I'm bugging for a cafe bike but I don't have the desire to tear down a bike and make one for myself... And only one or two also-ran bike manufacturers are producing an authentic looking ready made cafe bike. The big four and more haven't really caught on and embraced them yet. The more I look, the more I realize I wish I could find one from a mfr that I know will be around after I buy it (shades of Buell...).

I've kind of been lamenting all of the themed Sportsters still falling behind in this cafe / tracker phase.

And then this drops,

I'm now thinking that this,

Might make for a pretty fun, albeit a bit expensive, bike. The Roadster comes with a nice solo'ish seat and dropped bars right out of the box. Better bits and suspension travel. The only thing it really begs for are rear set controls - and that is finally an option.
