-Jumping in the deep end!
Hi all,
I'm 21 and just bought my first motorcycle a couple of weeks ago.
I worked as a bicycle mechanic for 3 years after graduating from high school, I'm now racing road bicycles semi-professionally and studying at Auckland University.
SO... I was in Philadelphia visiting my family (both parents are from the US) and had a ride on a CL200 my cousin has and thought, this is sweet! Before this point i had never even heard the term 'cafe-racer'.
So by the time I arrived back in NZ I had found a CB200 online, picked it up two days later and got stuck into it.
I am on a pretty tight budget, so I am doing everything i can myself. The plan is to completely rebuild and restore this tired rusty beast into a sweet cafe racer. I have already found many answers on this site, so thought I might as well join you all!
I'll start a project log an go from there!

Cheers,
Colin

There are a lot of good folks here more than willing to help you out with gettiing that bike running. I look forward to seeing your progress.
