    Who's got Brit iron?

    Sometimes I feel like there aren't any folks using old brit bikes to make their cafe bikes. I love the CBs and such, but the Triumphs, Nortons, and BSAs always seem to have the coolest lines and details. Maybe I'm just partial, but let's see them gems anyhow. I'd post up mine, but there are plenty of pics of that heap in my build thread.

    I have the triton in my build thread. I've had a lot of brit bikes and I'm sure there will be more. I love the simplicity of them.

    Though not a cafe bike, our Triumph is so pretty that we're using it as living room decor (for the winter)(sorry for the crappy cell phone pic).

    Not Cafe, but I have a 1955 Tiger Cub project. It is a cool little bike with it's plunger frame. I would like to sell it to finance other projects though. $1800. Like a fool I turned down $2K for it at Mid O.
