    Hi there!

    I am new in Bangkok and would like to start a cafe racer project. I don't know much about mechanics, and would like to learn along this project. However I have no motorbike, and want to find a wreck because I don't have quite a big budget now (yes, you understood : I have no knowledge, no bike, no money ... but a lot of motivation!). :smile1:

    So if any of you could provide me with good places to find a wreck, or any tips for learning how to build your own bike, or useful address in Bangkok ( garage, motorbike clubs ...), it could be a very good start!

    Thanks a lot,

    I look forward to start!

    Thomas

    There should be lots of cheap wrecks in Bangkok, and this youtube channel has lots of tips on how to build a real cafe racer:



    Here's a good place to start:

    ^ Exactly, you could probably find all the parts for a complete bike!

    Cheers,
