Shaken Fist – Kawasaki W650 Cafe Racer by The Garage Project

After searching the web for cafe racers I came across a fantastic website which had some beautifully crafted motorcycles within it’s pages. I got in touch with The Garage Project about a possible post on the site and swiftly heard back from a Mr Rex Havoc, firstly that is the best name I have ever heard and couldn’t be more fitting for someone who builds such beautiful machines. The bike featured here is just one of there finished projects and is based on a Kawasaki W650, TGP gave it the Cafe Racer treatment and stripped out everything that wasn’t needed and pretty much customised everything on the bike. I love the paint that they have given this bike with a nice bright green and gloss black tank. I adore the vintage look exhaust they have fitted and the beautifully made leather seat. They have very cleverly fitted the speedo into the top of the light fitting which is another reason that this bike has been loved all over the world.

The Garage Project is a custom motorcycle garage based in Perth, Australia and was created when a couple of guys were bored with the Perth bike customising scene. TGP said “It was either “bolt on bling” on sports bikes or the oh so overdone naked chick riding a fire breathing dragon fighting off a serpent with a sword in one hand and a skull in the other airbrushed on Harleys.” For there first custom motorcycle project the started with a Kawasaki W650’s and turned into an award winning flat tracker.
