Et Tu, Brute? - Caesar Racer No.6

Ok after a lot of thought I have the name now and I rather like it "Et Tu, Brute?"- as the bike is a bit of a Brute if not a Brutus or a famous 70's after shave.  We have gone with the original Dyna mid-position pegs, and when sitting on it - its like a Sportster - rather comfy!
Colours - Burnt Orange, White, Black, and Silver/Metal.

Bike No.6 FXD Cafe Racer - Update

Just got the tank and rear cowling mocked up and its beginning to look the part.  The next big design issue is foot control location and exhausts.

Bike No.5 Othello Tracker - Getting There.

No.5 is getting there and looking superb - I have to admire the work of ImageDesign on the paintwork - it really is first class.  Picked up the last few bits for the bike from Shaw Harley Davidson this week - battery, a few clips and bearings and I hope by the end of the month it will be ready to fire up.  Then just need a nice clear dry day for a test run. - and then get it ready to show at the Ace Cafe Bike Show!

Bike No.6 FXD Cafe Racer

Well we are getting there, slowly but surely. I am trying to keep this bike as true to its donor bike as possible and trying to use more "genuine" Harley parts. I have added a Dyna chin fairing and quarter fairing (bought cheap on eBay) and I am keeping the stock rear shocks as well. But you can see from the pictures its slowly taking shape. I now need to consult my resident Shakespeare expert for an appropriate name for the bike.

Bike No.6 (No Name as yet)

Ok just been to see Dave about progress on Bike No. 6 and its coming on well. The basic frame is all mocked up and we are now going to create the new oval section stainless swing arm - which will eventually be highly polished.
Its a cafe racer style with slim hugger fenders on front and rear over 23" white rims, and some nice touches from the original FXD Dyna that it started as - engine, wheel hubs, forks, quarter fairing, chin fairing, lights, pegs - and probably stock hand controls too.
