    Newbie Warning From WV.

    Hello all.

    Yeah, I am the new guy on the block. I been wanting to do a cafe project for years, but just never found the time or bike, or energy or, well, all seemed like there was a reason.. (The wife might have been one of those, but don't tell her! Love you honey!)

    So, the other day I saw a 1979 Yamaha XS750s for sale on the FB yard sale for a really easy price, so I finally pulled the trigger and set myself up with a winter project.

    She is rough.. But I think she will pan out to be a sold fun ride once completed.

    So, before I dig in and more importantly, before I start coming to all you experts for help, wanted to introduce myself and say thanks!

    You can set that bike up to be fun to ride... but I'm certain it's not going to look like you think it should/want it to look.

    What psi are you going to use on the steamer? I've always found a lot of cafes run too low of a temperature and pressure to get the results that I like

    Why do you say that? New 77 tank. New seat, maybe raise the back, change out the front forks.. Not sure way I can’t get the look I want? Little confused..

    Bars and trees are going in the trash. Probably along with the front forks. Read something about the front shock on this bike being trash. Not sure why.

    I believe they're talking about a literal Café (the coffee kind with steamed milk) lol
