Default Cafe Racer Project

Been watching Cafe Racer TV show and got me motivated to do a build. Co-workers son wrecked his 2008 Suzuki SV650S and I picked it up yesterday for $750. 10k miles on it and I thought it being a V-Twin would make it a cool cafe bike a la vintage Ducati. Pretty much all cosmetic damage, bars, levers, fairing, tank, pegs etc... Fires right up and registered through 2011. Kid had mininum insurance so isn't a salvaged title either, he just had to eat the loss

Hoping to end up looking something like this, but I prefer Ducati Red myself...

Had to drive down to the Sunset District in the City to pick it up and I can never resist a trip by Haight Ashbury when I'm down there.

Ben and Jerry's on the corner of Haight and Ashbury, the center of the universe during the late 60's hippie era.

All we need now, is a rider the size of a horse jockey, which counts out ALL the Hoolie's. (We all enjoy the partaying too damn much)!!

Buford would be proud!! Checked out Craigslist this morning and no more than 1 mile from my house some lady is parting out a Suzuki SV650! Picked up pretty much a spare bike minus frame and engine for $300 Don't need most of it, but just the stuff I do made it more than worth it and the rest I can sell on ebay...

Kid I got it from was 6-5". Will most likely put a taller set of bars on it like the build below. Denise says she is going to ride it, I've got a Harley

The SV650's have a huge following. There's a ton of parts available for it. Should be a fun project. When I get my CB750 done, we'll have to go for a ride.
