Cafe Racers are lightweight and performance oriented motorcycles designed for speed and handling. Their bodywork and control configurations are a nod to the 1960's Grand Prix racing motorcycles. Cafe Racers, known for their minimalist approach: featuring clubman handlebars, seat cowling, and long narrow fuel tanks.
In the mid-1970's a number of manufacturers took notice of the cafe boom and started releasing factory café racers. The distinct aesthetic and ergonomics of these bikes push the demand for vintage cafe racer parts even higher. The styles are still very relevant today and can be seen across the world as owners of vintage machines strip them to bare essentials and install parts to replicate the cafe racers of the past.
