      I followed a friend of mine to a huge motorcycle show at Mid Ohio 2 years ago, I didn't have much love for motorcycles, just thought they were cool, and I had no idea what a café racer was. But subconciously I was already in love. I was surround by so many amazing bikes, so much nakedness, so many bikini fairings! Ahhh! My film didn't turn out very well though, and the only shot of a cafe racer that worked out is this.

      Some very nice bikes you guys. Wish there were more Cafe people around my neck of the woods.
      Question....or opinion...... finally got the funds to get a new chain and sprockets. Gonna get an EK 530 MVXZ Quadra-X Ring Chain. What color would look good on my Interstate Battery green bike? Its close to being Kawasaki green and Im sort of leaning towards the green EK. Would it be too much? Should I go for another color? Black? Gold? I know its my bike....but if it were yours?

      I've been on the 'tex for years and never ventured in the Motorcycle forum until now, thanks to my renewed interest in riding.
      Anyhow, very happy to find this thread. Here's a carppy pic of my Ducati 450/CB 450 hybrid cafe project as it stood a month ago. It's currently being slightly torn down to be cleaned up made road-worthy for this summer.

      I'll post better pics once it's on the road.

      Any chance we can start up a resource list for Cafe racer stuff on the internet?
      I'm having trouble finding decent web sites!

      This thread never dies! I've been wanting a Bonneville Black for a while now, but haven't been able to find one near where I live... and I keep coming back here and seeing this thread! Maybe there's a message in that, hey?
      Time for some new research... I'm thinking maybe starting out with the 1970s Honda CB500 and see where that takes me.
      Chances are I'll be back. And thanks for those links! They're inspirational!

      That's freaking awesome. Changing the seat does wonders for the appearance of the bike. Here's mine:

      I left it badgeless in an attempt to make people think it's an old Moto Guzzi . I actually do ride with a guy who has a newer Guzzi, which adds to the intentional confusion.

      Except that the guzzis run properly, and the CX's usually don't. lol

      Actually a lot of people would say the reverse is true... thousands of London messengers can't be wrong!
