I know the cafe racer thing is not everybody's cup of tea but I can guarantee it will be very pretty to look at and a lot of fun for me being able to modify the bike as the bandit was 99% restoration, which I absolutely love, but modifying this first little CB250 quite radically will be a very different set of challenges and should educate me enough to do a top job on the restoration project afterwards. My first bike was a 1954 James 197 and I have a lot of time for old bikes of all eras. Of course both bikes will feature some extensive ally polishing, it's got to be done. thumbsthumbs

Yes mate, thank you. I am very excited to get these 2x bikes, the cafe racer project is a wreck with a good covering of rust but mainly complete, the restoration project is very complete, much better condition and runs, of sorts. The guy selling them has some spares as well. thumbsthumbs


This is the Cafe racer project




This is the restoration project which I will start straight after the cafe racer is complete

I do know what you mean mate, my wife raised an eyebrow when I finished my bandit a week ago, got it on the road and bought 2x more bikes this week, money, time, mess etc.

You're right boys but the good thing is, there is still a few weeks of summer to get going, surely we must have some sun at some point, and I work from home with my old garage converted into an office and I have just aquired a large solid wood desk top to make a lovely corner bench at the rear, already got dado trunking there with power in it. Should work out quite well through the cold months, bench, tools, polishing wheels and bike, all in the warm and dry. It's cheating I know but the back and knees are on there way out, should be sweet. thumbsthumbs
