Sure! Lets hook up one day, with CBR_Tran who is also building a cafe, and look at some of my cafes and share ideas. At the end of the day, it is all about putting bunch of ideas together, and you picking the direction you wanna go with the bike.
Pm me when you are around Spring Branch.

Hey Bluepine!

I've been toying with the idea of getting a built cafe bike or building one. If you guys meet up, or go to Shepard Park on Thurs, please let me know. I'd love to learn and bounce some ideas around. Thanks!

John

Sure,
I rarely go to Shepperds Park. But, if you ever decide to go, let me know. Will come with one of my cafes.

Tran,
Do you wanna hit Shepperd Park on thursday with Brutus and I? We can checkout some cafes there for ideas and if food sucks at Shepperd, can have Brother Pizza next block over. You can bring Michael as well.

Tim at TXpowdercoating is great guy and awesome craftsman. Just that it is kinda far from Us. But, if you decide, i can drop it off for you on my way back from the track day at GSS. I'm going there on Saturday. But first, call him up and get an idea of what it cost before you decide.
Btw, when are you gonna do a TD? I think there is gonna be a parade laps on Saturday at GSS why dont you come hang out with Us and do a parade laps to get a little taste of the track?
