    Check out Chica customs. I think its one of the Zero guys in California. They use the goose neck frames and put clubmans on bikes with forward controls. The Japanese enjoy sore backs.

    chikor,

    thanks for the link; these guys are on the ball, and not too far from here. road trip time.

    didn't mean to take it off topic but these bikes seem to me to be the precursor to 60s and later era cafe racers. that would be boardtrackers eh?

    why do you say almost want a harley, almost? i'd love one, at least pre 1955 or so. they are ungodly expensive tho, so for now it's the honda dream with no front fender and no seat....

    well if i were to get an old american bike it would have to be a 1927 Indian Scout....otherwise i'm not interested......as for the precursor to cafe racers? you need to look at england not america.....cafe racers started to shoe them selves in the 50's....the bikes you speak of are bobbers and they are the precursoe to choppers, vets came back from overseas and tried to get back into racing but the rules of racing were not agreeing with them so they started "outlaw" racing clubs....that is were the trem outlaw biker comes from, they were racing outside the laws of the sanctioned races.....the cafe racer was not going against the racing laws of the time they were building custom speed machines to have fun on the street with.....a whole different thing, but don't get me wrong i love the bobber style bike......
