Hey, a newbie myself been on here a few months now and I've learnt that any bike can be a good cafe racer! Basically whatever fits your budget and what you like the look of.

Any of the Z range would be a great base for cafe conversion. There are plenty of Z specialists to get your spares aswell.

Firstly welcome to the forum. The Z650 is a stonking piece of kit, redolent of the original British twins, T100, A10, Dommie, but with more grunt and without the reliability issues and the tendency to p*ss oil at every stop sign!

Go for it and post piccies as you go Very Happy

I can't post links yet but google

dotheton z650 cafe racer

Cool as no? Or...

z650 blue blitz

Not my cup of tea but each to their own...

Parts look reasonable from z power too.

Having bought a non-runner as my first build i would not recommend it! A runner may cost more to begin with however when costing parts for a rebuild, long term it will save you. A lot.

Best of luck,

S
