The Cafe Side of Life.


When I began the '71 Bonneville project, it was for the purpose of building a Cafe bike. However, when I got into the disassembly I found that the bike was too original for me to be able to bring myself to cut it up as one would a normal Cafe build. So, the plan that I reformulated was to restore the bike and then Cafe it so that it could be switched back and forth from one presentation to the other with a weekend or so of work.




















What follows is the build for the Cafe of the bike.


There are several areas that are involved in the transformation. I have provided links to each area so that the viewer can select more information about that particular area as one's interests dictate.



Rear Sets


Exhaust Hangers




Seat and Rear Cowl
