Hello, I am yet another new guy.

I have been riding motorcycles my whole life and recently have been looking into picking up an older street bike. I have been riding motocross mostly but I am in an area and situation that lends itself to a riding on the street.

I have been lurking around here for awhile trying to get a handle on turning an old CB, or GS into a Cafe'. I am going to pick up a bike soon but I have been (trying) to do as much research as possible so I am not just another bandwagon jumper and I can build a bike that is going to give me the riding experience that a true cafe is intended to give.

I have been in the manufacturing industry for most of my adult life building scooters and my father was a mechanic so needless to say, I enjoy the fabrication and wrenching almost as much as riding.

I look forward to being a part of this forum and hope I will be able to give back some of the advise I am sure I will be begging you guys for in the near future.

thanks all,

I will be sure to search any topics before I post, and do my best to contribute where I can.

I now live in WA state, relocated from Nor-Cal (recently), I dont see many Cafe's here, mostly older guys on Heritage Softail's or Road Kings (*sigh).

Any advise on what bikes I should consider at this point? I have been looking at Honda CB550 and 750's as well as the Susuki GS's... I had a KZ1100 in high school and that seems like it would be a good candidate.

any others?
