seem right.

Yes it was, then I brought it to the Mods and Rockers show downtown Kansas City.
They all thought it was a cafe racer.
Of course I had a black X on the headlight, that must have fooled them.
But how did I know I should have told them different?

I really love the set-up of the Sport1000S, the gas tank, seat and seat cover. Trying to make my CX650 looks like that

Flat black? Check.
Clubmans? Check
No front fender? Check.

Yep, it's a cafe racer.

You're probably just confused because it's not a CB350 with the frame cut off at the shock mounts, and there are no checkerboard or "59" graphics on it.[/sarcasm]

Seriously though I've got no issues with it being called a cafe racer, it's more "cafe" than half the stuff I see labeled that way. The term is pretty meaningless at this point anyway. Just like "bobber", "restored", "NOS", "original", etc...
