Nice bike, Norzilla.
Just one thing: it would be cool if you could introduce yourself (under: "New members: Start here"), because we don't know who you are...

Taimoshan finished pics

Post  norzilla on Fri 20 Aug - 21:31

Hello to all those people following my Taimoshan build, well i have finally got around to getting some good photos of the finished bike and building a small website showing the build and a few other builds that I have on the go.

Also want to thank everyone for there interest as Taimoshan was picked up of 3 biking mags in 3 countries, 100% Biker mag in the UK in the current Sept issue, I have the cover of the current Cafe racer mag in the USA, www.caferacermag.com and Cafe Racer mag in Spain. I have also had a number of enquiries to produce the core components as a kit which I am now putting together along with a price list soon to be available on the site.

you can now go to www.taimoshancycleworks.com

I will also add some more photos here for you to enjoy.

Also you might want to take a look at the next bike that I built the "Llandough Flyer" which is a 1976 Ducati bevel drive cafe racer

Thanks again
John Pellew
