I saw that bike just the other day. I don't really care for the tank much, or the cylinder above the headlight. It has been cleaned up nicely though.

But it was built by Lorenzo Buratti

That makes it special... Right? ;)

Looks like a bike that was built out of a bunch of left over parts that were just laying around & then christened with the catch all phrase of CAFE BIKE. ::)  Don't get me wrong... I can appreciate how well it cleaned up without the wires & cables running everywhere & the quality of the paint looks top notch, but it looks wierd with that tank. It just doesn't flow. You gotta dig that bottle opener on the kick stand though. LOL.
