Yep one more ugly shit box for the crusher.  Those fuck wits should walk about with a side cover suspended from a pole by a bit of string chanting "we're all individuals"

I only saw a hand full of modified Ks That i believed are a work of art. Our original bikes are not perfect, but they don't need to be chopped to improve the quality.
I don't have any problem with people replacing parts to improve the ride quality, but modifying the original look and security features is beyond me. I would love to have ABS even if this is extra weight on the bike.

I can see the point of people wanting to make a cafe racer but using a K to make one is way beyond my ability to suspend disbelief. A K would have to be one of the most unsuitable bikes for that style. It has a huge "brick" shaped engine which can only be improved by covering it up with a fairing. Even a mother couldn't call that engine lovely. I personally would never make a cafe racer however a vertical single or twin is by far the best for the style.
Even the Boxer twins didn't make the grade to me. What befuddles me most is this world wide craze of making cafe racers from K and Customizing them so that they all look the same.

Another cause of my befuddlement in this cafe racer thingy is the idea that you should remove any roadworthy practicalities such as mudguards, instruments that work just fine as they are, then put on square profile tyres so the bike no longer goes around corners. All this in an effort to make something vaguely reminiscent of an old Brit bike from the 50s. I love old Brit bikes... have owned BSAs, Nortons and Triumphs over the years and loved them all....but a slender, streamlined, light cafe racer a Brick doth not make.

In my youth foolishness was a given, I bought a 69 BSA Lightning Café racer. I proceeded to use it to travel between Albury and Melbourne virtually every weekend. After one back and forth trip I concluded I had made a very stupid choice for a long distance mount. Kustom K's - Page 2 610153 The only thing that saved me was the fact I had been given all the standard parts. Over a period of 3 weeks it went back to standard. I sold all the café parts and actually came out of the deal a lot better than I should have. Kustom K's - Page 2 694830

Anyone who has ever spent much highway time on a British vertical twin ( A65 or T140 etc) at around 4,000rpm or so will probably testify that at 4 grand, the BMW K100 doesn't really vibrate much at all Smile

I got accustomed to having to check things at least once a week after having a few things come adrift. I then found a new use for silastic putting a dab on threads. I also used to chew through headlight globes.

It snows a lot in Ukraine, they have tools, a ramshackle garage, free time when not fighting Russians on the eastern front, but a sturdy-looking Russian chainsaw engine, and kids' toys laying about, so why not break out the welder?!

Holy Crap!!!  I can't stop laughing.  Those guys are absolutely hilarious, and the machine voice is perfect for the video.  Those guys make me proud to be of Ukrainian heritage.

Ooops, we forgot the brakes.  No handlebars?  No problem. 

I will be chuckling the rest of the day.

Thanks for posting that!!!

In this Instagram world real takes on a decidedly digitally artificial tone. Akin to the 'pooch face' 99% of young girls make. This too shall pass.

Though, the bike Polina sits astride...are the brake discs painted black as well, and the paint partially scratched off by the pads? Silly buggers. Quick, wheel it out, get a girl over it. About a look and not much about a function. Clever of them to place the sidestand on the right hand side, left to wonder if they did that for the pedants such as me to notice.

Polina needs to get with the program. Most other moto owners use old drive chain as whips. K owners use old wiring looms.

And with the plenitude of customs and cafe racer Ks with stripped out wiring looms of late, this would appear to make it easier access for pleasure seekers.

Polina's surname is Yakovleva.

Does that go next to the brake lever? Wouldn't it distract you if you were riding?

Suspension is interesting (and no, I'm not talking about Polina, Chris!) but then he goes to all that trouble to mate the GSXR front end and is still using the bloody OEM fuel tank! Move the damn fuel pump guys and use something more interesting to stick the go-juice in...

... not that that bugger is ever likely to run.

Couple of things I notice about cafe racer bikes 

So many dont have a front guard so how they get rego? 

So many dont have stands and use racing stands you would need to plan your ride pretty well to make sure where your going had a spare one and it will suit your bike 

The third one is the use of the TKC 80 tyres ? Simple question why could only add more vibrations

Front guards are not cool take it off after the inspection
If you don't have a stand just lean it against a tree.
Kustom K's - Page 2 Bike_a10
The tyres can shake the shit out of a night cart if it is cool to have them and they must be cool because all the individualized cafe racers/scramblers have them.

I doubt the tire shake is a big thing with cafe bikes.  I don't think they are used that much, probably just to secret meeting places where the builders share notes on hacksaw blades and Suzuki forks while waiting their turn to be photographed in front of some graffiti in an abandoned warehouse.

In my state, unless the bike is truly custom and doesn't have a manufacturer VIN or has been totaled by an insurance company all you need is a semblance of a frame with a VIN on it and you're good to go.  Otherwise nobody ever inspects vehicles here. If you have a "clean" title for the VIN and give the state money for annual registration that's all they care about - revenue.

Your only exposure is if a cop sees a federal DOT or state equipment violation and decides to ticket you. For example, I know guy who got a ticket for turning his license plate 90 degrees on an otherwise legal/stock fairly new 1200 GS.

No insurance is required for motorcycles either.

But it all varies by state as some states do require annual inspection and most require insurance.

Fuel tank solution, sell the OEM tank. Make or modify a more suitable looking tank and fit an external fuel pump.

You can paint it Barbie pink or stick My Little Pony stickers on it to give it more street cred.

Yes a blue pump would do the trick, so would replacing the airbox with a mini fueltank with the existing pump in it, and use any attractive café racer tank to fill the under tank. So simple to be cool and ditch the uncool airbox so easy to just add a different tank, Yet!! it doesn't happen. Me I cant wait for the day someone shifts the radiator just to throw everyone off. Cool.

Fantastic!! I knew my $400 K bike was going to be a good investment. I figure when I finish it, with the added feature of the giant man bag sidecar hanging off the side it must be worth at least $55,000....say a third of a Greenframe Dudoggy.

I wonder what makes up the $18,000
Im only plucking figures from thin air so go easy on me 

Lets say 
 1) engine and drive line rebuild $ 5000
2) paint $ 4000
3) electrics $ 1000
4) brakes $ 1000
5) suspension $1000
6) tyres $500
7) fuel system $1000

 I get to about $13,500

K1100RS

"With the bike weighing a fraction of its former self, Giorgio invested time into improving performance. The K1100 forks have been suitably rebuilt and the mono-shock swapped for an updated version. In place of the bulky airbox is a breather system that uses lightweight corrugated pipework. A large K&N cone filter positioned above the swingarm feeds each carb via the 1-into-4 system..."
