    I will be building a cafe racer sometime next year from either a honda CB or suzuki GS.
    R65 = 650cc
    R90 = 900cc, the bike is also a bit larger.

    I'll be going for an R65 due to the fact they are LAMS approved and I want to build a small, nimble cafe racer; not a crazy fast one.

    Awesome video. Will watch again.

    Just had a look on ebay, damn they're not as expensive as I thought! Not a fan of bmw boxers though, don't know why I just don't.
    For cafe bikes there are two roads to go through: japanese and european.
    Euro is cooler as there's so much history to everything, I love hearing all of the old bike dudes talk shit at swapmeets and etc. It's also mighty expensive because parts are getting rare these days.
    Jap is cheap as and plentiful.

    That bike is awesome. Looks good and sounds better. I'm a big fan of Suzuki and Kawasaki.

    I'd say that these days, most older bikes are going to be expensive whether Euro or JDM. Part of the reason I'm so drawn to the BMW's for a Cafe Race project is the uniqueness. Not many bikes around use a drive shaft rather than a chain.

    Yeah, I'm not sure with the driveshaft idea. Apparently it did odd things to the handling characteristics of the bikes but people liked it?
    Friend's dad has a suzuki GS850 he might part with. I'd have to work it a lot to get it how i want it but it'd be cheap and would go SO hard.
    Screw LAMS, I'll just put 550 build tags on. She'll be right.
    Sorry to clutter your thread... Cafe racers are so so awesome though!

    That is certainly one way around it, I guess. Police are probably too stupid to realize.
