Hi all, I thought I would share my little project with you all now. A few months ago my friend and I bought a pair of 88 CBR250s with the plan of giving them a spruce up with a retro cafe racer feel and chucking them on red plates. Full of enthusiasm I stripped the bike down and started throwing out what I didn't want with a vision in my head of the great TT legend Mike Hailwood. The focal point of our bikes being 4 into 4 (or 4 into 6) megaphone exhausts like the ones found on Mike’s RC166. However due to a few setbacks, one being the prohibitive cost of a custom sump to accommodate said exhausts and the getting the bloody things made for less than a small fortune that idea has been put on the back burner. So now I am going with a more straight forward approach to the build and less racy but still the café feel. Progress has slowed quite a bit of late though and I am hoping that this thread will spur things along.
