    Turn signals not flashing

    I've almost completed my electrical installation, all the lights on my new speedo are working correctly & everything else has gone according to plan. The wiring harness is completely stock, the main change is the turn signals are new. I've read previously that the stock flasher units won't flash...

    What's first, clean the inside or paint strip the out side

    I'm going to have a go at the electrolysis method to clean the inside of my tank. I also need to paint strip the exterior ready for repainting.

    'Hamasaki' formerly known as the '82 KZ305 cafe racer - first build

    I never knew what a cafe racer was until about 3 weeks ago. I love they way they look so thought I'd have a crack at a new daily rider to replace my Vespa px 150. I don't even have the bike yet so my 'plan' is based on much internet research. As it's a first build & I will be developing & honing...

    Hello from New Zealand

    Hi, I'm about to embark on my first Cafe Racer project. I've bought a '82 Kawasaki KZ305csr belt drive. I'm not sure I'll get the ton out of it when it's finished but it should be solid enough for a first project. So far I'm really enjoying sinking myself into this project. I have the design...
