I suppose we can endlessly debate what is or is not a cafe racer. However, I can tell everybody with absolute certainty that this thing is not and never will be a road racer. I wouldn't push that thing around a racetrack, much less ride it on one. It has absolutely no performance upgrades in power, stopping, suspension or handling. It is not track legal, no safety wire, bad tires, crappy shocks and no numbers. The title of this thread is flat out deception.

So about that post count thing?

the endless stream of stupid and repeated questions from people late to the party is one thing.
but the one post count guys with shitty bikes for sale sucks.

That bike is not a "road racer" and it is barely a "café racer" . XS750s are heavy, slow, evil handling lumps of doom.

It's a great bike, don't sell it!

Keep it all for yourself!

The seat looks like a cushion for an old cat.

Jesus effing himself on a stick. What is it, of late? I blame the interwebs.
It's like the hipster beard, tight pants, logger boot, instagraham, stepford sentiment.
I've got an old cat. She does tend to sleep in the oddest of places now. At times I'm concerned about the onset of feline dementia.
My olde cat would certainly slumber upon that lump.
Hell, I wouldn't sit on it.

NE

p.s. Ohshit! For some reason I didn't read the fine print, declaring that this thing is for sale.
I....just.....it's all over. The end is extremely effing nigh.

We have now passed peak Hipster, there is no turning back. Now the Zombies will come and eat your brain.

As your cat looks on, and thinks: "MEH" .

"Danger, is my business."

Even though it's not a road racer guys, it sure is pretty to look at...
It's a little bit overpriced but definitely not going to be a bike you sell for under 1000 guys LOL.
