Electrical short. We had been out on a rough day, put it on the trailer. Stopped for lunch 45 minutes later the waitress said the boat in the parking lot is on fire. The insurance did pay off and I bought the boat back to keep the power and drives I put in the Cafe. The boat was an old Coyote 34R race boat.

I think this is the cafe cigracer 38 is talking about

Cafe with 1000's & SSM 3's


I would imagine this has got to be the fastest cafe I have ever heard of. With that horsepower I would imagine it doesn't have trouble breaking the triple digit barrier. For that kind of coin I'd be looking for an updated topgun though, but it is a sweet looking Cafe racer.

yeah your right, id opt for a gun with all that money. i really like the cafe racer that is in oso classifieds. flag paint with 800s. real nice package. the rig with 1000s still have to do some work in the birth and the dash. i think he is asking way too much. this is why its a tough call to dump so much money in a cafe racer. gun i would, but cafe racer dont think so. i dont think ill ever get rid of my rig, id like to see me with a gun and my bro with the cafe racer. maybe next xmas....

we're still dialing my ride in, but last we ran it with 540s(not sure of the hp, im guessing 550-600) we got 69.5 mph out of it. spinning 26" bravo 1 props on those old TRS drives...

hope to see low to mid 70's when we're done.
