    "Consider swapping for something'.
    I'd swap it for the Cat grader in the background, be more useful. :lolsign:

    Maybe the grader could be used to bury the thing

    If it were in Mad Max, it would probably look cool. But as a daily ride? Pass.

    While we have seen our fair share of Crap that is commonly called a "Cafe Racer"... this article is a true Cafe Racer... with a few modern touches.. but the Norton Featherbed frame and the Triumph T120 engine are originals... I think they possibly went a bit overboard but the build quality is gorgeous...

    From one of the comments; 'beautiful and useable, as good as it gets.'

    I didn't realise those bikes had pod filters?! seems like a reasonable resto.

    Whats not to like?? The cut down front guard...no rear guard at all.. stubby velocity stack or the see through cover where the Tacho drive is meant to be... maybe the butchered frame.. or the uncomfortable "Racer" seat.. or the different front forks...
    Hmm I think I am with you Blair... no further comment :mad:

    I actually like how clean the lines are, it has that classic look. You see loads of bikes like this which are minimalistic , this one leaves you looking at its features rather than what did he cut off to achieve this look. Imagine if he restored it to original with that level of detail.

    I would have preferred it wasn’t a Ducati that was cut up , but....then again, it’s not my bike

    Try honing the bores on this baby, or get a gasket kit.

    Honda Racing Oval Piston V4750 32 valve. A real work of art.

    I was talking to my coworker about that the other day. Tolerances would be very tricky to get right...

    And some more..... 200 HP on the pipe... 50 off and 500 rpm transition... lets call it peaky... with no traction control. Back when Masters like Fast Freddie, Mick Doohan, Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson rode these beasts... I wonder how George would go with his tank (exhaust on this one) position on this bike...lol
