Here's my Sachs 800 cafe racer - Nothing too drastic: Ace bars, clipped tail, seat hump, Hagon shocks, Kawasaki clutch & brake master cylinders, short mirrors & bespoke polished stainless 'silencers'. Also blanked off crazy PAIRS system.

I love playing "what is in the background". Umm, mini lite rims, chrome strip, kinda looks like an MGB but maybe not, the chrome strip looks a bit wide and fender line seems off a bit. Borgward Isabella???

For some reason I do not think you are in the USA.

Jack,
The fender shape doen't seem quite right for any of the MG's. It looks familiar, but it is a little more pontoon like. I think it might be Italian, like maybe an Alpha or something by Pininfarina.

Looking at the pics on a screen bigger than my iphone it is obvious to me that the car is not an MGB. No MGs had a fender lip like that. Could be an early Volvo. Too Clunky looking for an Alpha. Maybe the OP will chime in and solve the mystery, or at least give a hint. I am still thinking Isabella (though I may have that car mixed up with a different one, they are soooo common ....) Looks like a quad headlight fender.

I fall into the category of those who didn't realize Sachs were still out there building bikes.

...Darn nice looking bikes!

Now I need to google the stocker to see how significant the changes are. Very tasteful styling for a V-twin sportbike.

Hi, I really like this simple cafe. Can you share which Kawasaki masters used and where you got the exhaust made up please?
Cheers
