I like big old beasty cafe racers like this KZ1000 that Bill from Jersey ( I assume that’s Jersey as in New Jersey and not the Island between England and France) built.
They’ve got enough grunt to worm their way into your heart and stay there.
Bill sent me some crappy iPhone pics of his ‘81 KZ1000 and I’ve tried playing with them a bit. The last drawing is by muchomoto who you can follow on instagram and tumblr.
"Hey, here’s some before/during pics of my garage project bike. All the work was done by me and my best friend, machinist, welder and soon to be bike builder @_diso_ ."
You can follow Bill on instagram @bill_kz1 & @_diso_ and you’ll find their work by searching the hashtag #lowbarshighperformance
Look forward to seeing your next build Bill.
What a brilliant little bike.
Honda CB350f if I’m not mistaken.

Here is @tinkererstales nearly getting his #kneedown on his #honda #cx500 #caferacer at #broadford #trackday. Josh reckons that if he hadn’t reason 5 meat pies for dinner the night before he would’ve knocked a second off his lap time. #stormtrooper #motorbike #motorcycle.

As it’s warmed up here in Perth and my bike has new rubber, I’m very much looking forward to getting out there this summer.
On the other hand, Mike in Canada is packing his custom CBX up…
"I’m sitting here lamenting the fact the -5C. temps are keeping me indoors. Last weekend’s, short, romp up north was an opportunity to ride in my first snow and ice of the season. Coming back home the temps hovered around 11C. so all was well. I snapped this not far from my place two weekends ago:
So as we hunker down in the face of a looming Canadian winter, and you lot prepare to enjoy your summer (bastards!), I thought I’d take a moment and say thanks again for the exposure you gave my writing and bikes this year.
Great stuff, and a BIG part of the memories that will keep me going until the snows melt away and we’re out riding again up here in the ‘Great White North’.
Take care, Rex, enjoy your summer.”

Natalie sent me the top pic so I emailed her and asked for some better pics but all I got was the bottom pic. Lucky I like it so much :)

A couple of weeks ago, Scott from Pipeburn saw a picture on my Instagram account of Craig’s Kawasaki KH500 and asked to be put in contact with him.
I said that Ryan from RSK Photography Perth was doing a photo shoot for a few Perth Cafe Racer members bikes and I’d send him the pics.
I won’t repeat the full story behind the bike as you can read that on Pipeburn.

Picked up #shakenfist from @brad_garageprojectmotorcycles who fitted new #pirelli #rosso tyres and replaced bent clipons. Went from a 160 on the back to a 150 as it used to rub the chain. Turns in before I think about it now. #motorcycle #caferacer #w650 #kawasaki
