    Well.... I randomly started wrenching on my 66 satellite. Converted to a bastardized HEI setup (oem electronic dizzy, big cap hei module and tbi bobbin coil sharing a bracket machined out of scrap aluminum) and got it running, dug out my duster disc brake spindles, discovered i need lower control arm bushings and ball joints. So now I am putting stiffeners and sway bar brackets on the LCAs, building adjustable heim jointed strut rods, and setting up for 15x8 or 17x8 tires. Its truly a bad idea.

    Also did Jag ever buy anything?
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    I thought that a cafe racer was a custom that you could do whatever you wanted and there is no right or wrong.

    Pretty solid cars but I always hated when they rolled into the shop because they're fairly hard to service. Engine is pretty well buried, replacing front struts involved disassembling the dash board and had a crank driven driveshaft to run the cooling fan in a time where electric fans were the norm. Some strange engineering but being a Toyota, reliable in spite of it.

    Over here they were called the Tarago and we used to hire these to go interstate when I was playing in a band. They were pretty hard to kill and surprisingly economical on the highway.

    I did, however, make one stop when I ran over a boulder that fell off a truck coming the other way - it bounced up and punctured the lower water hose and the temp started to rise. Had to get it towed to a nearby town to have a new hose installed but it could have happened to any car really.

    Also, they can do 200kph. I had a friend who worked in car rentals and he told me the story of a guy who was clocked doing 200 on a highway somewhere in NSW in one of there rentals. Apparently he had a wife and 2 kids on board as well!

    Yes it is!

    I had one up to 160 once. Very deceptive as inside the cabin is extremely quiet so anything between 100 and 140 had about the same noise level. Easy to let the speed "creep up" on you and get booked if you weren't keeping an eye on the speedo...
