Hello everyone !
My name is Gustavo and i am founder of Retrorides by Lourenço

In this e-book you can download all 3d plans available , as the rear suspension ! there is a tech tips too !and pics to help to build it !

Does it come with a saw blade for de-looping?
Spray paint to create photo background graffiti?
Are the covers made of plywood that can be used as the new seat?
If you follow a book, can a cafe truly be yoo-neek?

Maybe publishing a book is the only way to recoup the money spent on making a cafe.  I wouldn't encourage people to hack up perfectly good bikes, though.

How much for your Café Racer ?

I do not have trained eyes or skilled hands to make one like yours.  But I want it Gustavo ?

Will you make me one ?

What I need is a cafe dumpster book.  It would be so-o-o cool to have a yuneek dumpster I could take photos of in front of really nice K bikes.

Oi Gustavo,


I recently saw your post from May 2019 regarding your book "the Cafe Racer Bible". I love your work and your novel rear suspension. I'd like to know if the rear suspension linkage you've designed and detailed in your book/CAD drawings is suitable for use on a K75? I have a 1995 K75 that's the perfect (ugly) donor bike and would like to use your suspension approach in an upcoming build.


Also, if possible I'd like to know what geometry is included in the 3D plans you mentioned and if any of the CAD files work for a K75!


Thanks,


Russell

I have questions.
Can one be both radd and yoo-nook? 
Or only radd or only yoo-neek? 
Or yoo-neek but not radd? 
Or radd but not yoo-neek?
If they are both, then do they become something else?
Yoo-neekly radd?
Raddly yoo-neek?
Something else entirely?
How does this work?  Do I have to buy the book to find out?  Do I have to build one to find out?  Can I start cutting at one, let it sit behind the garage in the weeds, then give it away to the neighbor kid and still find out?   
I have questions. So many questions.  I don’t even like coffee.

Just hang on to your S.  In a few years when the cappuccino gang has hacked every other brick into identically yooneek super rad cafe bikes just having a stock brick will be the most radily yooneek ride.

Based on your assessment of yooneek super rad cafe bikes are/is the forecast for "S" brick collectibles value rising?

I manage to have a look at this, it's trash. Everything in there can be found on this forum. Even the plans for the suspension are a waste of time, no measurements, reference points guides for placement. don't waste your money.

Three posts up is my shocked face. 
OK, it’s Johnny’s shocked face, but mine is similar. 

A member of almost a year with only one post, which is trying to sell something, let us down?
