The bike is 1975 vintage. It caused quite stir last Easter (2008) when I rode through the local village as people left Mass and stopped everyone in their tracks.

VERY LOUD !!!!!! The locals loved it and the childrens eyes nearly popped out.

The bar is at a place called Plouharnel on the Gulf of Morbihan, Brittany - it's near to the famous Carnac site (standing stones and alignments ).

Great little bar - discovered quite by accident. Full of memorabilia and a bright yellow BMW Cafe racer on display.

Heres some moody photos.



Thanks for the comments - you are a great bunch.

Three decals on the tank.

An Ace Cafe flag decal on top



Two others, one either side -

Tweetie Pie (the yellow canary in the cartoon series) is hiding on one side whilst

Sylvester, the cat, is on the other side of the tank looking for him.

Corny, but its the very yellow theme !

I will take a photo and post it up ASAP.

This makes me think that I still have to find some deco for my z650 side panels... I sanded and painted them again yesterday - a bit of Spring cleaning, let's say, I was also getting a bit fed up with the two racing flags... So now I gotta figure out what kinda deco I'm going to put scratch

I see what you mean, but when I said it was difficult to make a sticker out of it, I meant practically, to make it with sticker paper, out of vinyl...

I think it would be good for the Forum to have it's own Sticker...
I'm sure members would like to buy... and E-Bay etc
Allso good marketing for new members and their cool bikes...
And so maybe some printer just needs to quote on say 100 each Sm & lg (with promise of more:)
Who finances can keep some profit...
maybe cool members from different countries can get quote..
I will ask my local printer as well...
Is the image copyrighted..??
Just do it... cyclops
I will order a couple... cheers

I looked into getting stickers made for a bike club I'm in a few years ago. I'll look into it again if you like.

That sounds like a good idea. We could check out how much it would cost to make some stickers for the forum - not as a decoration for my kawa but just for all members. I have absolutely no idea how much this may cost...

Anyway, I think we should move this question to "Members' columns" because this has nothing to do anymore with Tancred's CB750...

@Luckyboy: no, there's no copyright on this logo. That's why I used it on the t-shirts too.

I am in a bike Club http://www.bikeclubfrance.com/ and they have had stickers and T shirts made.

Most decent printers will do the stickers, maybe even Vistaprint. A friendly T shirt guy should knock them out at about 8 Euros incl the cost of the shirt if you can provide the artwork in a high density digital format (small pics blown up for T shirts never look right - too grainy).

Hi Tancred, nice ride - sure, sound will be more than good music. It´s anytime the same - good spots are so fare away. I look on map24 to "Plouharnel" . Fu..shit it`s near 1400km away from my home. To long for a coffee. This is your "only" bike??
