Posted a HD Cafe Racer that was submitted and asked if anyone knew anything about it. BAM….Brian submits a couple of links and I found a few more pics of the bike. Cheers Brian.

Someone submitted this picture, no info, just the pic.
Looks ok, thought I’d post it. Looks like a fairly tight HD cafe to me.
Anyone got any info on it?

The Bikes of Throttle Roll.
Last Saturday, the first motorcycle event of its kind happened in Sydney. I flew out of Sydney 24hrs before. %$#@!
Being friends with the organisers, they were kind enough to forward me the press release with all 48 pictures. I’m showing you the pics of just some of the bikes that were on display.
“Spirits, hair and thumpers were running wild at the debut motorcycle showcase event Throttle Roll on Saturday May 11 at The Vic, Enmore in Sydney, Australia.
With over 3500 (motorcycle enthusiasts, families, hipsters and dogs) people attending the event across the day, the streets of Enmore where filled with the likes of Bobbers, Classics and Café Racers. Traffic clogged up as bikes where parked left right and centre. No parking - signs covered. Footpaths littered with stunning bikes. The Motorcycle show covered 3 streets and that was before anyone had made it inside. It felt like a carnival of a Rio street party level. Once inside the venue 60 of Australia’s best where displayed in this urban jungle of a motorcycle show. Concrete floors, graffiti covered walls, scaffolding 2 bikes high, a massive stage and a whole lot of alcohol. It was a celebration of custom motorcycles and rockabilly culture. 12 hours of vintage inspired entertainment by the Snow Droppers, Wes Pudsey & The Sonic Aces and the Cope Street Parade.
The free event brought people from all around Australia with some of the bikes being hauled down to Sydney from Brisbane for the event. Featuring never before seen bikes from the likes of RB Racing, Mean Machines, Red Star Garage, Rene9ade Custom Motorcycles, Rocker Classic Motorcycles, Deus, Shed – X, Evolution Custom Industries and Desmoclinic just to name a few. There were no right or wrong ways to build a motorbike the wonderful and the wacky where on show with the vibe and enthusiasm staying strong until the early hours of the morning.
The 50 custom motorcycles on show were appreciated by the wide-ranging enthusiasts, from devout Café Racer experts to rockabilly sweethearts. We can’t wait for Throttle Roll 2014.

If you are in Perth and would like to see an event like this happen here, let me know and I might just organise it.
How would you classify this custom bike, is it a street tracker, a cafe racer, a brat or something else?

Remember Mike from Canada and his AMAZING CBX1000? It was one of the most popular bikes I’ve ever featured.
Mike sent me some pics of his ex. The Japanese custom shops punch out some amazing SR’s (I’ve featured a few here) but Mike’s SR is as good as ANY.
Sure the red frame, red engine, red carby, red everthing is over the top but (and I can’t believe I’m saying this…) it’s over the top in a good way.
If you think the pictures a good, read the story behind the bike. The muffler is originally from a Toyota Camry!
“While my, beloved, SR has moved on ( whereabouts unknown) here are a few shots of it; Highlights (?!)

Got a submission form http://shootfromtheship.tumblr.com/
Looks like some quality work and cracking fun to ride with those bars.
Got a couple of special bikes coming up so keep the submissions coming guys.
“This is my ‘78 Suzuki GS550. It was completely stock when I got it from a friend for $800 a little over a year ago. I’ve done most of the work on it myself, with some help from a friend who’s a mechanic. She’s a little dinged up and a little funky, but I love her.

Found these two gems downtown Chicago on my way to Millennium Park. I’m personally a fan of the red one. Something about its small stature really attracts me to it more than the blue racer.
I’m with you, I’d be happy with either but I’d prefer the red one.

Saw these design concepts on the racing cafe blog.
There are a quite few custom Yamaha SR250’s but this is comfortably the best I’ve seen.
We are about to release pics (when we take them!) of our very different SR250 brat.

You’ve all seen the bike before but you probably haven’t seen these pics of it. This bike has inspired sooo many others.
