So here it is (see below), my mustard yellow cafe from last year is now with new metalic gray paint, new shocks, mini lights, pods, and other changes



I can’t wait to get my new clutch cable to ride that thing.

I like the front and rear blinkers, mind sharing what they are?...... That bike looks wicked! Love the brown seat too!

How does the battery position work with the "pods"? I suppose it wouldn't really block any air, now that I think about it. And yeah, diggin' the seat!

Here’s the pods. I think tey’re originaly from a Triumph.

As for the first pic, this monster is originaly from me.

Great looking bike!!! I really like the seat. Did you fabricate it, or is it one from another bike? It covers the dip of the frame nicely. Also the brown seat cover looks great.



Are those progressive rear shocks? Have you had a chance to test ride them? I need to get new shocks. I am not really happy with my HD sportster shocks.

Thanks! the seat is from a cb500T 1976 I beleive, bought on ebay few years ago.

The shocks are progressive, gift from my mecanic (50$), but no I haven’t had the chance to ride yet, I’m expecting a cable by mail. Days are looong!!

No, the front are flashers only. I think if I remember well there was only two wires that I connected to the available ones in the circuit.

Good question. I think its ok like this. But they really give a brake to old bikes around here. They are more tough on big straight pipe harleys.
