Re: Cafe Racer love (dj_wawa)

My own project. Still waitin for a seat cover to be made.





A kawi 750 triple cafe racer I also own. (Yeah, I know it says KH500 on the sidecover, but it has a '74 H2 motor shoehorned in.)

Re: Cafe Racer love (2 Strokes Forever)

Actually, the bodywork is off of my '76 KH 500. The tins that came with the bike were painted flat black, and I am in the process of painting them Kawi Green.

It sounds great with the Factory Pipes, but they are loud as hell. People complain. People I ride with.

Get new friends
Personally I'd add some extra premix before riding with them then take a poll to see what bothered them more, the sound or the stink.

A buddy of mine had race pipes on his RZ350. Idling down the street it sounded like you were making popcorn.

Post a pic after it's painted please!

Re: Cafe Racer love (Giannis)

That is a cool SV Giannis, Cafe Racers are my favorite kind of bike, new or old.
Make sure to put the low bars on it to make it look bad. If any of you are close enough, I would like to invite you to our show in September. Let see some more pic's. I have a buch on my web site.

IMO a street fighter takes a sport bike modifies to be closer to a standard
a cafe racer takes a standard and modifies to be a sport bike
*albeit - sport bike of 30+ yrs ago

Re: (MATTinMN)

Just to add to what Matt said, streetfighters usually have bars more like a dirt bike and cafe racers have clip-on bars that are pretty low.
