Custom Cafe Racers and Financing the Purchase of a Motorcycle
(Long Beach, CA)
Honda CB550F from Benjie's Cafe custom built by Sarah T. from Washington. I want this bike or one very much like it.
Two parts to what I want to discuss.
First, I'm interested in getting a custom cafe racer. In particular I really like the look of this beauty that Sarah T put together that I've attached. However, I'm thinking of a Honda CB 750 for the base.
I'm in the Los Angeles / Orange County area of SoCal and can't seem to find anyone who I can hire to put this bike together for me. I've emailed several shops (Garage Company, Vintage Honda CB, Nostalgia Speed & Cycle) with no response. Does anyone else ride a custom cafe in this area who knows of a place, that has personnel experienced with building cafes or classic Hondas or both, that they can recommend to put together a bike for me?
Secondly, I'd love to hear from anyone who has experience with getting their bike purchase financed. I think I found a credit union who will do it but I want to know more about what I should look out for before I commit to getting financing through them. Any tips?
