« on: February 20, 2019, 06:36:03 PM »
I am selling my Pride and Joy because I Have a baby on the way.

-Rebuilt Engine with new gaskets and seals.
-New Bosch Fuel pump, filter, and Line.
-New Bosch Injectors.
-New NGK spark Plugs.
-Re-Wrapped all electrical wires.
-New Fuse Box.
-New Air Filter.
-Custom Corbin seat with cinnamon leather.
-Atlantic Metallic Blue Tank (BMW individual color).
-New brake pads.
-Venhill brake lines.
-New Shinkos 705s tires.
-New handlebar buttons.
-HID with angel eye Headlight.
-completely restored Throttle body.

I put more than 8 month of work into this project. Bike runs like a dream, very aggressive, stylish, and turn heads.

Please contact me if you are interested, I have a Clean Texas Title under my name.

I am asking $7,500 for the bike.

Located in Arlington, Texas.

Thank you,

Is it always aggressive, or does it warm up to you?

Hello,
I still have the stock Cluster (Lunch Box), I am currently running the bike with no Tack and Gauges because "Cafe Racer" Haha, but at some Point I installed the old Lunch Box next to the Maf Sensor and it looked very retro and nice!

I still have the original seat untouched, the seat that currently is installed on it was another seat I bought off ebay and I cut it up and reupholstered it.

Unfortunately I don't have the rear loop since I threw it away along with the other Fairing I removed, I only have the front and rear Wheel Fenders.

I will consider all offers, this was a project bike that I never intended to sell and never placed a price for.

greetings...

Most of the time its really aggressive, specially the fist 15 minutes of ridding after warm up, it back fires a lot and the exhaust gargle and pop in a very aggressive and cool way. but usually after like 15-20 minutes of ridding it smooth out but still had the deep and aggressive sounds.

Is it always aggressive, or does it warm up to you?

I am no CAFE expert, but you should fix the front brake lines in a more permanent/rigid way. It seems to me a disaster waiting to happen; those flex lines might catch on the knobby tire in a sudden pothole or rough terrain.

It surprises me that so many café builds leave the fairing tabs below the tank (especially if repainted.) It's like a pimple on Christy Brinkley, still pleasant to look at overall, but the blemish messes up the canvas. GLWS

Ditto.  The stock tank just works better with a fairing, but changing the tank involves much more than a sawzall and a 6 pack.  The carbon fiber brain is an interesting touch.  Sorry, price is crazy high.

Better than that.  I’d say closer to a third the usual price when you factor in the cost of the new spark plugs, new air filter, re-wrapped wiring, new brake pads, the Shinko knobbers, etc.   I don’t know if a fella could buy the pieces for twice what he’s asking.

What's that thing about to fall from the top of the crankcase cover onto the pavement—a tissue dispenser? It needs a lanyard.

To be fair, I do like the horn and rear hub cover, nicely done.
I'll wait for Blue to start the bidding at "actual market value."

Please guys, for the love of God, delete the reference to removing the tabs from the tank. 

Those tabs make the cafe/scrambler hack jobs salvageable for usable tanks to restore another brick somewhere down the road.  Removing them makes the tank scrap metal. 

The best approach is to paint them black to match the engine stuff below the tank.  That is easily reversible if the tank is to be used on a stock bike.

Just stick a bolt in it. That’s what my dad always did with “extra” holes in sheet metal.
Oh what a shame he missed the cafe craze.   I never thought about that.  After seeing what he did with Chrysler K cars, ooo-wee the art he could’ve created.

Bruce didn't accept a part-way job ... and look how HOT Kaitlyn Jenner is now. Besides, most of these café scoots are destined to garage dry-rot, or nasty Boy George slide-outs on Hollywood and Vine asphalt. Forgive the Builder, he knows not what he does.

That is a good point.   That hub cover is truly yoo neek.  And we all know that all cafes are nothing if not yoo neek.

You’re right!  Even the front brake lines look similar.   

They are so alike, they must both be CafeYooNeek.
