@greyolm, I'm sure there are plenty of people that could do it, eBay just seemed easier? I made a cardboard template, go the look I wanted and then found one similar. It would be superb if someone made one in SG and then actually had it approved my the LTA.

It doesn't matter what the question is, the answer is more power!

wow.. Awesome stuff @singkiwi !

 

Gonna start a cafe racer project of my own. was afraid of treading into uncharted waters. inspired by your work! did you have to do a tail chop?

 

Was contemplating that but afraid it might be an issue at inspection.

 

No Chop, kept the frame intact, that way the seat can be swapped for inspection etc.

Cheers

Hello, how much did it cost you? I am interested to turn my bike into a cafe racer bike also. Im not sure how though. Would you kindly help or advice?

Of course I trust my skills. I ride alone cos I don't trust the competency of the driver next to me.
