Thank you. They're stock and 6 years old, so I'm also looking to upgrade. Was thinking about getting those cheap RFY shocks and rebuilding them.Nice work, it looks really sharp. Did you put the rear shocks on? What kind are they and how do the feel? I'm working on my first build as well and don't want or have the budget to buy expensive shocks, but don't want crap either.
Had the bike up to 70mph with no issues yet, but it was a concern before then hahaGreat looking bike. Well done. Do you think the license plate bracket might start swaying side to side at speed as the wind hits it? If it gets rocking too much it could contact the rear tire.
Thank you! Been looking at exhaust systems for it. Looked into rearsets, but they'd get in the way of the kick start. Which, currently, is the only way the bike will start. Pretty sure the 6 year old battery isn't holding a charge.Just stumbled on this one - too much time self isolating !
First off congrats on producing a harmonious Cafe Racer with true 60's influences. Just shows what can be achieved with some imagination and will.
If it was mine ? ....... Swept back Goldie 'esque downpipe, rearsets and a TLS drum front brake to complete the 60,'s image.
What's your next project ?

Next project is my buddies 1980 KZ750 LTD Hardtail bobber.
Good way to stay in shape hahaThat was frequently an issue back in the day [ kickstarter ] - our solution was to ditch the kickstart and run and bump start / swing leg over as per the racers of the day !!
Oh, is that a KZ twin ??? Now that DOES have possibilities - I know !!
Can't say parts are easy to come by but a lot of CB/CG fit with little to no modification. I had a lot of fun learning on it and still have fun as a daily. Plus I figure if the engine quits on me, I'll swap in a 200.Better late than never lol. How has the bike been? This is a new brand to me and I just found one local for cheap...if I can get parts easy and cheap I may get it for the kids to learn on. Thanks!
