Default Hi everybody!

I came to this forum because I became interested in building a café Sportster. I will post in the Café subforum with all my questions. I've never owned a Harley, but have owned Triumphs, a Norton, a couple of sixties era Ducati singles, and a few non-descript Japanese bikes. I'm sixty years old and it's been a couple of decades since I've had a consistently running bike, though I've had a couple of projects that never got beyond the riding around the block a few times stage.

Please see my post in the Café sub-forum. Thanks.
