    Those are awesome. I would much rather have any of those than the stuff I watch them build on TV. I've always wondered, what do they typically sell for?

    Sweet! I'll bet the exhaust really 'pops' with those short pipes :cool1: I really like the one with the brown seat, but they are all beautiful :waytogo:

    Your ears are so numb from the noise that you won't notice any pop! (pop only comes from an air leak or running lean anyway!)
    The bike with the brown seat is in your country now! Not sure where. It may look a bit different though as the shippers did a whole load of damage to it in transit!:mad:

    The harleys are nice. But your Triumph WOW! That is very nice.
    Used to have a 69 Bonneville that was very customised. I really liked that bike. also had a Norton 750 Comando. It was a lot of fun. Always liked them better than the old back breaking, oil leaking, hard starting harleys that everyone else rode and cussed out all the time. If you ever rode an old rigid Pan head you know what i mean. :wink1:
    You Limeys do build nice bikes.:grin:

    alright, educate my bike dumb brain.. :o :cool1:

    choppers are cool and all, but what exactly would a cafe racer be? :what:

    i like the Triumph.. my buddy has an early 80's GPZ he's tweaking... he wants me to do the paint on his tins... haven't had the airbrush out in yrs! :doah: :rotfl:

    Thanks!:grin: I love the Triumph. It puts a stupid grin on my face every time I take it out for a blast....and it really goes! (sometimes with both wheels on the ground!)
    I had a custom '66 generator shovel that i built, that was a hard ride but started well on the kicker. And I've still got a couple of 500 Triumphs, a '58 and a '63. I've built and ridden many rigids but our roads are too potholed to ride them far now....at my age anyway!:)

    A cafe racer is kind of like a chop but in the opposite way. Start with a fairly stock road bike. Strip off as much as possible that ain't needed. Put rear set footrests on, drop handlebars or clip ons. Tune the motor up a bit, exhausts loud enough to upset the neighbours...get the picture!:grin:
