The plan is to build a cafe racer with a little of the style of Shinya Kimura, ie full bare metal everything and this is the first step, stripping off all the paint, with a wire wheel. It has to be a wire wheel as the process, part polishes the metal of the frame to the required effect.

As you can see we have modified the frame, adding a cross tube in the front down tubes and created a box section between the seat frame rails to house the electronics and finally we detabbed the frame of all unnecessary brackets.  The final thing still to do is the weld in an oil site glass into the backbone tube housing the oil.

This bike is for Sale. If you are interested please contact John on  john@taimoshancycleworks.com
