the bike has it’s new name now:
“Back in Black”
As Michael’s Jeckyll N Hyde machine is under refurbishment and will end up just black instead of half black/half green I feel it can now only be known as one or the other. What name do you think it should retain?
OK, I changed the name to “Jekyll or Hyde” 😉
After seeing her in the flesh I agree a very good name to suit a good looking bike that has just gone ‘Back in Black’
Hi Lonesome Twins,
I move on with the “Back in Black”.
It is all about the upper front end.
New head light holders, head light painted black, drilled holes to route the cable of the centralised speedometer through it.
Different upper triple tree(?) without ugly steering bar holders. Not needed anymore cause I use the Clip-Ons.
New black grips and very nice (but expensive) bar end flashlights already here.
Keep you updated 😉
MMM it is looking better. I might redo my CSR this year. The paint has not taken too well. It will be after the ACE Café run.
I am testing how a baggage carrier can be mounted. Under construction !
aaah, worked on the cockpit as well.
Not finished yet, but slim and everything will find it’s place:
Luggage is looking great. Fits the lines of the bike and hung quite low.
I’m quite intrigued to see exactly what you are creating for your cockpit. mmmm
Looking totally brilliant. Just when we thought every possible motorcycle style niche had been filled, you manage to come up with the touring café racer. Superb!
Thank you so much !
I will show more and detailed pics when progress is achieved.
BTW: There is some playing with words, at least in german language.
The german word for a side bag (singular and plural) is just “Koffer”, which means suitcase as well.
This bike is a “Caferacer”, as you can see.
With the side bags attached it is a “Kofferracer” 🙂
Have fun !
Looking good Michael. The mouse, though cute, has got to go. 😉 😉
I really really dig this bike. So nicely done!
Thank you, guys !
I was a bit lazy posting pics:
Here the cockpit swap.
