    Hey y'all! Either of one of these bikes could be my first project and I have no experience with wrenching at all but i am eager to learn. I'm just kinda worried that the build would be a bit difficult because of the seat's position. as you can see it is slanted. I would have no problem doing...

    Hey guys, I am new to the whole motorcycle scene. I used to race dirtbikes. I raced for about 12 years and decided to throw in the boots. I no longer have time to ride my dirtbike as much as I would like with being at school and all but I do miss the feeling of two wheels in-between my legs. So...

    My name's Kevin. I'm 21, turning 22 tomorrow, and I've been into bikes for quite some time. My dad owns the Hawkabusa (go seahawks!), my mom rode around town on her 70's cb100 back in the day, and my grandpa used to race Indians. Bikes have a solid place in my heritage, and it's about time I...

I have very little experience with bikes and looking for help. So I guess my first question is should I start with a frame up or buy a used bike and take...

    Hello, I am interested in purchasing a cafe racer (under $2500), but have limited experience with motorcycles. I had a dirtbike as a kid and have ridden ATV's quite a bit, but recently moved to Denver and am wanting something smaller than my truck (Toyota Tacoma Double Cab Long Bed) for in-town...

    Hello all. I'm an engineering student, new to Chicago, IL. I had a license and Kawasaki Ninja back home in California. Rode for about a year before my speeding tickets caught up to me. It's been about 5 years since then, I've worked out my legal issues and am eager to get back on a bike this...

  10. Project Builds
    Hey everyone, I've been introduced to Cafe Racing bikes by a friend and decided to build a project bike rather than a project car. I've always ridden Hondas when I rode quads and so I've been wanting to stick with the same name. I've passed by an article Honda unveils new 400cc engine Page -...
