    Default Cafe Racer Build.

    Hi,
    It had been in my mind for quite sometime now. I was thinking of all the possibilities. I want to build a "CAFE RACER". Now, I know it's not an easy task. But I want to do it. The only engine that I can think of is the RD350 engine. I am in no hurry. Only after finalizing every detail will I even think about starting it. I don't want to build some stupid machine which looks good and doesn't work and show it to all the people and take it stupid auto shows. I want to build something which I can use and go for rides. The RD350 is the only engine in my mind now. Any suggestion would be appreciated. I regularly watch videos uploaded by Jay Leno's Garage. And I stumbled upon this one video showcasing a build based on a Honda CB750. I think it was a 1976 model. I know its not possible to get engines like that in India. And I don't want to build something with a Royal Enfield engine. I don't have anything against RE. Its just a personal thing.
    Personally I would like it to handle well. Is reasonably comfortable.

    Waiting for the moderators approval and your inputs.

    I have a honda cb750f2 78 model. As u mentioned in the thread it would really look awesome as a cafe racer.

    I'm planning to restore and convert it into a cafe racer.

    The only hang up is that I'm based out of gurgaon and need a mechanic in gurgaon who will work on the honda. Any suggestions?

    I am obsessed with caffe racer. I love the looks of the continental gt but I don't like the engine, Too much vibration. Continental gt with a V twin would be perfect
