    Unfortunately, sadly, hopefully not regretfully, I'm selling my XS400. Its been an AMAZING learning experience, loads of fun, and I really hope to get another someday. For now, its taking up too much room in the old garage. Plus, I have a lot of other things on my plate (DR250! yaaaa! Also...

    If you think about it, what even is a cafe racer? A fun, fast, light motorcycle for ripping around the city? Thats what this is going to be. Its gunna get lowered a little, but I wanted to start with a platform that would sit higher because I'm too tall for those little old japanese bikes...
