Hello to everyone with (hopefully) more experience then me =D

Post  blackdice on Tue 15 Mar - 19:52

I am new to this forum because I've finally decided to build me a café racer! YESSSS!!! Very Happy
So, in surch of good tips and offcourse the knowledge and experience from you die hards, my best option
was to get registered on a good forum with some great builders on it

I'm a 30 year old car/bike mechanic who has been driving a Yamaha R6 for a few years and who has
bought himself a '76 CB550k...

I'm from Antwerp, Belgium and want to build a vintage looking café racer with a few modern parts to upgrade
the handling and the braking. Tuning up the engine is not a priority to me because it has to be a cruiser...

I hope to get some good tips from you guys and offcourse I will do my best to be a part of this forum in any
way that I'm able to help!

The projects name will be.....Blackdice
and pics of the bike I bought will be posted asap

greetz Very Happy Very Happy

Hi Blackdice.

welcome here. I am new too (not in really life, only in this forum)A "small" Four is a good base. With little work on frame/suspension like needle bearings for swingarm, taper roller bearings for the front fork, Koni shocks, progressive springs, double disc brake etc. you think you ride a "new" bike.

I bought the bike but it's not yet in my possession and so I am looking for parts, prices, shops, advice and
info about the bike...

that's all I can do for now =)

So if you have any advice for me, I'll take it =)
