Custom Buell Cafe Racer by Krook Street Racing


We found this interesting concept over on Krook Street Racing blog. Although the number of such “photoshop features” is growing in numbers on blogs around the world, we take each and everyone very seriously. Couple of things are very interesting with this type of motorcycle building: you can mix and match any part from any motorcycle manufacturer, and things can easily work together. And all that just to achieve very high levels of art satisfaction. Take this motorcycle for example, Krook Street Racing created motorcycle with an engine and other components they like, and then started sourcing part around. In the process, they found that Buell engines are proved to be on expensive side, and difficult to source. So they moved on…easy.

I have a mental short list of bike projects I want to try and one of them is building a really nice café racer. A month or so ago I found a Buell engine on the web that was for sale at reasonable money and I did what I usually do in these circumstances: I fired up Photoshop and tried a couple of ideas. Now, there is nothing at all wrong with a CB750 special or a nice Bonneville, and in fact I may come back to those bikes later on, but I felt I needed a bigger challenge. The Husqvarna tracker was challenging since most street trackers are either Harley/Buell, Triumph or Rotax engined. There isn’t very many Husky street trackers around. With that in mind I sketched a new frame and borrowed bits and pieces from other bikes to see how it could look. You find the sketches above [with and without bullet type fairing].

The scale and measurements aren’t a hundred percent correct, but I still think it could have turned out pretty nice. For more info visit Krook Street Racing blog
