I want one of those really bad. The guys here in downtown Charlotte are killing it with the cafe style conversions. It's becoming a complete subculture in the NODA area. No license, no registration or insurance needed under 50cc here in North Carolina.

Distracting Toys...

Yeah, itís crazy! Iíve seen setups that blew my mind! I had no clue what it was all about when I got mine.

This guy setup a garage sale at a vacant home on my street, and so I went by to see what his deal was and at the end of the day he wasnít hurting anybody. He sold me the bike for $40 bucks.

The condition that it was sold to me was what they call a ďrollerĒ, no engine, no tank. That tank the hardest part to find.

Everything is original though.

I've always liked (read: would own one at any cost) the E31 8 series... and then I tried to get in one. @ 6'8"... it was less than comfortable, and my dream was crushed.

So here is my current distraction. E61 530xi, and in the future to be an E61 550i. Oddly enough, both were bought for $1200 apiece.
