  1. Project Builds
    Hey guys news here! I have a couple questions about this build I'm starting. 1: what newish front ends can I put on to get a disk brake or is that even worth it? The guy before me laid it down years ago and never used it again and it is beat to hell. Figured I'd update it. 2: The engine had...

    I picked this bike up for about $300 and it even ran. I have all the original parts but someone before me tried putting pod filters and rejetting the carb to make them work but they failed. So it ran a little crappy but nothing was broken. I stripped it all the way down because it needed a...

    Just thought I would throw in my experience on this site, because it has helped me in the past. I bought a 1981 CB400t as a fix and sell, knowing there were a couple issues with it out of the gate. One of which was the drain plug had been overtightened, stripping the threads and causing a...

    Hi everyone! So I'm just going to jump right in. I've recently bought a 1970 Honda SL350 K0 that has a 74 Honda CB350 Twin motor. The bike idles great at around 1,100 just sitting in the drive way and on a quick trip around the block. But when you ride it for a longer period of time it starts...

    Hi CafeRacer.net Just wondering if anyone could help with the type of Honda motorcycle this is? Please ignore the rider if possible. I am pretty new to motorcycles and cafe racers in general, so any help would be much appreciated as I am starting to piece together my first build. Cheers.

    Hey guys I just got a free bike and wanted some insight on how a cafe racer conversion may go or look. The bike is a Honda v45 Magna, thats a 750cc. Shaft Driven and liquid cooled. I am having a hard time finding any builds towards cafe racer. Plenty of guys make sick bobbers from these. Can...

    Hey all, recently got my hands on a Honda cb400t. I'm completely new to motorcycles, parts, and building. I've come to this forum to get the basics and possibly develop my skills along the way. The bike was in pretty rough shape when i got it and I've just been doing research on parts and...

    Hello! So I have a pretty big problem here, and I'm at a loss... when I bought my Honda CB125s (1974) it ran great - revved fine, could hit 65ish (pretty good for a almost 45 year old bike). Then it sat for about four months while I turned it into a cafe racer. I took it all apart and cleaned...

    Hi y'all, figured I'd introduce myself over here. I'm about halfway through a GL1000 project that is both my first motorcycle and first bike build. I've been a car guy for 10+ years and have worked mostly on old Volvos, adding turbos, adapting transmissions, and in general making them way more...

    Coming to a close on my '81 CB900C project. It's come a long way as far as restoring it and trying to convert it back to the stock setup (used to have a hard fairing kit). I finally finished working on the vitals, like brakes, suspension, lights, carbs, registration(LOL), tires, fluid changes...

    Hi everyone, I inherited a friend's custom bike that has been dead for more than 2 years. The original donor bike was a 1998 Honda GL100, which was transformed into this in the course of two years: The original engine was bored-up, and modified with counterfeit parts with poor workmanship, so...

    just some questions, i have a 1983 cb1000c, from what ive heard its all the same parts from the 750-1100 just different bores, is this true? it would be a godsend to be able to find parts if i can use multiple bikes as the search condition instead of a bike that was only made for 1 year like...
