It's had loop reduction surgery performed already. The owner has considerately left more target for chopping; however, I think the whole package looks just right as it is.

I just came up with a name for a custom moto shopóThe Daily Grind. Use it at will. No rights reserved.

More like a K-Chopper than a K-Kafe from the look of the handlebar.

Under the circumstances, I think choppee works as a tag. :giggles

Looks like it already found a nice spot out behind the shed.

Anyone want to do an over/under on how long before it shows up here with a new owner using up bandwidth with photos and asking questions about hooking up an Asswell?

Wow, the Phyllis Diller of Bricks. Probably has a good heart, and will run forever. :)

Judging from the photos, it's been savaged by a clueless wannabe hipster.  The brake system has been removed and put on the bench, the harness looks like a party girl's hair after a tough weekend, and the photos hint that the engine systems have not escaped "improvement".  Anything small enough to fit in a shoe box has probably been lost.

Might make an okay parts bike.  Maybe...

Gotta love the cafe craze.

It's still available and is down to $400 (firm) now. Maybe bricks aren't that sought after with the cafe craze.  :dunno2:

Sounds like a candidate for a fly and ride.  Glad I don't have room in the garage.
