my 10 dollar buy
« on: October 30, 2009, 06:18:26 pm »
so my dads buddy was talking about building a cafe racer off an old yamaha my dad asked him about it and he pulled out an old winshield covered in  bird crap  and cracked winfshield ... he said my dad could have it for like ten bucks so he forked over the dough and then his buddy was like oh here this goes with it and it was brand new windshield... so here she is..... the real question is does it work with the stock handle bars?.. i love em  i dont know if i really wanna turn them upside down or get clubmans

Super bike bars at least if your going to sport a cafe fairing. Business in the front and party in the rear with the back rest. Bike seems a little undecided. My thoughts anyway.

Not that I've seen.  It's two different styles that don't complement each other.  I don't even see how that sissy bar would make any difference to your wife.  She'd have to be leaning really far back to even touch it.  As long as you're not doing any wheelies she ain't gonna fall off.

the triumph thruxton has a cafe seat that, with the removable rear cowling off can take 2 passengers, perhaps build something like that?

This is probably your easiest solution. While not the cheapest you won't have to make any sacrifices on either bike.

here it is. look closely and you can see the screws on the seat cowling. something like that should be pretty simple to make.
