    Deuville bobber/cafe racer

    Hi folks,

    Here are some photos of My Deauville.




    More to follow if interested.
    Any questions please ask.

    How I built it, what I learned and what Id do differently.

    How do you like the shaftdrive - and shouldn't it be singlesided?

          Hi all,

          Well spotted, the seat and hump is from a monster. Heavily chopped up though.

          No issues with the shaft drive. The Deauville one is longer than the NTV single sider I think.

          The battery tray is from the original Deauville but again chopped up to loose the plastic mudguard bit but to retain the bit where the battery goes.

          All other electrics are on an aluminium plate mounted under the seat.

            One of the nicer Deauville builds we've seen.

              Ive since lost the big mirrors and got bar end ones on.

              lots of playing with the carb breather pipe since the build. Ive got it cut really short now sitting under the NTV air box to keep it in still air. The motor pulls like a train now, loads of torque, could almost be a turbo diesel ha ha.

                All the Hawk jetting knowledge should apply to that engine. Stage 3 jetkit and Pods for the win.;

                    Nice build.
                    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

                            Beautiful moto, very well done. Definitely a lot of attention to details on this one, like he said ^^^. Its a real shame you have to hang that huge yellow number plate on the tail. Not afraid to admit I went back to the pic of the electrical bits more than once either. Hard to believe this started as a moto sometimes called the "dullville". Not to look a gift horse... but it would be interesting to know some of the details of what you did. Thanks for sharing.
