Gumby Chuck is quite the fabricator and has made the clip on bars stainlees, custom exsht and trick headlamp its a bike that would be suited when done to blast down spearfish canyon when it aint bike week.It started out a 71 bsa scrambler with mods to make it into a canyon burner for that era of the bike (Ton up fashion /ace cafe)I am gonna try to finish her up and ride it and if I dont like it chop chop cut cut......Our own gumby chuck made the rear sets and I am gonna throw some cool hues on her and just see what happens.I guess she'll be my little twisty hunter...

Ok so in my part of the Ol' USofA it is officially 30 till the weekend is over so this should be at your home by now right? I love Caf'e bikes, I mean are they not the Euro answer to the bobber? If I could pull it my 72 Tiger would be in a Featherbed frame with a big ass polished tank. But instead the plans are to just make it a sorta cool street tracker/cafe bike.

Yes i kinda like the dirt 1/2 mile dirt track look I have even thought of going with that look on this if the Cafe look dont go well with me.I think the cafe bike has been around way longer to the brits than the bobber look anyhow.I would say the bobber term is from the good ole USA and startin right after WWII.I gonna have to do some research on the cafe bikes.But I really think street tracker look would be way cool for this bike also.
