Cafe racer look

Hi, I'll be buying a SCR950 in the upcoming weeks that is completely stock. I am trying to give it a slight cafe racer look.

Does anyone have any suggestions on specific pieces and parts to help me do that? For example the handlebars, should I just flip them over or buy a different bar? And what type of seat should I get?

Also, which slip-on exhaust do you guys suggest it to give it the best deep sound?

Thanks in advance

I'd suggest a tail delete and license plate relocation to the side. This guy should mount to the axle:

Get some leather for your SCR. Free shipping!
Set of 2 Pony Express Bags
Or get shorty on the left or right
Need under-seat storage? I've got you covered
How about a forkbag?
Know someone with a Yamaha Bolt? Spread the word about my new bag!

Unfortunately you won't be able to simply flip the handlebars since they have a crossbar, but you should be able to install a 7/8 sized handlebar fairly easily. I think the main concern is making sure you've got enough clearance for turning.

Throw on a small cowl or fairing and the look of the bike will transform right before your eyes.

It doesn’t really lend itself well to a cafe racer look, however goes well with a TT styling.

These are the type of handlebars I'd like. Does anyone know the brand or ones that would look like that?

I put this bar on my SCR and it came out great.. It lost the oversized moped look that came with the stock bars and immediately transferred to a Scrambler look. I also put on a bark buster bar. Ill send pics if you request
