Have you noticed, with the exception of the guys in the States who post in their own time, the rest of us are a bunch of bloody insomniacs! You, Pud, me all posting after Midnight, what is wrong with us? And no, I don't do shifts or work nights, I got back at 7.30 last night from a 3-day trip round East Anglia and Kent, but still couldn't resist hitting the keys before wandering off to my pit!

I have noticed that now Paulie and we are posting again first thing in the morning. I am not a shift worker either (although I was for 25 years), I just don't seem to sleep all that much.

Hi Stidds,

Fantastic looking bike as said by several others, a real inspiration, so much so that it inspired me to go out and buy a 1976 CB500T.

I am having difficulty in finding a seat I like, they seem to be either to small or to long!! I wondered if you made a mould of yours and if you had any intention of making any for sale I for one would be interested in buying one from you as it looks perfect with the CB500T tank you have.

Cheers Jason (AKA KITPED) Wink

A quick update for you all, I was contacted on this site by Dutch who asked if I could submit some pictures and a write up to his excellent website www.thebikeshed.cc.

Well after a lot of hard work by Dutch he has now put an article on my bike up on his site.

http://thebikeshed.cc/2011/12/01/seans-first-cafe-build/


Many thanks to Dutch, he has really made all of the blood and swearing (yes there was loads of both) worth it.

Hey Sean.

The bike looks great. I hope to feature some more from this site (when there is room).

I've also just started an events calendar, so there's no reason for anyone to miss out on cafe/custom events like Rollerburn (2 weeks ago), or the Coupes Moto Legende.

Keep watching.
