Tom Coulter R80/100/7 1978 Cafe Racer
Tom has been gradually converting his '78 R 80/7 into a Cafe Racer. The project was started by John Kuhn of Lawrence, KS, who painted the bike, modified the Corbin seat, and did the engine work. The engine has been upgraded to R100 spec, featuring electronic twin spark ignition, optimizing performance and economy.
Tom has decided to keep the silencers the bike came with, some excellent Epco stainless steel replacements, very similar to the original items.
Tom has fitted a Dart fairing, FlatRacer fork brace and 5" stainless front mudguard plus a rear medium mudguard (6") fitted with a L564 tail light assembly. Tom has also adopted one of our Monza caps for his tank.
It looks very elegant and its lines flow very well in a understated way.
Tom is certainly enjoying is revamped ride on the Tennessee roads.
