Cafe Racer TV has continued to spawn top quality Cafe Racers from the workshops being featured in each new series. One workshop that’s now made appearances in all 3 seasons is Loaded Gun Customs from Selbyville, DE and this latest build is the best yet. The Bonneville Cafe Racer named the “72 Mono Racer” has had a full ground up rebuild and one of a kind custom treatment that will undoubtedly raise eyebrows and induce smiles where ever it goes.
The most notable modifications on the ’72 Mono Racer are the changes to its suspension set up. The Triumphs OIF frame was altered to retro fit a Ducati swing arm and fully adjustable Race Tech GS-3 mono shock. Then at the front end of the bike you’ll find XS650, 35mm forks with Race Tech internals giving this vintage motorcycle handling characteristics that on par with most modern sports bike.
The Bonnies alabaster paint scheme is a mix of PPG white and 5 angle pearl. Soda blasted engine cases, polished covers and a selection of nickel plated parts have also gone in to create the look which is for lack of a better word, pristine.
If you’d like the chance to own this bike it’s up for sale on eBay right now. The lucky winner will have a short wait before it’s delivered though. The Loaded Gun team will be adjusting the bikes geometry and spring rates to ensure it will perform to it’s utmost potential with it’s new pilots own dimensions…now that’s a service I’d like to see all motorcycle builders offering!
