Always been a cafe style lover, but of late I have been really drawn to the boardtrack racer style of bike. While I was living in Canada, I came across a mob in Califonia (Mailbu Customs) that sold the exact style of bike that I was after. Now last week I also seen the same frame now from a mob back home in Aus in Vic. Now the style of bike I am after isnt availble off the shelf, so I have resigned myself to the fact that I will have to build or have built my dream bike.
Which brings me to the age old question, is it worth it? The roller that I am looking takes a pan, shovel or evo engine. I am not fussy, I am happy to purchase a donor bike and reco engine, gearbox etc. if its required and use gear off that bike. Or purchase new gear if its at the right price.
I did some searches on here on rego, engineering etc. but I didnt find a lot of information apart from the fact that its a long drawn out process, and some people have been burnt by the process.
The better half has resigned to the fact its going to happen and asked that a little change out of 25k would be nice.
Is that enough, if no what do you think a build will cost. I am not into bling, infact the chrome thing isnt me at all, looking at mid range gear, but keep the build neat. Not a drag bike, not a race bike, just a beach cruiser.
Am I dreaming?
If that's the style you like, go for it.
Got to say though they do nothing for me.
I know there not everyone's cup of tea, but that's the look I am going for. I was more interested in people's thoughts on a build cost. Like I said pretty standard engine, I do love the Weber carb on the jelopy build so things like that interest me.
Impractible but cool to me
