Great stuff Chris. I love cafe's. A friend has a set of those triple clamps, I'm trying to wear him down, recon they would suit mine. What is the gear linkage off?
I have saved the last photo to add to my screensaver.

is there a story behind the race number on the side?

Thats a nice cafe racer!

I'm looking forward to getting my own twin carb head running soon. We had to make up some manifolds for it and the carbs only went on Thursday.
