You do an excellent job! All parts look very nice and clean!
Especially the details like the extensions for the stock rear-

The pipes are supposed to be swept more under the engine, I think!?

Turns out a very pretty bike, I like the colorscheme! Very Happy

Concerning TT-bikes: to me, TT is some kind of dirttrack-racing but
with also righthand corners and jumps. An early kind of supermoto
racing perhaps. TT-bikes look like flattrackers but do have frontbrakes.
Little can be found in the www about TT racing...

Of course TT is also the famous tourist trophy on the Isle of Man,
but as far as I know the participating bikes are just called road racers
or race bikes or so...


Best regards and good luck!
Sven

Thank you Sven, yes the pipes should be swept under the engine. I was hoping to use the centre stand, i think i will try to build one that fits.
I hate to say it but i like the flattrackers more and more...... Wink but old racers are still my favourite ...

Nice parts

Post  janh on Thu 23 Dec - 21:23

Hi Morten, I love the bike and especially the upper inspiration bike. I used to have a Suzuki T500 long time ago. I like the 2 stroke bikes. You've bought really good parts for the caferacer build. It should be a great looking caferacer when its finished. Hope you will keep us up to date with photo's? Good luck, Jan.
