New bike blog

Well, I just read a blog comment about a folder I made at flickr, praising my taste in semi vintage Japanese bikes, so I figured "why the hell can´t I do my own blog about these bikes."

I just started to build my first bike. It´s a 1981 Suzuki GS450 that will be bobbed/caffeinated or at least done my way. I do regret selling my 1975 Honda CB500, but what the hell. I can always buy a new one later on if I continue to miss it. The Suz fitted my wallet perfectly right now.

I will post project pictures here, as well as link or pics of bikes/people that have inspired me.

First off is my bike as it looked when I bought it. Not a pretty sight even if it was in a decent state for a 27 year oldbike.

It does look a bit different now as I have done a few thing on it. More pics later.

For inspiration I do visit a few blogs.
The one that inspired me to start this blog is The Return of the Cafe Racers.
I´d love to get that road as my background pic as well.

Well, there are my danish neighbors the Wrenchmonkeys that build beautiful bikes, surely inflensed by Bratstyle.
