OK gent I'm going to build the most expensive cafe racer using only HYPER priced parts on the web. But need your help :shock: only :shock: listings will be used and any marque is ok.

So far I've sourced a front wheel for $8500 :shock:

And the Tacho for $5000 :shock:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayI ... _631wt_941

Not sure if this classic CB400 tach & speedo set will do but at $12,758.23 aprox i might have to except :shock:

Helmet has been added at a reasonable $7000 :shock: :shock:

The wheel is in Portland, very close to water. The tach is in Miami, also very close to water.

I'll be interested to see if you find any of these hyper-priced parts in Kansas.

I've seen that front wheel. The guy that's selling it is a crusty old coot that yells, cusses and swears at his customers. He's very opinionated, and never hestitates to tell you how he feels about any subject you bring up. His shop is an old house 1920's era, and barely has walking room amongst all the stuff loaded to the rafters.

He, however, knows motorcycles better than anyone I've ever met. He may yell, but he's never malicious. He's in his mid-late 60's, and still races motorcycles after 40+ years. He's very kindhearted (underneath the gruff outer core), and has tons of free advice, and amazing prices and work ethic while he's working on your bike.

btw.. Portland is about 2-3 hours away from the coast, and is separated by a mountain range. We do get plenty of rain here, but it's not salty by any stretch.

If you decide to trailer it you're going to need a classy rig to do the pulling. This should at least meet the price requirements.

It just goes to show there is a market for just about anything out there.

I don't care if Don Garlets himself drove that car at one time, that is a ridiculous amount of money to pay for a rusting piece of junk.
