  1. Hi all, names Pop. Sydney gent. Been riding bikes for around 7 years. ATM i am on an 08 BMW g650xmoto and i am building an old 85 r65 airhead into some sort of a cool, minimal, custom bike. The term cafe racer is thrown around a lot... I can not get enough of airheads.

    I have had the motard for about 4 months, loving it. So light, so agile, good vision with it being so tall. Its my only form of transport and weekend toy all in one.

    I will start a build thread for my r65 shortly. Plenty of pics, plenty of dollars going into it.

    Happy to be here... Pop.
  2. Hey Pop, welcome to Netrider. Good to see another project on the go!
    If you want some inspiration, check out the Runcible Racer thread; the old Black Bomber never looked so good!
