I thought I would share with you all my latest project.
It is a Honda CT110, Postie Bike.

We call them Postie Bikes in Australia as our mail men and women use these bikes to deliver mail over the last 40 years. Honda made these bikes for the Postie with a couple of subtle difference to CT110s sold elsewhere throughout the world. Approx 35,000 were sold here.

The project took me 3 months after owning (storing) the bike for 4 years.

Cheers

Cool Dave, looks like a fun project. Very nice workmanship also. Bigger
isn't always better.
I'm not a big guy, so the Milwaukee Vibrators were always to heavy of a bike
for me, besides, I didn't like the image that went along with the big, bad, loud
bikes.and bikers. So I've been riding the mid-sized English bikes for most of
my life. As I'm getting older, loosing upper body strength and my coordination
isn't that of a younger dude, I went looking this summer for a lighter more agile
one-lunger for a town bike. I ran across a VERY low mileage (496 miles.) Suzuki
TU250 for the right price.
I would rather have found a 30.50 BSA Gold Star but they are worth their weight
in......Gold now a days.
I restored 5 of them for my brother about 40 years back for his collection of two
dozen bikes. He sold all of the Gold Stars to a guy that imported them to the UK
where they were getting very popular. I should have kept one of them, instead,
I took a '65 Thunderbolt for the restoration work I did!!!!!! Should have kept the
Thunderbolt also but needed the money at the time to buy tubing for the second
airplane fuselage I was building.

A good looking moped you build.
Only i don't understand the topic title...."Caferacer"???????I Always thougt a caferacer is a standard bike with a long gastank,racing seat and clip-ons?
To me this looks like a customized shopping bike.

The modern term of Cafe Racer is a neat bike you ride to coffee shop for a quick espresso, then off to the next for another coffee.

The MGA is a 1960 1600, CKD Australian made.

Overhere in Amsterdam we have also coffeeshops,but there is no coffee and your bike will probably be stolen..........smiling bouncing smileysmoking smiley

As a motorcyclist, I sincerely hope that this thread won't degenerate into a argument about what does, or does not constitute a "cafe" racer ... winking smiley

Seriously though, I'm really looking forward to seeing more pics as the build develops ... thumbs up

smileys with beer John
