CaTacL and TrailsRider, those Mad Max bikes are definitely my inspiration and what got me started on this journey. Originally my plan was to just do a version of what was done to those bikes. I imagine some performance parts were put on, the fairings, bars, etc. But then I started seeing all these pictures and videos about what people are doing to those bikes these days. I thought that was the new norm because it was a step in the direction of improvement over what they could do when that movie was made. But thats what I keep trying to say is, I don't know. That why I'm here. To try and learn what are the right and wrong things to do with these bikes. The pics of inspiration bikes I provided aren't necessarily what I want to do but just an example of what I'm seeing. I admit I like the aesthetic of what they're putting off but I was trying to discover if that's the what's done. I'd take one of the bikes from Mad Max any day.I prefer the term "vintage street racer" for the mad max bikes (and really any 70s bike that's has the performance treatment).
The term cafe racer has been coopted by trendy people.
