Got a call from Jimmy who wanted us to build him a schmick arse cafe racer like the two below...
We started the hunt for a suitable bike and found a CB500 at a good price. I loved it the moment I saw it, even though it looked fairly rough and had a bit of (dodgy) work done to it already, it had character. Upon closer inspection, the bike had a lot of idiosyncrasies that would suit a different style, namely street tracker. The swingarm was much longer than stock, the engine fins were damaged, air filter was cool and would suit tracker style better and the exhaust was a 4 into 1 that looked very cool.
Fortunately Jimmy's budget for the Cafe Racer was unrealistic so we had a meeting in the garage to discuss our Street Tracker proposal. Jimmy loved th idea and has basically allowed us alot of creative freedom.
I'll post a "before" pic when I can find it but until then here are a couple of pics where we are at the moment.
Oh yeh, the name Gunda
, where did that come from?
Jimmy says "Gunda
" is a Hindi word for a villan (ganster, bad guy, criminal) in a bollywood video...
