Sorry for resurrecting this old thread up, but ever since it was posted, I can't seem to stop wanting one of these. I had set my heart on a MK1 Escort or Caterham as a mid life/50 years old/mortgage finished pressie, but these just look great. (and the MK Escorts are silly money )
Last bike I had was 30 years ago and that was only one of these
Having keep popping back to this thread and looking at some of the bike on wrenchmonkees website, I really think one of these CX500 is on the cards. These looks just superb
Anybody else on STW built a cafe racer or contemplating it?
and how do you go about insuring them?
