Vintage / Cafe Racer sub-section?

Hey mods... Any chance we can have a Vintage / Cafe Racer sub-section?
It doesn't really fit in with the cruiser section.

anyways... just a suggestion.

that would probably see less usage than the cruisers section. the first page in there goes back like 8 months.

Wish we had enough of them around here to warrant a section as I really dig that style motorcycle. As soon as the car in my avatar is back on the road I'll be saving $$$ to build an old chopper/bobber. until you get your own section I would suggest checking out The Board @ http://www.jockeyjournal.com/ for inspiration and information. That site is the "sister site" to the greatest old car forum on the internet www.jalopyjournal.com

Just go around those boards and tell them to join up here, most people LOVE those bikes and it would allow you to contact them locally on a forum instead of there.

Plus it would bring more people here enough to warrant your own section.

It'd be pretty neat, I really like the style, just don't have the room for another bike at the moment!

I'd still jump in and get involved, and maybe I could sell some stock take-off's to the cafe racer crowd

What makes a bike a "cafe racer?" I Wiki'd it but still don't know if that's accurate...
