Good Deal or Wouldn’t Steal: 1978 Honda CB750K
Do low bars make a cafe racer?
I’ve noticed a trend recently, of bikes being advertised as ‘Cafe Racers’, which often have little more modifications than the handlebars swapped out for low tracker or clubman bars. This generally seems to raise the price by $1500 on average. To each his own, but I don’t really think this qualifies as a Cafe Racer.

Good Deal or Wouldn’t Steal: 1973 Honda CB750 Custom
OK guys, check this one out! I was looking around for our new GDoWS post, and came across this bad boy on Craigslist. This CB is a pretty interesting custom build. The original ad is located here, and here is the description:
Good Deal or Wouldn’t Steal: Ryca Motors CS-1
OK we’ve got an interesting one here. Maybe you’ve never heard of Ryca Motors, or their cafe racer kits. The CS-1 is the Ryca Cafe Racer kit. It’s built off of a Suzuki Savage 650cc bike. You used to be able to pick these up fairly cheap, but I don’t see the Savages for sale very often any more. It’s a $1000 bike in running condition. The Ryca CS-1 kit is $2750. Overall, you end up with a pretty cool package and a nice looking cafe style bike. However, is it worth $5500? Here is the sellers info, and you can see the ad here:
Good Deal or Wouldn’t Steal: 1979 BMW R65 – $5500
I’m going to be posting at least one Good Deal or Wouldn’t Steal (GDOWS) post each week for all of us to argue about. I’m going to find an interesting bike for sale, probably locally but not necessarily. I’ll post pictures, price, and description (and link to the ad), and lets see what we think about the price vs. bike/condition/mods. Lets get started!
