i have seen some really cool cafe racers built using triumph motors and of all things ER500 kwaka frames and i think they also used the same sought of frames that suzuki use to make the same sought of comuting bike.

Im a big fan of the old school, but this cafe racer looks awsome, the pic doesnt do it justice, if I had the money I would get one and leave it in the garage just to look at!

is that a cafe?
i guess not to everyones standard but it is a stripped down version and it probably does handle and go faster than the original so i would say yes!

Less Cafe Racer, more Pie Van !
