Honda CG125
Tue Nov 19, 2013 12:37 pm by mikewirral
Hi All
Said hello in the 'introduce yourself ' section recently.
At the tender age of 63 I have just started my first cafe racer project !
Used to work on cars and bikes when I was young but not done anything for 30 years !
Decided on a CG125 as its a nice simple bike but the build will get me 'up to speed' on all the techniques of a bike restoration and conversion at a small scale - the next …

New project!
Tue May 13, 2014 5:00 am by pauliexjr
Well, finally done it. After 12 months 'dabbling; at being self-employed and not getting too far with it I finally started a new job on 1st May and to celebrate went out and blew a whole 350 quid on my next project.

For anyone who can't tell it's a 1980 CB750K with just 18k on the clock. It comes with a V5,2 keys …

Abracadabra - for my next trick, I will be changing a pig of a motorcycle into a rather stylish little cafe racer.........................hopefully.

The bike is a D reg 1987 1 owner bike with 17k miles on it. The previous owner bought another …

Kawasaki gt 550
Mon Sep 01, 2014 3:54 pm by 184sean
Just started stripping down a gt 550 to convert into a cafe racer as i loved the shape of the tank, but sadly i have already hit a snag.
Has any one stripped down the front forks on one of these before, as i cannot seem to get the top plug undone.
According to the manual you use an allen key but it just wont move, tried heating it up but no joy.
Its a G9 model 1997.
Any help would be much …

My Vietnamese 'Cafe' Adventure & converting a 1987 Honda H100 s to a Racer
Sat Aug 02, 2014 1:26 pm by gregsmith84
It broke my heart the day I sold my beloved Honda Win to the Vietnamese "Cafe" owner for $60.
I bought the bike purely by chance in Saigon for 4,500,000 Vietnamese Dong ($200 USD) and I thought about importing her back to the UK but would just have worked out too expensive.

I'd started in Hoh Chi Min city in the south and rode the bike for 2.5weeks 700ish miles north, through jungles, …

2001 Honda CG125
Mon Jul 28, 2014 7:19 pm by twade76
Thought I'd start a topic on my current build.

The guy I bought it off has made a really good start on it, there are just a few jobs I've got planned.

First off is the fuel tank, the bike has a bit of crash damage from a previous life, the tank was leaking so I've bought a replacement one.  It's from a different model and is a …
