    Hello Friend,

    Your zephyr looks really gorgeous, a perfect balance of the old retro style and your personal touch. very impressed by your custom part kit, it looks neat and professional and i’m sure it will be handy for apprentice builder (like myself). This result is inspiring, thanks for sharing.

    Best regards from France

      Great thanks for so hearty comment! I am incredibly happy that my works do inspire!

      In my turn I should say that I found France very inspiring. It is really a place where you wish to ride the bike again and again.

      Merci encore!

    Hi Nazar, very impressive indeed! Also great choice to work with the Zephyr, although it seems parts are hard to come by. I’m about to purchase a first bike to start a Cafe Racer project. Would you suggest to take a more ‘main’ stream model like the Yamaha XJ700 (or 900) or Honda CB 650 (or 750) to start with? Or does it not matter.. There is a nice Zephyr for sale here at this moment. How much did the whole project cost you, time and money wise?

      Hi!

      Thank you for good words! I suppose that Zephyr 750 might be more common for Europe than Yamaha XJ700 or XJ900 (which both are shaft drive so might be less suitable for customization) but it sure depends on region. However in its turn Zephyr 750 has quite specific frame that limits options on suitable tanks and side covers. SOHC Honda CB750 or CB650 or DOHC CBs or Kawasaki KZ750 (or KZ650) may give more room for creativity. Actually, it does for me:

      The main thing about custom motorcycle project is about fun, and less about money. As most motorcycles are in essence.
