I am very close to buying a used 2005 Honda Shadow Spirit in black. I like the café racer style better but the Shadow is just such and substantial and affordable bike. I would be willing though to invest a bit in modifying it. I know that a V2 and a cruiser frame are not really suited to be converted into a café racer but I am thinking maybe I could work on the saddle and rear fender situation, making the saddle slimmer and more straight and shortening the rear fender. Has anyone done that? Is that even possible with Shadow?
