Honda CX500 

One of our favourite café platforms!  This transverse mounted liquid cooled V-Twin 500cc is a work horse capable of 250,000km! Single colour paint, clip-ons, LED light package, custom exhaust, braided brake line, ACEWELL gauge, and rear seat/cowl.

Honda CB350/400 

This Honda platform  makes for a light, nimble, fun café  with the added bonus of low insurance rates.  The parallel air-cooled twin has loads of low end and by stripping 75lbs off the OEM model, it's a jack rabbit!  Solid colour paint, clip-ons, LED light package, custom exhaust, braided brake lines, old school gauges, and rear seat/cowl 

$4200 - $7000  HST  Incl

Yamaha Virago XV750-920 

This non-descript Yamaha cruiser from the early '80's transforms into one of the most beautiful high displacement café's in the world.  The exposed  air-cooled finned V-twin motor along with the dirt tracker seat and Benelli tank are what make it.  18" Spoked wheels, LED lighting, bar-end mirrors, Acewell gauge, custom exhaust, K&N Filters

Honda VT500  

Originally launched by Honda as the single cylinder Ascot, this later beautiful liquid cooled V-twin model with 18" wheels really moved the model up the food chain and it eventually morphed into the Shadow cruiser which in our minds was a huge step back.  Custom seat and rear cowl, LED lighting, custom exhaust, single colour paint, bar end mirrors,

                                                           this bike is one of the lightest 500cc  machines

Yamaha Virago XV500  

Just like his 750cc & 920cc big brothers, the 

XV500 has the beautiful lines of a café .  The mono-shock opens the rear of the bike up giving it that forward motion look sitting still.  Benelli tank, LED lighting, bar-end mirrors, Acewell gauge, lithium ion battery. And, the 500cc  insurance rates sure help the cause as well.

Honda CB125/175

Options: custom paint, performance tires, engine mods

$1900 - $3200 Including HST

Suzuki 650 Savage S40 

Another Japanese cruiser from the '80's that targeted the entry level rider but as a café , it kills it!  At 290lbs and 48HP, it's mountain of torque and great looks, just puts a smile on your face on every ride. We can do the RYCA kit or build it custom.
