This is my lovely Bandit 650 that I ride all the time, as much as I can. Its my only form of transport (apart from the RXS100, my back-up bike and cafe project) and I'm hoping the lovely heated grips will mean riding in -8 temps and below this year will mean I won't have to stop to warm my hands on engines every 10 miles!



This next one is my RXS100 which is currently being renovated by me and then I plan to turn it into a beautiful butterfl...er...I mean cafe racer:



Have so far made the carb work properly without leaking and got it through an MOT without any advisories. Am learning about bike mechanics with this and plan to strip it to its component bits and replace all the worn seals, gaskets and other worn/tired old parts. It will be a bit of a money pit but I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying doing it. Very relaxing.

Just finished building this Mk3 Golf Cabrio for my wife as a wedding present. Heres what I started with-



Bog standard 1998 Golf Cabrio with the worst navy interior you could imagine, so out the whole lot came, including the dash. Fitted a dash from a Mk4 Golf and got all the switches and controls working, and fitted a set of Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV seats. Covered the top half of the interior with red leather. Also fitted a VW Vento bonnet, lights and grill, lowered it on coilovers, and mounted it on Porsche Design90 wheels. That was the very short version of the build, we all know its never that easy, but here's what I ended up with-







Now its time for me to have my bit of fun and start that Cafe project I've always promised myself!

No current projects (although I'd love to have a shot at building a Cafe Racer or owning another Grey Import factory Caff).

My T509 (it is a "proper" T509, not the mistaken identity, later 955i, even though it has 955i bodywork):


Yes, another Hinkley Triple fan.

Working on a new cafe racer which I don't have room to do yet but building a new garage soon. I don't have any pictures of the 1981 CB750K because I have them holding it at the shop because I have no where to store it.

But the following are my other methods of transport that I swap back and forth riding and driving.

2005 Yamha Roadstar Midnight Silverado


2001 BMW K1200RS


2007 Nissan Maxima


Thanks

Okay here is the next project my 1981CB750K soon to be cafe racer. Hope to have a new garage built soon and have somewhere to take it apart.
Already have a local guy that builds race engines to do the upgrade on the engine.
I already have a CB900C front end my Cafe Seat and the mag wheels from a CB750C.

this is by old basket case before i started to rip it apart.


this is the daily work van.


and this is the other old workvan that became the other weekend distraction.


and as expected, none of them are finished yet.

will be concentrating on the bike first though for the summer.
