I like the exposed battery, '
very 'in your face'
I guess air cleaners are coming...
interesting you garbage bins are same as in oz...
small world...
I also practice to spray colour on them,
much to neighbours dis-like Wink

Today I did a lot. So almost finished.
And for the first time started the engine and I must say. GREAT SOUND.
My red XS750 is much louder then this one Donīt know why?
The airfilters make a great sound too.
The numberplate vibrates to much so I have to make a stiffer construction.
Did some cruising in the street and everything worked ok so far.

O yeah: an Union jack is no option on a Japanese bike. But a small Japanese navyflag could find a place on the battery somewhere.

Hi Kornfed - looks good, sounds good - your neighbours will love you - if you go for a ride on sunday 7.oo am. You do a great job - and this is the evidence - with less money a cool C- racer can build.
Respect! - no chance in German to get a license plate.

What a great idea. I would really like to ride sometimes whith other caferacers. Donīt know if there members around the south east of Noord Brabant whith the same idea?


Today I also mounted the frontdiscs from my other XS. They look better. And the front tire was leaking a bit. Went to the tireshop and had to buy a new one. The old Metzeler was from 1989. There wasnīt also a innertire inside. The man from the tireshop said that this kind of wheels really canīt use tubeless tires.
Now there is a brand new Bridgestone Battlax. Love the profile..[img] By kornfed, shot with FinePix A310 at 2009-07-09[/img]

Good sound!!

I have the same tires on my CB750. So far I don't have problems with them. Exhaust is kissing the ground, so plenty of grip Very Happy

Shit happens...
Today I went for a longer ride.
When I came home I noticed my numberplate fell off somewhere. pale
I drove the same route back on my other bike and....... after 25 km I found my plate back lying in the middle of the street just a little bit messed up.
Pure luck.

Itīs a difference whith the red XS. That one rides a more comfortable becauce of the tophalf and the thicker seat. But hey.. comfort isnīt everything.

Yep man its all about looks and a little about comfort when building up a cafe, thats not all true but ok.

I almost had the same problem like you Kornfed, my plate just broke off at a screw and was hangin on by a thin line.... now im holding it together with some steel wire...very professional as you can imagine

Btw , the last picture is great , it shows the whole line of the bike , it is very "aerodynamic" to me , lovely long stance.

Did a lot of work the last few days.
Mounted a new oilpressureswitch (had to disassemble the rightcarter)

Also mounted a deeper carterpan so the oil is better cooled.
spraypainted the carterparts matblack and also the exhaustpipes.
Mounted a electronic ignition.

And she is getting more beautyfull and relyable (I hope) by the day.
