Café Racer Kits have announced details of their latest bike conversion kit.
Following the success of the Honda and Triumph kits, the latest offering turns Yamaha’s naked sports Fazer FZS600 into a TZ250-style street racer.
CRK offerings use bikes that were once popular and are now cheap second-hand steeds and the Yamaha fits the bill nicely.
A scruffy Fazer, with some road wear, can cost less than a £500, which makes it ideal as the basis for a conversion and spares are still readily available. No welding is required for the conversion, but the builder will have to chop off part of the rear subframe, which is replaced by a bolt-on flat mounting plate and covered by an old-style tail piece.
There’s a bolt-on number plate bracket and an LED combination rear light and indicator unit, as well as a nose fairing with all brackets needed to fit it.
There’s also a headlight, hugger, front mudguard, chainguard, rearset conversion kit and radiator shield, too.
Ian, from CRK, said: “Our kits are all designed to allow anyone with a shed or garage and some standard tools to build themselves a great special.
“We have had some customers with zero experience who had to go out and buy a set of spanners to complete their bikes.
“We also have customers who are more seasoned builders who have taken the CRK parts unpainted and then developed their own additions by fabricating custom side panels, exhaust systems and body panels.”
The Fazer kit costs £1800 and will be available from January. Visit caferacerkits.co.uk
