I came across this one the other day and was amazed. I used to own a Suzuki Savage and would have thought that it would never make an acceptable cafe racer.

I haven’t been able to find out who made it. The only information about it that I’ve found is in this forum thread.

Cafe racers galore

Posted by ifitsgotanengine on March 14, 2007

If you’re into cafe racers at all, this is a great time to be alive.

I particularly like the Triumph Thruxton. It has a 900cc parallel twin engine and sells for about $8000. Not bad for a modern take on a classic.

For a bit more, you could step up to Ducati’s SportClassic series, the nicest of which is the Sport 1000 S. It has a 1000cc V-twin and costs $12,500.

I’d be happy with either.
