You did a nice job there Cool

Maybe it's possible to relocate (is thiis proper English ?) the wiring , maybe you can put all the wiring include the battery in the back of the seat , it will look much cleaner that way Wink

About the tank , there is a movie on youtube about a guy who make a caferacer tank from an ordinary tank , just by smahing (gentle) dents in the left and right side of the tank , looks great Wink

Carpy did it like this as well : http://www.cb750cafe.com/ Cool

I already relocated the electrics to fit in the triangular Very Happy
Made a entirely new wiringloom for that.
Wanted to keep the seat free of electric for storage of tools, mobile phone etc.
Otherwise that would be very nice indeed.

I shall sleep on it for some nights.

@scheffers: 3D drawing looks great. To turn it into someting real is a little bit harder I found out

Well, they arn't real knee-indents, just a smashed in tank. Every hillbilly with a hammer can smash a dent in a gastank
It dusn't make more space and it just looks stupid, and disfuctional.
This is my opinion, and everybody his own Wink

and for carpy, well, even god makes mistakes! Very Happy

I will just wait with the tank and see what Marc does to it

didn't do much work to the bike. More riding it Very Happy
On the highway it is very difficult to ride without a mirror, so after searching some nice one (and not so expensive) i found this one.
What do you guys think?

Thanks guys!! Mirror is a big succes.

But my numberplate isn't... got a ticket this morning of 90 euro.
My numberplate was mounted to horizontally.
I can't bend it more downwards because of my rear tire.
Has anybody ideas??
Was thinking about mounting it upwards, but that is not very cool looking offcourse.....

Luckely the police didn't make a problem of the indicators missing. For this time is was okey

i hade the same problem. After mounting the cafe racer seat, there wasn't any room left to mount the plate correctecly.
This problem i solved by making a kind of sub frame that runs along the inside of the seat. I welded it to the frame. The other end is runnig underneath the rear light. By this it looks like the plate is floating behind the bike.

indeed a very good job!!

The only problem is that my seat don't sit that far back over the rear tire.
The easiest way to change the plate is upwards to my idea. Going to change it one off these days.
Each day i check my mirror for cops Very Happy Thats got to end!

i placed my seat a bit back to compensate the space. Now with this construction i don't have to worry about 5-0.

That was indeed a better idea for my bike to.
Tomorrow I wil change the number plate. Hope it don't look very foolish Very Happy

I've got a other break pump with external resevoir. Hopefully also fitting in tomorrow.
Was planning to remove all the other stuff for the original break unit. Was very ugly with all those levers etc.
it would be nice if everything is finished for 'Achterveld' sunday

I mounted the plate now upwards. Shall post some pictures soon.
Today i will make another batteryholder. I used a scooter accu for a while, but it had to little capacity so I couldn't use the elektrical starter.
I'm tirred off all the kicking so I will put my old battery back in.

Bad quality pics, but it will do. Put back in the old battery, but put the connectors and fusebox trough the box.
This way I have easy acces to the battery and to replace a fuse.

Tomorrow I will order a new set of HAGON shocks.
The will be 3 cm longer than the original of possible.

BUT, I have a question to you all: black or chrome springs?

It depends on the colour of the bike.
If there are more chrome details (steer, fenders etc.) use chrome if there isn“t: Black is beautyfull.

I also have the same problem placing the numberplate. I think the way I mounted it will not lead to copproblems. (I hope )
