Ryca Motors (http://www.rycamotors.com/) have found a very cool niche. Offering a CS-1 Kit costing between $2,600 to $3,000 which converts a Suzuki S40 -aka Suzuki Savage – into a lightweight, reliable, and fuel efficient Cafe Racer.

All parts are included and they have sold 300 of these kits with 95% of them being built by customers in their garage in less than 48 hours!

What you need:
Suzuki 540 (average price with low miles is 1200/$1500 and eBay is full of them)
some hand tools.
Instructions included via downloadable PDF
no welding required!

Can anyone do better for a total assembled motorcycle costing less than $5000. Ryca Motors (http://www.rycamotors.com/).
