Hi All, Its that time of year again, when my focus turns from riding to building. I am starting a new build thread to chart the progress of my Cafe Racer build. Many of you may know me from my "UK Bobber Build Thread" http://www.xs650.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22603&highlight=bobber+build+thread so I hope you'll enjoy this build as much as I As a rough idea to the build, my aim is to build an XS650 Cafe Racer, sympathetic to the original XS, however with a modern twist - USD's, electronic dash, ignition, alluminium spoked wheels, lightweight etc etc. Simple inspiration for this build is what Norton have done with their latest incarnation. To me - a perfect blend of old and new! I am collecting the donor bike this weekend, a very nice '81 Special with Mag wheels which will form a perfect base to start from. Ill post pics up ASAP.
