i agree.I've gone through so much time and thought about the direction I'd like to take with my CB build. I've spent a lot of time here, soaking up as much knowledge as I can. So far, I think getting the bike running and sticking to mods that are simply performance driven is the best idea. As much as I love the style of the old Cafe Racers, I have the feeling that I will end up with a bike that is fairly close to it's original design and I won't want to change it. Then again, I may want to change the entire riding profile. I'll see when I get there. Guys like us are lucky, because we have a wealth of knowledge here and it's given (albeit sometimes sarcastically...lol) because of experience.
