One of the nicest Cafe CXs that I've seen, but I don't think I'd enjoy riding it any further than the young woman in the video.
While I can certainly appreciate the talent that the guy has, and the amount of work that went into the build, but why didn't he clean up the welds on the exhausts?
I sometimes envy people who live in countries that aren't as strict as our motoring authorities, because he wouldn't have a hope in Hell of getting that bike registered in Oz IMHO.
No guards, no rear reflector, hidden number plate (they really hate that because they're missing out on camera revenue), and replacing discs with drum brakes would need engineering approval if you could get it. Still it's a very nice bike and very well made.

Me too, it's really good work.

I wish I could do leather sewing as 'badly' as him :)

but I don't think I'd enjoy riding it any further than the young woman in the video.

But far would you ride it if you were CHASING the girl in the video.....   rolleye0012
