5 MINUTE FIX
talking about the back brakes got me thinking again how to make the back drum better on the older aces with out too much fuss.

Ive managed to find a honda fuel cap that fits the bike, took a few weeks of searching part numbers and measuring sizes etc until i found "the one"..
the magic number for the non locking fuel cap is
surprisingly it isnt actually listed for the honda CG models

After a few frustrating goes to take the side covers off without snapping the tabs off while working on the bike I figured it was about time i made a permanent fix in stead of grease and a blunt screw driver.

Well i noticed this week that my low beam, park light and speedo light were all out at the same time, i was dreading having to trouble shoot bad wiring but when i stuck the multimeter on it all was fine with no shorts and power to all the sockets. i chucked some new globes in and they all work...

this motorcycle helmet is coming out as a consumer helmet first in about 8months or so so the money raised can fund a "Robocop" police helmet from the future, this is cool !! and its an aussie design, i know its not really cafe, but man its cool ..

I follow a few Indonesian cafe racer groups on facebook and am blown away by the
workmanship this guy does with a lot less tools and CNC machines then we have access to. he makes V twin and W motors from honda CB parts.
