I am just starting out on my first cafe project and I am new to the cafe style but love the look. I want to design and fab everything for my bike. I have heard good and bad things about the CB650C but I got it for nothing. I don't want to just bolt parts on I want the bike to have my personality and feel. Any help from anybody that understands what a real Cafe Racer style is I would really appreciate the input. I don't like the so called "bolt-on cafe" bikes because anyone with money can "put one together" like a kit car. I am giving myself 2-3 years to complete the project, working mostly on weekends and some nights.The hardest thing I have come across so far, even though I just started, is which style do I like. I like so many different things about so many bikes I would have to build about 20 bikes. So I am working on a design right now and hopefully I can put it down on paper first.
