Default Zero budget mini cafe racer

Inspired by the good folk at www.returnofthecaferacers.com, I thought I'd have a crack at zero budget building.

Bought a little RS100 for one of my kids about three years ago, but its been sat at the back of the shed ever since. Had a rotten seat and a worn out kickstarter gear, and I managed to pick up a very cheap GS125 in the meantime for junior in the meantime, and his younger brother won't be seen dead on something 30 years old, the ungrateful little goit.


So I've dragged it out, slapped a pair of ace bars I had in the shed on it, used a the pillion pad off a jap sports bike I found in the road a while back as a seat, next step is to fabricate a seat hump from a three quid bit of alloy sheet I bought at a classic bike show. I'm thinking maybe a little mesh fly screen and a chequered flag type graphic.


Anyone know if RS100's can run on petroil mix? I'd like to ditch the oil tank and hide the battery to make it more spindly...

Total budget so far, Bike 65. Red spray can 2. Alloy sheet 3.

Thought it might be fun to aggravate the neighbours with a cloud of blue smoke.

Really needs a 70's jacket in a garish colour and some derriboots to go with it...
