Hi All,

I just found this forum and thought I'd join.

I built a 650 Cafe racer a few years back. I've been working on other projects over the last few years so the 650 has sat in the back of the workshop under a sheet.

I pulled it out again the other day and thought I might give it a freshen up. Hopefully I'll get it back on the road or at least put it on display in the workshop somewhere.



Cheers

What kind of fairing is it? Ducati?

Nice bike!

Thanks.

The Fairing is a Dunstall replica. The 900SS fairing is a lot bigger and didn't look quite right to me. The 650 is quite a bit smaller than a Ducati and the SS fairing looked to big. The tank is a genuine Rickman Triumph unit and it's made from fiberglass. I found it at a swap meet years back. It was in pretty poor shape but it restored OK.

I uploaded a few more pics to the gallery.

Cheers
