apehangers are teh ghey. i point and laugh at them everytime. unless im working at a dealer or shop, in which case i do my best to stifle the chuckle. thats just my opinon though...

cafe would be kind of cool...the pic you put up for a cafe idea is pretty sweet. it may not ever BE much of a racer, but if you just want it to look like one, thats cool, too

id do whatever maintenance it needs, hit with some honda polish and be done with it...if anything else add some accesories to make it useful...maybe some bags and itll be awesome as a go-getter for beer, smokes, or whatever small items you might need from the store while running errands

Yep looking like the people have spoken. Im honestly surprised how many people thought it was ok as-is.

I'll start ordering parts & start a build thread once I get going on it.

Thanks mh!
