airhead cafe racer project


this project was always going to be about building a traditional cafe racer, a fast, big bore aircooled bike and then, as i sat back and thought about it, well, let's just say, i had a bit of a re-think, yep, traditional looks but with a twist, i was originally going to use a big, trad, chrome cafe racer headlight, but, sorting through my 'treasure' i discovered a couple of 'projector' light's, i've always lusted after a treble-nine' ducati with their stacked headlamps but never been able to afford one, so, i dug these beauty's out and offered them up, perfect, off-set too, look even more cheeky, just got to figure out a bracket to mount them, too 'busy' and it will kill the effect i'm after......

  1. Got to say, I prefer the first, (traditional), light, and the bracketry on those projectors is going to be a pain in the ass, oh for a set of sky hooks!
