So many great bikes it's hard to keep track!

One of my favourite builds has been the 'Big Bore Old Skool Cafe Road Racer'.

It's hand-built, it's from Oz, it's a hoot to ride!

My new nomination is for this beauty from kittykatjaz: http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=73414.msg885338#msg885338

Thanks Stroker Crazy for the nomination of Pirate Kitty, the Big Bore Old Skool Cafe Road Racer. I accept the nomination.

Pirate Kitty was originally a 73 CB100 which came to me as a basket case ex bucket racer. Lots of work over 7 months in which I learnt to bash and weld aluminium into motorcycle related shapes. Have done over 300 km's of absolute fun riding.

For those who have voted, recruit more voters!
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
