Here is my 1980 Suzuki GS450L.
First got it in May 2010. Just showing how I have progressed up until now. It's still a work in progress, as you can see. Part 2 will come this summer :)

Building a Cafe Racer: Part 2
Here is my 1980 Suzuki GS450L.
I'm going to be honest and say that I didn't spend a lot of time on this
video. A few mistakes were made :(. And there is not too much progress
shown. But I just wanted to give you guys an update.
I also didn't spend very much time bondoing the gas tank and sanding it, so
there are many imperfections. This time, I will take my time.
I will now be spending most of my time at my school's body shop. I'm going
to prep the gas tank, seat, and side covers to make absolutely sure that
they will be perfect and show no imperfections. Then I will paint them. But
the paint will remain a secret for now ;) That will be for the next video.
Anyways, this should be a 1-2 week process. I will also need to upholster
I have until May 19th-May 20th to finish this bike. I must get it done as
this is my senior project. They won't let me graduate unless I finish this.
So wish me luck!

1982 YAMAHA xj550 CAFE RACER
Me and my dad built this 82 Yamaha Maxim xj550 that we bought. We did a
bunch of custom work here in our two car garage. The list of things done to
the bike is quite long so I'm not gonna get in too much detail but if you
have a question about the bike let me know and I'll try to get to you and
answer it. Enjoy and thank you much for watching

This was the last bike I built in the home shop before moving to a larger
space. The footage was sitting on a drive for months, there was just so
much footage it was a daunting task to sift through it all.
Here is the super cut down version, obviously there is a ton of stuff left
out - but then again i didn't want a 20 hour long video :-)
There are build pics with more details in our blog at

The $3,000, brand-new motorcycle - /RideApart
At just $3,195, both the Cleveland CycleWerks Misfit cafe racer and Heist
bobber massively undercut every other motorcycle out there. At just 250cc,
they're also smaller than most bikes. Bargain or bogus? Grant and Wes take
CCW CEO Scott Colosimo riding in the California desert to find out. For

Ryca CS-1 cafe racer build - from Suzuki LS650
Nearly the maiden voyage of the Ryca CS-1 build. It was warmed up already
after tuning the carb in the garage (notice I did not choke it as you would
to start a cold engine). The ride was as good as the sound. She'll visit
Don Fearon on Saturday for a proper pinstriping job and it will be done!
Nothing left to do but ride. The Ryca Motors kit (http://rycamotors.com)
is well made and we had a great time converting the Suzuki cruiser into a

Season 1, Episode 1; What's Cool, How to Be Cool. Poor mans Cafe' Racer.
Disclaimer: I am not a professional bike builder or mechanic. You should
not modify motorcycles from stock. It's too dangerous and you can't do it
anyway.. You should not ride motorcycles. You mom will worry too much and
you could die.. If you do decide to get a grinder, don't get the 50 dollar
Black and Decker waltrash special. Buy the 13 amp Dewalt at Lowes.. But
don't do that either because grinders are too dangerous.. For real don't
do what I do unless you're prepared to get seriously hurt, hassled by the
cops and or thrown in jail..
Cafe Racer Build Epidsode 7 Looking Good
Here I finish weld the body work on the rear. I have to say it's been a
ton of work and a super massive learning experience to figure all this out
on my own. But damn, I think I did pretty good. I think it's easy breezy
from hear on out but I'm sure I'll run into all kinds of troubles. Next
I'm gonna mod the stock bars and mount the seat pan, tank and rear body
work. Stay tuned! Stay Gold and live the shop life.
