Anyone ever made a cafe outta one of these? i got a kickass deal on one(50 bucks)... its got 5,000 miles on it, and the owner is an older lady from cali. shes kept regulat maintenance on it, and parked it last spring, in her garage, tarped and all...

any ideas, or should i just leave it the way it is and ride it? i already have a 73 cb450 thats cafe'd but i like these little bikes..

The Honda CB,CL,SL etc. four stroke singles are great little bikes.
They can seem a little under powered at times so don't be in a hurry to get somewhere quickly. Freeway riding may be a little scary on one though.

They can and do make great back road and around town errand bikes and I would take one any day over a scooter.

i have a stock CL125 and a cafe CL125. they are very fun around town. will do 60mph if pushed. honda said they would run all day at close to redline but that was 30 years ago.
there are a few guys on here building these mini-motos.

There is the right way, the wrong way and the british way to do anything!
