My Cafe Racer Build

I basically started this journey after I took all my fairings off and saw what a beautiful bike this could be.

My boyfriend and I rigged together a way to hold the lights on the back end, and I kept my controls and front fairing for quite some time.

Then we pulled some money together and redid the front. We put clubman handlebars on using Universial Motorcycle Bar Handlebar Mounts Riser Clamps and drilled holes through my triple clamp. This was a HUGE hassle, but I think it ended up looking pretty good.

I'm not your mom and I'm not paying for your parts, so do whatever you want with your own bike.

I just couldn't get the back end to have that "cafe" look. So I'd been looking at the website called Blue Collar Bobbers, and they make cafe kits for 15 or so different bikes including the pregen Ninja 250. As we were going to send them an email asking to buy part of the kit (just the back end) we realized that they're located 15 minutes from us. So we took a drive down there and talked this awesome guy into selling us the tail part of the kit for $400 since we were local and paid in cash. So that was pretty awesome. Here's how that turned out

That tail piece is freakin awesome. I honestly don't think most cafe racer 250's look good at all, but this looks pretty awesome. My main beef with the looks, though, is the tank, which is the case with almost all of these conversions.

Now that looks totally freaking awesome, can't beat that price you paid for that kit, are there any plans for the tank? And does the place where you got the tail from have a website?
