His latest bike is this stynning café racer, based on the T3 California. The California was a touring machine popular with police forces: a good bike in its day, but a little too ponderous compared to the BMW R90/6. So Budde immediately put the California on a diet, dropping the dry weight down to 180 kg (396 lbs) and removing three kilos of unwanted metal from the frame alone.
The motor was upgraded to Le Mans 850 specs, coaxing 76 hp out of it, and fitted with a heavily modified fork from a Le Mans Mk III. All the custom components on this bike were crafted by hand, and Budde even modified the few aftermarket parts he fitted—such as the Tommaselli throttle control—to match the overall look. In keeping with the minimalist theme, he also wired up a simple electrical system, including a Motogadget instrument, electronic ignition and Dyna coils. \
