Yamaha XS 750 caferacer

Post  Hank on Sat 19 Dec - 2:05


Hallo I'm Hank from Lisserbroek a small village in Holland. I'm no computer hero and very bussy building bikes. From the start of this project on ( august 2009 ) I tried to make time to get in this forum, with other fantastic bikes. But I was to bussy. Now my second cafe racer is almost finished , it's a very basic "kickstart "bike. Soon I'll start my next project based on a Magni frame with a Honda 900 Bol d'Or engine. I will try to show you the building of my next project in this forum.

Yamaha XS 750 and Magni Bol d'Or

Post  Hank on Fri 25 Dec - 15:39

Hallo Alazzurra
I will keep the Magni parts original.
Hank.
My first cafe racer projekt is a Benelli 654. It was scrap and the engine was incompleet. I rebuild it with a crankshaft, cylinders, cylinderhead and carburators of a Honda CB 650. The siamese exhaust system is homemade with Norton pipes. The bike is quick and running very well.
What do you think of it?
Ik like your Alazzurra, nice tank-seat combination, and a very clean bike!

Yamaha XS 750

Post  Hank on Thu 8 Apr - 9:55

Thanks Sven, the idea was to keep it as simple as possible, even no electric start. It's a nice bike to ride, with the three cylinder you can drive slowly if you want ( without shaking your tooth out ) and you can drive fast enough to recive a ( not so ) nice speed ticket.
I think that's the idea of a cafe racer, keep it simple !

Here are some new pictures of my Hanx Triple.
This year I will make some changes. A new engine with a startermotor. I can place the battery of a Yamaha Diversion under the seat. Maybe also some colorchanges and a 18 inch frontwheel. When I'm gonna change the bike I will place it on "show us your project",

Hank,

Who needs a starter motor and what's wrong whith your engine?
Nice to see you still have the XS750.
Is it because nobody wants it or you can't miss the thing Very Happy
Your Magni Honda may look better but won't drive better.

Post  Hank on Mon 17 Oct - 0:05

Who needs a startmotor? I did last time . My last ride I forgot my contact-switch, result, almost empty battery. Still try to start the engine......hopeless.
Luckely a garage in the naberhood,with start-booster, but next day, a stiff leg !!!!
I'm planning to make a battery-holder under the rear bridge ( I'll use the points of the central stand ). Its than stil out of site and make it possible to use a bigger battery and starter-motor again!!!!!!!!
The bike is running well, further on.
I was at the cafe-racer day at Achterveld this summer, but had to leave early for my job, I've seen a lot of nice bikes, especially the Velocette Venoms

Then there is that oh-so-fun "stalled it as the light turned green." Boy the people behind you just don't understand why it takes so long to get going again, do they?

My KZ750 twin will retain its starter, and if I could figure a good way to convert my old Bonnie to electric start, I'd do that too! affraid

Shiny Side Up!
