A Cafe Racer's Take On The Style

Smithy's work has been posted on here before, some may remember his NorBsa, Goldie motor in a Featherbed frame. He's also got a couple of Tritons, a Bonneville or two and other exotica tucked away in his clinically clean workshop.

Last year he happened upon a few rigid Trumpet bits and decided that a Bobber would be nice to have alongside the rest of the fleet. This is where he's at, at the moment, with a very understanding wife I'd say, paint hanging up to dry in the Living Room is a rare sight nowadays.

The Cafe Racer influence can be seen in his choice of wheels and the detail work carried out on the hubs and brake plates.

This is a build that will be worth waiting for, and the wait won't be long now. A different approach that will set it apart from most of the other stuff that's out there,...............and that's what it's all about ain't it?
