so for the past 2 days I've been poring over every cafe racer I could find trying to mentally build the perfect bike (from an aesthetics point of view). I kept getting little bits of inspiration here and there but nothing really hit exactly what I was looking for.

Then low and behold, I remember that Honda already built the exact bike. I can't decide if I'm crushed or really excited since it would be easy to make a loose replica.

Gorgeous bike, and a super platform for building onto man. Go for it!

On the 2nd, he's obviously got some kind of front-end swap with a GSXR or something of that nature. Haven't really seen an exhaust done like that tho, which is pretty sick.

Cool dude, I agree, the setup is amazing. I dig the tank as well.

I've got Bike Exif, The Return of the Caféracer, Pipeburn and a couple more in my Facebook-feed.
Not good.
Also, there's a Ducati Sport 1000 with the Zard exhaust and some nice other upgrades for sale in Belgium with only 3000 miles on it. Goddamnit.

Been looking at some bomb dual sport motorcycles these days...

Here's a Triumph Tiger 800XC all done up with a bunch of bits, and a larger "Safari" fuel tank. So bad ass.
