Hi all;

I just found this site. I've been into cafe since the 70's. I have three bikes, 2-69's and 1-71. One 69 is a cafe that I've owned since early 70's and purchased while I was in Japan. I'm currently restoring the other 69 to stock form while the 71 is waiting for a total custom job sometime next year.

I'll post some pictures here if someone can tell me how to do it.

Anyone in the NY area that's up for some riding this summer - keep me in mine.

Welcome.

I am not sure how true that statement is. I know of one other in a private colection, and I have heard rumor of 2 more in the NY area.

I used to own a Japanese 1971 cb750 that was brought over by a US service man stationed in Okanawia in the 1970s. Wish I still had that bike.

Still, its a very nice bike. Lets see some more pics.

I am always up for a ride when the ice and snow leave us for good. Always up for some wrenching too so let me know if you need anything.
