The above pic is probably the ultimate cafe racer. An H1 500cc engine in an s1 250 frame built by simon whitlock (of 48 cylinder kawasaki fame). the bike features watercooling (the frame is the radiator), nitrous, a roots supercharger, computerized fuel injection, H1R front hydraulic drum, and other little mad bits and baubles (like gauges mounted in the top clamp). supposedly the bike ran like an ape raped by a t-rex (that's really really really forkin fast).
If someone in their shed in merry old england can build this bike, then there is no reason anybody here can't get off their arses and build something similar. This is a call to arms for all the newbies and lurkers....."You can do it!!!!!!!!!!!"
so, lets see some project bikes from the people that don't usually speak up.
