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 ?
