Hello everybody, or should I maybe say Konichi-wa! I have already introduced me in the german speaking part of this forum, but I thought it might be a good idea to also make an introduction here. My name is Mikko and I live in Norrköping in Sweden. Last Saturday I bought a used Estrella (1996) with less than 11.000 km on the clock. I added some mileage as the trip back home was 490 kilometers. My plan is to slightly modify my bike in café-racer-style. Lower handlebars seems rather easy to find, but rear set footpegs seems harder. Anyone who can give me a tip, or is just to start construct them myself?? Apart from the Estrella I have two Ducatis, one 750 Paso and one Pantah 600 SL.
Seems I have to make use of my garage friend´s connection with constructers/engineers then. A café racer with only 17 horsepower might seem like a bit of lunacy, but what the hell there are people that turn Royal Enfields into café racers (and the 350 version is just 18 bhp) :-)))
