Nice idea H, it's a long way to go but The Mariner's in Mill Street, Drummore, Dumfries and Galloway http://www.qype.co.uk/place/1323049-Mariners-Coffee-Shop-Drummore is owned by Sean and Sandra, two bike nuts. Great place to stop if you're on your way down to the Mull and Sandra's cooking is excellent!

more a gathering than a cafe but poole quay on a tuesday night finds a couple of hundred bikes every week during the summer.

more tea tends to go down than anything else.

will pop some pics up when i finish work early enough to get down there.

Hi Harriet, got a couple of places for you to add to the map. Southport pier, really busy on Wednesday evenings and Saturday and Sunday days. Also Kirkby Lonsdale (devils bridge) very popular on the weekends.

PostSubject: CB400N Seat   Mon Jan 07, 2013 1:01 pm

Hi, I was looking at your great looking CB400N thru the forum last night. I am converting a CB450DX into a Cafe Racer which is very similar to the Super Dream models.
I am going to make a seat hump like you did for 400. I am going to use foam from an flower oasis as the mold but can you tell me the overall dimensions of the seat and how you joined the hump to the seat>
I was intending doing the same color scheme you did but opposite with the black and white.
I have got a pair of Motad exhausts from a VFR 750 and intend matching them up to the down pipes either buy purchasing a collection box ( expensive) or going for the straight through connection using extra pipping.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
Tom Smile

Hi Harriet, can you tell me if you have been told of any cafes on the North Nottingham/Lincolnshire border.
I am looking into opening one up in that area if I can get the financial backing and correct establishment etc which would be for all bikers but I would like mainly "Cafe racer" riders to use it.
Don,t know if it will happen but i will need all the info I can gather. scratch

Thanks
Soon be Spring, thank goodness
