2004 Triumph Bonneville T100 Cafe Racer

I know that I just posted another T100 that has gone through a cafe conversion, but I found this one and I really, really like it. While the lack of clubman bars or clip-ons is somewhat disconcerting, I buy the seller/builder’s explanation that these Norman Hyde M-bars are just plain more comfortable. And given the decent spec of the rest of the kit on the bike, I think we can forgive him that. And the overall look of the bike is just smokin’!

Some of the cool stuff on the bike includes the upgraded front and rear suspension, the horsepower upgrades (carbs and pipes specifically), and the overall low key cosmetic changes (seat, bars, and rear-sets). You can check out the listing for more details.

Currently, the auction is around $3,500 with just under 6 days left. This is an extremely well built bike with some top quality kit that will make the winner of the auction very happy. I think I will have to post a follow up after the close of the auction to see where it ends up…

1974 Honda CB350F Cafe Racer

While this is a repost here on the blog, it is also a relist on eBay.And this time it appears to be a no reserve auction which already has 1 bidder at $2,800. I’m sometimes skeptical of relists as I have no idea if it’s real or a scam. However…

In this case, I liked this bike so much the first time around that I decided to repost it anyways. And I even included the rest of the pictures I didn’t post last time. This is a very beautiful bike that truly stands out among cafe racers. Especially those of the home built variety. Here’s a link to the original post on 4/22/09. If you decided to bid this time, be careful, ask questions, and good luck.
