Well, Its as simple as that. I live in West Chester PA, about 45 minutes outside of Phlly, and it looks like Im the only guy not on a harley or a crotch rocket. Ive just finished my cb550 cafe racer and it doesnt seem like to many people know what to make of it. The weather is about to break and hopefully Ill run into more motorcycle people, but for now its me and a buddy on a cafe style cb750.
There is a car and bike show for the rockabilly crowd this Sunday at a club called The Lagoon in Essington from 10 to 4 if anybodys interested. If there is anyone or anything cool going on around here let me know
thanks

I feel where you are comming from. Just keep that old iron roll'n buddy. I am in WI and its a H.D. world up here. I take allot of flak for rolling up on a motorcycle that sounds like 2 pissed off chain saws.(2 stroke) I wish that I could find some more(besides me) Cafe Racer guys up here in WI. However it is cool to get some of the H.D. guys checking out your ride at a stop light or gas station. In a few weeks there is a traveling 2 bike dyno comming to the local H.D. dealer. Should be intresting. Side by side dyno and it has a christmas tree to do drag strip times as well. Hmmmm hyper active rd400 on drugs verse a sporty or full dresser. Things could get ugly.
Hang in there buddy, hope you find some more cafe racer buddies.

I'm in Lancaster, PA. West Chester is just down the turnpike from me. I feel for your brother - nothing but loud a#% Harleys around here too, Harleys and crotch rockets. I'm working on a CB550 cafe project myself; it's stripped down to the frame right now, but I hope to have her up and running by summer. I've been riding this bike for 20 years - I figure it's time to freshen her up a bit!

Right on! That gives me that much more incentive to get this bike back together. York is not quite an hour down rt30 from me. Maybe we could do a couple diner dashes - there are quite a few good ones in Lancaster county!

um, youre not invited anyway. making me recall all of those suppressed feelings in the other thread. this is the southern chapter. we dont want any more of you yanks commin down here.
i need to get my bike reassembled and get it out. if any of you guys know where i can pick up a cb750k front wheel with disk, that would help.

the disk is secondary. buying a wheel on ebay w/shipping is just outta the question. if you have one id swing up and pick it one day. i can come up with a disk. a nice wheel would be a great place to start though. thanks for looking. let me know whenever.
