What I really want

is a caff racer type seat unit for my R. I think that would look triffic.

Jus sayin.

http://dr-mechanik.com/galerie/v-rod-cafe-racer/

A wellknown German bikemag "Custombike" followed the construction in several articles, I just found these links here:
http://www.rockandroad.de/motorrad/t...racer_112.html
http://www.rockandroad.de/motorrad/t...eil+2_114.html

A lot of work went into this project, it once again shows that anything is possible if you have budget and/or skills. One day I'll have my footpegs backwards and the clip on handle bars!
A cafe racer seat shouldn't be too difficult either.

Not exactly a "bolt-on" tail section, but a similar tail can probably be made to work with a stock frame/fuel tank with the right skillz...

Yeah that works except I wouldn't do that to the swingarm (don't want monoshock) and the front is raked out too far cos they never started out with an R. Do'h!

Mono-shock with extended swing-arm looks good....but the exhaust would burn your inner right thigh/calf. Gravel & road debris would spray your face w/o front fender.

He does really good work , although many complain about this:

Delivery time on tank orders at the moment is 40 weeks
