      If I wasn't getting married in 3 months and trickling money into my GTI, I would.

      Good luck with the sale!

      (bike had just over 4000 miles when rebuilt) - every bolt on the bike is stainless steel allen head - twin Mikuni carbs with K&N filters - bike was stripped to the bare frame and all unnecessary tabs were ground off - frame painted silver and all bodywork painted white - gas tank is from a Honda CB 550 and the seat is from Omar's - seat has been modified to make room for the tail light - seat cushion was redone with firm padding - custom fit polished aluminum side covers - twin disc front end - polished aluminum shouldered rims - mini tach and speedometer gauges - turn signals front and rear - powder coated black clubman bars with Napoleon bar end mirror
      Bike is kick start only - starts easily and runs very strong - short reverse cone megaphone mufflers sound great - these bikes are oil tight and bullet proof
      Too many little details to list everything - must see to fully appreciate
      Bike was originally set up as a street tracker - frame still has mounting points for high mount exhaust if you ever wanted to go that route - clean title in hand

      Thanks


      another person asked for a vid a while back.

      all I have is my cell phone, I wish I had some go pros or something. Its pretty hard nearly impossible to record even a halfway decent video with my cellphone with this thing plus the sound quality would really suck the bike is really loud and sounds like a harley davidson

      tax time special $4000 obo.

      spend your tax returns here, piss off your wife, fiance, girlfriend, mother in law and live a little on the wild side with this awesome cafe racer.



      next bump will be closer to nice weather. shes just sitting in the corner of my garage ready to go.

      $4,000 obo. Don't be caught this season again without a ride.

      Entertaining tire kickers in person. Must see to really appreciate. Sorry no test rides, not enough insurance in the world to replace the bike if you wreck it. I will let you sit on it while its running and twist the throttle a couple times

      Get ahold of me by text or email 815-280-three tree five nine

      I have the bike on craigslist for 3900 getting tons of interest.

      I just went out to the garage and took some more pictures. My cellphone camera doesn't do this bike an ounce of justice but they are pictures i just took 11:30am 5/22/13

      The bike has been sitting and hasn't been started or ran or anything since last summer and it wasn't even rode much then. My shoes were wet since its raining outside and my foot slipped on the first kick and the bike fired right up on the second kick.

      Couple of very small paint chips here and there nothing bad at all.

      side of the seat where your leg goes



      side of the tank where the throttle cable hit from turning too sharp.





      top of the fender between the forks. dont even know how this one happened.



      front right side of the fender



      melted part of my boot one day on the pipe next to the peg. this will come right off.
























      949 miles on the rebuild. I put 63 miles on it last year going to the bank and the sandwich shop and through town a couple times.
