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.

81 CB900c project in Virginia Beach

Hello all,
I’m new to the site but not to fabrication. Thought I would share what I have been working on, it is an 81 CB900C. I do understand that it’s a heavier bike and harder to modify. I have had the bike for some time and I wanted to do something different so I got inspiration from the café world. This is what I started with.

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 …
