Great pics , i've seen many of he's creations. But after a while i started to think why is this guy only making very expensive bikes for people who can throw away money like you throw away used toilet paper ???
Ive got respect for he's knowing but he's parts or so expensive and many of those 'gadgets' can be made for less money. At the other hand who doesnt want to get ''rich''.

Yep, it's true that his bikes don't come cheap, this is absolutely no "budget" business...!
It looks like it's his work, and not a hobby...
I much prefer to do everything myself : I would never want to buy a "ready made" cafe racer... Where would be the fun?
But I have to admit that Carpy's bikes are really awsome and impressive, really great!

Hi Zed - think about the guys with "two left hands" ! I know allot of my friends with that "handycap". They MUST buy a "ready to race" bike - `cause they don`t understand to work with tools.
I think we are not "normal" !
