Its nice to see the work going into tank and seat units on those bikes, not many places left doing stuff like that

Few folk in the UK will do one-off tanks etc.

I used The Tank Shop (http://www.thetankshop.com/) for my bike.
From the website looks as if John is thinking of retiring.
Guy in Inverness did my one-off exhausts and fabrication work so these people are there. It is funny how as you start getting into a one off build you start to unearth them.
On a boy's trip yesterday we were just discussing how we liked motorcycles which had just enough to make them work and nothing more and it seems the cafe racer look is making a big comeback again.
I know this (http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/Custom%20Bikes/beveltech_ducati_desmo_project_b.htm) has been posted more than once before but I make no apologies for using any excuse to give it more publicity.

Definitely seems to be a bit of a movement to customise old Jap twins.
Lots of old Honda CBs & similarly desperately unfashionable things getting transformed.
I like the Bike EXIF site & there's an Italian website called Cafe Culture or somesuch with intriguing things on it. Best avoid the latter if you're offended by the tattooed naked ladies who pop up here & there.
Shows that there's life beyond the Carbon/Termi/Akrapovic prevailing orthodoxy.
