I'd love to make a cafe racer out of a CBX SS. Those things are fast for their era...

rd 350 is a legend of its own, but ur right the bike on sale has been already modified, but for the price if it runs it will be a cool build !!

i guess the safer bets are the honda CB... i guess because of reliability and parts compatibility .

Close to stock those rds aren't a cafe bike. If you want the real deal go British but I hope you have the special tools and knowhow. A cb750 would be a cool cafe bike for sure. However if you can find an old norton featherweight frame and bonneville 650 triumph motor, you can make the ultimate of ultimate true cafe racers, the Triton
