    A TVNZ WOF?!?? That's a lot of acronym to start with, but is that some sort of reality program thing?

    So he's bought a hardly. Surely that nasty piece of shit (the cb) is the bike you'd keep in preference. Story doesn't ring true. . .

    people confuse the evolution of c
    hoppers, if the tanks up there it's to tuck the knees in tight and should also have the real narrow sisco bars, these two features allowed bikes to squeeze through the narrow streets in san fransisco when the americans had that craze of having the wideest cars in history.
    a lot of people didn't build choppers cause they wanted them, they made them for a purpose!!

    Interesting but that would be back in the mists of time when things were done for more or less sensible reasons. In more recent years we have abominations like the Orange County Choppers where they went shopping with a trolley and bought a collection of parts and assembled a bike that didn't go, didn't stop, didn't handle, was as uncomfortable as fuck, and looked like shit. 'Each to his own'? Or maybe 'a fool and his money are soon parted'?

    This thing's been at red baron for over 3 years!

    You'd think they would have dropped the price by now.

    You just put "Red Baron" and "dropped the price" in the same post.

    Maybe Trade me should have a program where if you type in the words 'cafe racer' someone arrives at your door to slap you silly.

    Yep I've seen her in real life when my mate bought an rs125 from them, she was pretty rugged the pics are blurred for a reason

    My mate also rung up to order some fairing screws and they asked him to send a photo of what they looked like!
