As strange as it may seem, but we have never met before cafe racers made based on the Yamaha XS500. So today with great pleasure that we present to you the work of a guy from Philadelphia Sichoki Ted (Ted Cichocki). As Ted admitted himself he likes to create motorcycles than for them to ride. It all began with the fact that Teddy sold his Yamaha V-Star 650 began to look for "material" for the alteration. Inspired by vintage view cafe reyserov , he chose Yamaha XS500, the man who sold the motorcycle lived just a few miles from Ted's house, and he bought it for only $ 200 – it was fate.
According to Ted all that you and I can see other than a motorcycle chrome and powder coating work of his hands. It is not possible to list all the improvements and alterations made by Ted, and whether all this is necessary, we have the opportunity to see themselves working Philadelphians.
To build a cafe racer took about $ 3,000 and two years, in fairness it should be noted that Ted worked only on weekends, and most of the money went to the purchase of semi-professional equipment.
