1979 Yamaha SR500 Cafe Racer

Ahhh. SR500. Always a good, clean-looking cafe racer. Not much else to say. On eBay. 11 hours left. 21 bids, $2,100 dollars. Bid by tomorrow morning if you are interested…







Homemade Café Racer Seat (CB750 or ???)

Here’s a pretty cool homemade cafe racer seat. Made with a steel pan, it should be plenty strong regardless of what bike it is on or how it is mounted. The riveted and polished aluminum rear cowl is a nice touch. Better yet, you can tell your friends you made it yourself!

Currently at $76 on eBay with about 4 hours left…

Cafe Racer Seat for Yamaha SR500 / SR400 or ???

I’ve posted products / bikes by these guys before, but this is the first time I’ve seen this particular item. It is a nice cafe racer seat for a Yamaha SR. Their shop specializes in SR400 and SR500 bikes, but I’d have to guess that this seat would fit on other machines as well. Again, this company is located in Bangkok, the fact of which is not a problem in and of itself, but would make shipping times a bit longer.

Right now the shop doesn’t have any other items posted on eBay, but the polished aluminum tank is something they post fairly regularly. There are also a pair of rear-sets at the bottom of the page that are probably for the SR shown in the pictures. They seem to have a connection with a company in Japan that sells them items with cosmetic blems or fixes, and then they sell it on eBay. Items in the past have included other seats, a complete bike, and gas tanks that have extra welding on the under side (reason unknown, but I would assume a production error leading to a welded in patch).

Bangkok Cafe Racer

So I was surfing this morning, and I came across this bike. From the listing, it appears to be a ’98 SR500 with a bunch of cool retro components making it look like something of a much earlier vintage. I really like the tank and the front brake.

If I wasn’t a little bit freaked out by the fact it is located very far away, I would be bidding. It’s currently at around $300, and shipping is claimed to be about $650 to the US. Still, I like the bike, and really like the sales pitch. “Moreover,he making u more charming in the classic style,too.” Great! I need some help…
