    Hi, I’ve just joined the Forum and thought I’d say hello

    I’ve got a 2010 Cafe Racer, with a few mods. And if anyone can help with how to post a picture (via iPhone) I’d love to upload one.

    Happy riding, Rich

    Where did those silencers come from?
    Is there enough space under that tail for the electronics?
    One more thing I would do is change out the old style headlight bucket for the newer ballistic aluminum one.
    Other than that, looks pretty bitchin'
    Well done.

    Thanks The end cones are from Cone Engineering in the US and I had my local exhaust specialists (Infinity Exhausts) create SS tubing. In hindsight I might have gone up a size on the cans and maybe had them kick up at more of an angle but overall happy.

    Parker Fabrication did the tail unit - Simon’s a real pro and he managed to fit it all in there with a bit of trial and error ! He’s the guy that did the bodywork for The Motorbike Show Commando with Henry Cole.

    Still deciding if I like the gold forks or prefer black. A never-ending project

    I like the black barrel and head ,. This is one of the few original older bikes I have seen .

    Black forks would go nicely with the black rims.
    Then of course a black tank would match the black........
    You're right, it never ends, but it's safer than drinking and chasing women.;)

    Very nice tank, seat, tail light thing going on there Rich.

    Black forks would transform the bike (for the better) IMHO.
