Scott Radabaugh’s 2019 Kawasaki W800 Café
and 2003 Ford F150
Nothing says “fun weekend” quite like a Truck & Café Racer combo!
After completing a custom café racer to help raise awareness of Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH – genetically causes high cholesterol affecting 1 in 250 people), it needed a matching truck to complete the combo. The bike 2019 Kawasaki W800 Café was created to help raise awareness of FH.
The truck is a 2003 Ford F150 Craigslist “barn-find” without the barn. It was dirty beyond belief but had a solid engine and body for $5,000. It’s had a seats-out cleaning, soundproofing and restored interior. So far it been lowered, exhaust work, drilled/slotted brakes, small engine mods, new wheels, cowl hood, Ford Lightning front-end and a 100th anniversary Harley Davidson edition inspired vinyl wrap.
The F150 could use a few more ponies to haul a$!; but it hauls the café racer perfectly to either car shows or bike shows. This combo is a ton of fun! – Scott Radabaugh
