Welcome to my page on my project bike called...


The bike is named Cafe la Carte due to the fact I built it using selected parts from many bikes. Parts came from 19 different models most all heavily modified. Plus many fully custom made parts. All design, machining, welding, and modifications done by me.

Here is the final bike with pictures from late this fall.
