    yea i love the way they look but the motor style sucks after you get up to speed its feels real unsafe because the pistons go up and down at the same time,for that year modle.

    It's easy to make a real cafe racer.. just loosen the handlebars, swing them down, strip all the extraneous stuff off and "go for the century"

    Because 100 mph is quite a different thing on an older bike than a newer one.
