Cafe Racer project 999
I got a hold of a nice 999 frame and subframe, axles, and forks.
Now, I've decided to start a cafe racer project, have been lurking but did not bite the bullet but I finally did.
I've been searching all over for an answer regarding to the engine. I do not mind buying a used 999 engine, but, is there an alternative engine to fit onto the 999 frame (as in direct drop in. I've read about the 1098 engine swap with mods to the frame) ? Say: an air-cooled monster 1000 or hypermotard 1100?
This will be a long-ass term build since I do not have the cash to play right away (i.e. buying everything at once), and as of right now, I only have the skeleton of the bike. Does anyone have sites/places for me to call in to check?
