Hello from Finland!

Post  ton-upkid on Sat 2 Oct - 0:00

I've been into this cafe racer-thing 'bout 25 years. My first 2 bikes hasn't actually nothin' to do with cafe racers, but had always wanted to get one.
1st was AJS 500cc -52, 2nd Ariel VB 600cc -52 also, but now i got Norton 650 SS -67 cafe racer with lot's of alloy Wink (bought it early 90's). I've been restorin' it about 1,5 months now, gonna paint the frame etc. Just now i'm makin' alloy racing type seat (pretty noisy work =) & gonna make mudguards too, sure it takes bit time but it's gonna be a long winter here.

Also i've been into 50's rock'n'roll scene since -76 and i had my 1st rockin' band on -78. Right now i got band called "rockin' 8-BALLS".


Ok, i think that's enuff of myself or maybe bit too much ? =/
