cafe racer pic
This is my CB550k and my sons CB500/4. I bought my bike from a wreckers and it looked like something out of MadMax, but I could see the potential and I had a vision in my head of what i wanted. The only thing that looked good was the motor it was pretty clean, everything else needed replacing painting or cleaning.
My sons bike( the purple one) was similar, thousands spent. But with money patience and help from an old school triumph mechanic I think these bikes are awesome and where I live there is nothing else like them.
NOW your talking...those are much better pics and thanks for the descriptions! Hope you're doing ok down under. We all know you Aussies are having some terrible weather right now. Good luck mate!!!
