Cafe project

I Must be crazy but what the hell.

Got enough parts kicking about to put another bike together so it seems a shame not to. Going down the cafe route this time.

John Larrs has a lot to answer for. It was his gorgeous machine that set me off down this route

81 RS Frame


1000 RS Engine


Forks


Tank


Hubs and RS Bevel box


Should keep me busy for a while.

Cafe build

Good Therapy, but find a new owner BEFFORE you complete it ,as building a cafe is more satisfying than riding it.

It's only 7ft by 15ft. I want one of those enormous American garages that you all seem to have. Bigger than most houses over here.

The gold tank has rotted through underneath. I just can't bring myself to throw it away. I'm sure at some point in the future it'll be cost effective to repair it.
