A Cafe Racer Named- The GRIFFIN

1971 Cafe Racer, The GRIFFIN

Here we are with another cool classic ride.

This time, its a 1971 K series that I have changed into a fun Cafe Racer that you can bomb about town on and generally have fun with.

This has all sorts of cool parts on it.

It has my signature steel tank with inserts and will sport a Rocket 4 seat with my oval tail light.

This  also sounds great with the Ton Up performance 4 into 1 exhaust system and I love the sound this makes and power.

The bike has Clip-ons too and that is a fun style to have on your own road racer.

The rear has a chrome boxed swing arm and an original Boranni race rim with one of my drilled brake hubs to add to the flavor of yesteryear.

Just getting the upholstery sorted and she will be all set.

Everything works on this machine and I am sure you will dig the flowing lines of the bike.

The L.E.D. Taillight lets them know you are in front of them.

I hammered the tank and Aptly named this machine the Griffin and it is one sweet ride.

As you can see, I have now upholstered the seat with the classic snaps, this definatly gives this Racer machine the look of Yester Year.

The tank is painted with a Rich Dark Black and I have fitted a New Gas cap and a New Lock too.

The rear sets are tarozzi and function really smoothly.

The seat is upholstered and I have a New LED light on the rear and all wired, tested and functions great, yes, it does have running light and brake light.

Turn signals fitted to some custom Aluminum brackets I made and tested and work fine too.

yes, I hand drilled the rear brake hub too and then polished it.

The Exhaust barks like a scolded dog and this is one of my Ton Up performance systems and yes, it does have a removable baffle too.

I wish I could keep all the bikes I build but unfortunately I cannot.

The bike handles really well and has the stance that I like.

I just wanted to show you The Griffin, before the New owner comes to pick it up and ride off into the sunset.
