    I sent him the ad and told him he was the only one we knew of that was qualified to do this kind of work.
    He said he had already replied to the guy and that he would do all the work for $1 including parts and submit the video to the Cafe Racer TV show. He is currently waiting for the guy to reply.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    so street-fighters are just called cafe racers now in England? Didn't you guys like invent some part of this hobby or something, you know like carpy's dad built the first one or something like that.

    just looking at that ad forces me to ask....do they have trailer (caravan) parks in Ol' blighty? not campgrounds, places where the caravan is on blocks and people live permanently.

    Motorcycle News ought to have some `code of conduct` and refuse to advertise the likes of this for the sake of decency. Id love to organise a whip round to buy something like this and crush it in a press while handing the last dodgy tenner over to the seller

    Yer we do, we also have estates, like low income housing areas were poverty and crime go hand in hand and they're pretty depressing places. More accurate to the trailer parks are probably the Pikeys (derogatory) or Gypsy's - Irish traveller communities that set up caravans and portable homes without planning consent.

    We also have traditional trailer parks but I don't think that they're inherently crime or poverty hotspots.. think they're more catered toward the elderly... though I may be dead wrong.

    I think the modern version of a UK Café racer should be named `Costa Coffee Racers`.

    They're definitely more icedfrappalappasemiskimmedvanillaflavoured than old school espresso.
