My Cafe Racer Style project has moved on very slightly and with one of the final larger components - the exhaust system - of the build in place it actually now feels like it's starting to take shape. For a number of reasons this is the longest any of my builds has taken to get up together,but now I am hopeful this might get finished within the first 6 months of 2015.
Here are some pics of how it's looking,with plenty still left to do,
and how I envisaged it 3 - 4 years ago
My fabricator / welder,Steve, made the balance section to a pattern/mock up that I gave him,which involved revisiting him a few times after having to tweak it,including the bends that I had added to the s/s Keihin Conti replica silencers.
