    I find it interesting what people choose to include in their picture gallery, and what they choose to leave out of their pictures. Perhaps this bike dosen't even have a left side at all.

    Cool! ---RIP

    I'm am happy to see that stupidity is not just an uniquely American trait. A TR tail section and clubmans do not a cafe racer make. He did get some things right, and some very wrong. It looks like a vinyl-covered blu-ray player for a seat. Open carbs? No rearsets? "open triangle" buy not de-tabbed?

    It could have been much worse.

    Of course it needs priming to start - that's why the petcock has a pri setting. Nothing worse than a tool that doesn't know how to work his own motorcycle.
