i know that.. its more of a sportbike... but honestly if you look at them now they just have almost that same culture at bobbers and rat bikes.. and the fact that lot of them dont actually go "that fast" i would classify it more as a cruiser.

What kind of bike are you getting? Has it already been caffed?

My current ride is a 73 Bonneville 750 which I'm in the process of caffing. Come to the Dark Horse Tavern, next Wednesday around 7:30-8:00. There will be a group of us on vintage cafe bikes.

WTF? Your comment about culture = No.

"that fast" ? OK, here is a picture of the front of my bike. If you are getting a bike from the same time period,...this may be your only chance to see it...

(Humor doesn't translate that well for me in print. So just thought I would tell you I'm only funnin' with ya. Come out to the Dark Horse next Wednesday. Caffs are totally cool. It will be hard for you to wipe the smile off your face when you ride yours around.)

a different kinda bike..

Ill get some pictures soon, anyone ever thought about putting a sport bike motor in a bobber? I like the look of my bobbers but i want some speed, and I love being somewhat unique by driving a bobber figured it would be cool to have a 140HP death rig.

yep, i've been wanting to put a gsxr750 engine in a 130 bobber for some time... even found a frame, just don't have the cash to put into it right now...

http://www.cycleonemanufacturing.com...cleframes.html

SUGSXR7503fsbb1udsdt32rbtn200rrchain

for that matter, my bike does have a sport bike engine, as it's almost identical to the engine hyo uses in their sport bike, and not too far from the sv650... redline is somewhere between 11k-12k rpm
