My girl and I are also interested in old bikes...'70's and early '80's Japanese bikes, cafe racers, old Triumphs and Nortons, English twins, etc. Old CB's and KZ's.
Anyone have any cool pics of cool bikes? Flat tanks and flat seats are cool!

Well, here's a paintshop of the '79 CX500-based TRIKE I'll be building after I get the SuperPhaeton on the road:

Update: The rear fenders will be from a Beetle.

this is mine, it's a 77 cb5504-k i got it ransformed to a cafee racer wih clubmans and a mac 4-1 exaust. I still would like to change the seat, make it a single seat with a hard cover at the rear, lose the grab bar change the indicaters and lower the front just a touch. this thing is awesome to ide, very comfortable. I aso just got rid of a 66 suzuki t-20 2 stroke tc 250, and my friend got a 63 honda silver wing 80cc. some guy just gav it to him :Idunno:

ayway, here's the 550

here's my vespa.

i've got a bone stock 72 honda cb500 too, but i gotta do some work to it before it runs.

scott s November 7th, 2005 01:32 PM

Aircooled, that bike is SWEET! That's exactly what we're looking for. Preferably something 600cc or smaller. wouldn't want to sell yours would you?

vwuberalles November 7th, 2005 01:38 PM

it's been my dad's since i was a little kid & he gave it to me so i'd kinda like to hang onto it but i dunno i might be inclined to if the offer was right. it needs some fuel system work, it sat with gas in the tank that went bad.

i found a pic of it.

it's in his garage actually, near raleigh nc.

About the coolest Cafe I've seen:

scott s November 7th, 2005 02:25 PM

Hmm, wwe're not too far from Raleigh. Wonder what it would take to get that bike adopted by a couple of cool enthusiasts who would get it back on the road?

StinkEye November 7th, 2005 02:56 PM

only to then sell it for a song to a broke bastard a few miles south. Hmmm... :funny:

Alloy wheels? Not very cafe to me.

StinkEye November 7th, 2005 03:46 PM

Well, I may not be one to ask what the cafe 'rules' are. As far as I'm concerned, looking the way it does, it could have plastic wheels and I'd still call it a cafe.

Very cool. That's exactly what I'm talking about.

scott s November 7th, 2005 06:37 PM

Very cool jroy. I wish we could find something like that close to home. There's just something about the style of these bikes posted here. They're what I think of when I remember motorcycles...not a crotch rocket or a chromed out Harley.

Here is a pic of my 84 Goldwing, still got a few things left to finish, but I got to legally ride it last weekend.

This thing originally was an Aspencade. :sawzall:

p-nor November 7th, 2005 07:04 PM

here's mine. it's a '73 cb750. cafe baby!!


vwcalbug November 7th, 2005 07:51 PM

what kind of condition are you looking to buy one?? Might have a lead on one that needs a good amount of work, but will be super cheap -JustinD

That is too cool man. I've always wondered what it would look like if someone took all th e fairing off a Goldwing and cleaned ut up. Great work!

scott s November 8th, 2005 03:20 AM

vwcalbug, where are you (and the bike) located? What make/model? What constitutes "a little work"? Price? Send more info and pics if possible.

StinkEye November 8th, 2005 03:25 AM

Scott, ya just missed this one (bit of a drive involved)

I've driven to Ohio for stupider reasons:

Think this is in charlotte. Not as easy to cafe:

(yeah, I've been keeping an eye out too.... broke though)
