Congratulations on your cafe racer it really is a beautiful example. I hope to start soon but I do not have your skills and will sure use your progress as a reference. Greetings

hi guys, as you all know the Megaton exhausts are kind a noisy :) . so I bought the Megaton DB-killer and installed it today. I did not drive it yet, but it seams a lot quieter. I'll keep you informed about the result.

Hi guys,

I would say it is 95% finished;)

things I still want to do : change my speedo/tacho with a digital one, replace the friction plates of the clutch (maybe this weekend), wrap my exhaust, add separate front turn signals (now integrated) and a few other small things

overall I really like riding the bike. It really comes alive at around 6000rpm.

thanks for the help everybody!!!

Tom

Hi guys, a new update :cool:
this weekend I renewed my clutch (it went very difficult in neutral). I used new EBC clutch plates and springs. I had to make my own tool to loosen and fasten the central clutch nut, but it al went fine . I just had to repair a broken bolt :mad:
it goes fine in neutral now
