Does anybody know anything about the BEAUTIFUL bike at the link below. Here is the text version, in case I messed up on entering the link (http://caferacersociety.blogspot.com/search/label/Restorations).
I am interested in the third one down, the Bonneville with the red & black tank.

I love the look of it and am interested in knowing the components used.
I am building a T140V cafe racer and would love for it to look like this when complete.
I think the seat is a Corbin, but I am really interested in the front end, especially the forks since my bike has 4" overs from a previous owner. I am also really interested in both wheels, brakes, and the fenders.

ANY help would be great!

Thanks,
Dave

Hey Dave,

Welcome to the forum. Nice looking bike you found there. As for
the parts, that does look like a Corbin seat. I have seen the rims
before but I forget where, I will keep an eye out for them. The
brake rotors maybe custom made, but not sure. The fender just
looked bobbed.

But that is all just guessing. Have you tried a more direct approach
with this. I mean most motorcycle people love to talk and are
rather friendly. Maybe the people who built this bike can help.

RPM of Texas:

You maybe just surprised by writing, you may get the answer you
need.

P-bear:

How did you know that RPM in Texas built this bike?

I will definitely contact them now that I have that lead.

THANKS,
Dave

Hey Dave,

Anyone can spot a RPM bike from at least 200 feet away, duh!

Or could the truth be.....

True genius is not knowing all the facts, it is just on how
fast on can access information. I just followed the links on
that page you gave backwards to the home page where the
picture was listed. Easy, right? Plus the header above the
top picture " Gallery: RPM Cycle Restorations" or something
like that.

So choice one or two on how I know.

PS, I would believe the second choice as to how. I am lucky
I have the only Triumph in town or I would never find it in the
parking lot!
