Anything is possible with enough motivation and money ... But you might want to save the time and money and just buy a used 1000 Sport.Hello, I'm thinking to buy a 900ss i.e. to transform in a Cafe racer, but all cafe racer SS based I have seen are from old SS models (carburetors), why this?
Have you got pics of cafe racer based on SS i.e. models?
I agree, for what it is worth. It is all personal opinion, but I think a "cafe racer" is more of the carb era bikes. The Monster and Sport are probably better bases to start doing an old school cafe racer. They are naked to start with and the IE models have ugly wiring etc.Anything is possible with enough motivation and money ...

I've seen your 748 'cafe', haven't seen anything 'half decent' about it tho - HA!If I can strip down my 748 and make it look half decent, you can certainly get an SS to work...
Well thx for the apology/compliments but it really was no biggee, everyone's taste differs... case in point I think the bloody thing actually looks much better in that first shot (HA!) and ultimately I was planning to do this to it, which I'm sure lots of people would hate : )It looks a million times better from that angle when you can see the whole thing sitting at normal ride height. It's like a completely different bike.
I gotta say I stand corrected a misjudged it big time. It looks very well proportioned and pretty damn sleek.
The all black pic to me still just looks cluttered, but maybe that's because its tied down and everything is so close together or bad angle or something.
Didn't mean to insult, guess I did come off pretty harsh lol. I'm glad you threw that second pic up though. Set me straight with that one for sure.
Now that's just freakin' HOT.The bike below is my favorite SS cafe job ever, it's a carby bike but same could be done to an i.e. - the carby gas tank drops right on to an i.e. frame, no problem. This bike/look incorporates a significantly modified carby tank tho:
