Hello folks, Im new around and I just had a few questions. I just bought a 1975 200T and I want to turn it into a cafe racer. Where can I get parts like bars, tanks, seat, carbs, exhaust, things like that?

I want my bike to look like this one in the end.



Anyone know where this guy would have gotten that seat and tank from?

Also, will I run into any problems installing clubmans or any other parts?

Any help would be great. Thanks!

The bike in the picture has not had that much done to it that I can see. The tank is original. The seat looks like one that is available on e-bay. Search under cafe. The bike has drag bars on it that should bolt right on, but you will have to pay attention to cable routing and length. The bike in the picture also has shouldered alloy rims on it. They are available used or old new stock. The bike in the picture is a 350 four. The CB200T has a nice cafe looking tank on it already with some attention to the pad that runs down the middle. Good luck with your project. I would suggest starting with the bars and getting it running and then change things as you continue to ride it to suit your needs.

Ken, thanks for all the advice. Are those bars drag or clubman? Its hard to tell. Not much of a different between the two besides ride height correct?

Wow it's your bike? What a small world!

So the bike is pretty much all stock? Thanks for the reply.

Wow! That black 350 is a beaut!!

It looks like the original poster could duplicate that seat look by modding the stock seat, and then attaching a seat cowling to a Triumph Thruxton (the currently sold Thruxton).. They even come in black, and I've seen those cowlings on eBay..
