As I was makeing these threads I realised that I've built quite a lot of bikes recently...

 

Can a motoGP- racebike be turned into cafe racer? This was the question I wanted to figure out when building this. Apparently you can with a lot of patience. Almost everything apart from engine is modified or made from scratch. Painted with CAB fishing tackle paints, Alclad metals and Tamiya's acrylics. All carbon fibre and kevlar decals are made from bare decal sheet.

 

This also is currently the most recent build I've done.

That looks superb, the seat doesn’t look very comfy though

I was going to say that as well! Numb bum time...

Thanks. The seat is often quite thin in cafe racers in real life also, but maybe this one was a bit extreme. Or not as the best I've seen in real life cafe racer was just a piece of plywood cut int shape and covered with leather patch for looks...

Brake hoses are braided steel wires from top studio, lower end sleeve is 1,5 mm² cord end sleeve cut to 2mm length. Banjo bolt between the hose and caliper is made from different sized metal tubes.
