PostSubject: My first cafe racer build "Amphitrite"   Sun Jan 13, 2013 11:25 am

Hi guys, just starting my first cafe racer build, been building chops and bobbers for many years now and have now decided to have a go at building a cafe racer.

trying to build it on as lower budget as possible, going to be using parts i have in my shed and other bits a can scrounge off people Wink

i shall be using a 1979 Z400 frame i picked up for FREE the other day Smile
(minus the tank and seat)

and i shall be stripping one of my chop projects for the engine and rolling gear

My plan is (if it will fit) is to use a bandit 600 engine, cbr600f3 forks and wheels, a cb400 superdream tank (have one sat in the shed). i'll make the seat unit, wiring lum and link pipe for the exhaust.
I may have to locate a cbr600 swing arm as i'm unsure if the rear wheel will fit in the Z400 one.

i aim to get it built for 17th March for our local Charity Easter ride (Wirral Egg Run)

keep checking back for progress.

Good luck with the build, my sister does the Egg Run, she lives in Southport and rides a bright red VFR800 with a lowered seat (she's only 5' 1") she was in last year's video, about 2 minute 22 seconds in, complete with bunny ears on her helmet! Laughing

looks like its going to be a true bitsa

I may have a spare swinging arm or 2 kicking about i know i have a spare early blade one
& gsf 600 one as i tripped over them earlier today (going very cheap if any use)
your in the right place if you need any advice just ask
I will watch this build with interest
good luck
