Hi. I stopped riding about 15 years ago, but previously commuted for about 12 years at over 20000mi/year. In the late '80s I did a cafe/streetfighter out of a vf750. I cut off the rear pegs, all the bodywork except the seat ass'y, all the tabs etc. I used a hot rod headlight. I filled in the area around the headstock with carbon fiber. To regain air flow to the carbs, I left the top off the airbox, and raised the tank about 3/4 inch. Back then I didn't even know about streetfighters, it was just something I wanted to do. I put about 50000mi on that bike, it was one of my faves.
I just bought an '82 cx500 that I'm doing cafe style. Not really what you guys are doing, but I like what you have, and, if you don't mind, I'll hang out a little.
