I don't see any turn signals? Fenders? Gauges? The muffler looks like stock with the center cut out? Where does the licence plate mount? Brake light? I don't see much value in this build.

Told you it’s yoo-neek.

I’m sure it’s been snapped up by now anyway.  Probably a big fight in the driveway over it that made the news. 
After all, the tank is Atlantic Blue.

 I dug throught my build photos but unfortunatly I didn't have any pics for the spline, when I opened it up it was in a good condition, I just added Lube on it, I used the bmw brand one when I go home I will take a pic of the lube.

and BTW I dropped the price to $6,500 on it. I am trying to find a quick sale.


greetings...

i have to see spline photos before i can invest that kinda cabbage... poast up your spline photos...

man the bike all together costed me $5K and I spent 8 month working on it, I think what I am asking is a fair price.
I know a guy in arizon that flip cafe racer K100s for $11K and $12K each. Now I know his bikes is a way better quality than mine but still.

The damn handlebar buttons were $250 for each side haha. restoration is not cheap!

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.

I cut on side, and left the other side, I was going to mount the key ignition on it somehow but ended up putting the key ignition in the Fuse Box on the right side, and never got around on cutting it after that, if the buyer request the tab to be cut before purchasing I will gladly do it, its a 5 min job.

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

I have turn signals integrated with the tail lights under the seat, no fenders, no gauges, and yes the muffler is the stuck muffler cut, I have a license plate holder on the right side of the bike attached to the wheel. Honestly when I built that bike I built it to the way I want it to be, to look like exactly what I liked, but I have a baby on the way now and my wife is forcing me to sell my toys to be able to afford a family SUV. if this doesnt sell I would gladly keep it.

I don't see any turn signals? Fenders? Gauges? The muffler looks like stock with the center cut out? Where does the licence plate mount? Brake light? I don't see much value in this build.

Consider this post for a moment. Of course if jackalopes had been chewing on yours, prakash's method wouldn't apply.

It's pretty much impossible to get out of a bike what you put into it,  unless your name is Walt Siegl.

You MUST cut the fairing tab holes off the tank. It's the easiest job on a cafe modification. I cut mine out with a jig saw on my low-budget Cafe Rat.
