    OK, they haven't finished, yet, a work in progress, but I'm sure at least one person will shake their head at the pod filters on CV carbs. And I guess the cafe racer term has changed as the bike offerings have changed. Take the fairings off and you have 2 choices: put dirt bike bars on for street-fighter, or cut seat, tail and airbox for a cafe racer.

    Sorry but I just don’t understand how anyone thinks that looks good. The seat doesn’t match up to the tank at all, in fact it looks tacked on.
    Pod filters are just going to lead to an early failure on the engine as it will with run rich mid range or lean midrange and the crap that will go through the engine will mean an early rebuild anyway.
    The bike won’t be any faster, probably will be slower and handle like a bucket of bolts. But the owner will most
    Likely want a premium price because it is a “Cafe Racer”.

    Looks like it has slicks instead of the usual tractor tyres :thumb_ups::D

    500cc, roughly 90odd horsepower, not bad... just depends on the weight and how strong the gearbox is
