That thing is so disco chic! I think Joe will be OK if you say cafe "style" bagger... It's already got the style... or a style.. some style? Well.. its a cool project.

   I think you should just keep it as it is---then use it when you retire and become a funeral procession traffic guide.

Now that's funny!!! ;D

I will have to get my son to post up his KZ400 project on here. It is really looking cool, like a mini Triumph racer from the early '70's. It is also his first hand-built fuel tank of polished aluminum.
Who are the grateful dead? And why do they keep following me?

Ha ha, I was going to say the same thing!

But if you want a little... uh, ... er, ..ahem,...."cafe" project, looky here; http://www.caferace.com/

Oh, and dont worry about Joe, he has'nt shot anyone in several days  ???
79' Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special "The Daytona"
74' Yamaha RD350 "The Little Hot Rod"...currently under the knife.
02' Aprilia Capo Nord "The Mighty Ape"
93' Kawasaki KZ1000 Police cafe' "Snoopy"


Have a good and Godly day, for what lasting value is a good day if it is not also a Godly day?

Take it one step further and make it a cafe shriner bike... wear a fez with a chinstrap as a helmet. What could go wrong? People will either get it or think you're a bike-stealing grinder monkey.
