Is this someone on here? Cause i dont understand this.....

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/3757171744.html




For Sale: 2005 Custom KTM 525sx Cafe Racer. I converted this bike using top quality parts. Below is a list of most of them:

Trailtech DC electrical system including a new larger flywheel and stator cover- $350.00
Avon front and rear tire- $250.00
KTM rear 42 tooth sprocket- $45.00
Trailtech aluminum kickstand- $110.00
New brake and clutch levers- $25.00
Magura hydraulic clutch master cylinder- $150.00
LED tail light- $30.00
Sportster 3.3 gallon tank- $150.00
Clubman bars with black risers and bar end mirrors-$125.00

I made a custom leather seat that was hand stitched and dyed. The foam is a chopped up boogie board so it is waterproof and will retain it's shape for a very long time. The tail section was handmade using steel and it houses all the electrical components for easy access. I used a K and N filter attached to a custom fabricated turbo hose extender. The bike looks awesome and runs awesome. It starts in two kicks or less. The oil and spark plug were just changed. I also have a maintenance manual. I have a clear Texas title and it has current tags and inspection. The only reason I'm selling is just bought another bike and I need the room. Call or email with any questions. I'm not interested in any trades, cash only. I'm also including all the original parts you see in the picture so you can convert it back to a street legal dirtbike, motard, or whatever your imigination can come up with. I will not sell these parts seperately, they go with the Cafe Racer unless purchaser does not want them. 713-eight zero six-7024

Yeah, it has a little ways left to go on some design aspects to make it look more polished/put-together, but its still unique and cool, IMO.

Seriously how much room could that thing take up? That would be a fun bike to ride. I think i would get a regular cafe seat though. The one on it reminds me of something I made in summer camp.

Stock dirt gearing on it with a 4speed. It should accelerate fast.
It is still . Would be nice converted back to stock or finished better than they were able to do.
