At the end of the fifties, the Ace Cafe near London developed into a meeting place for motorcyclists. In contrast to most radio stations, the jukebox played RocknRoll, the young savages hung out, talked about petrol and delivered illegal races on their way home. Of course everyone wanted to win. So the motorcycles were styled with racing parts, hump seats and narrow M handlebars were mounted and the Café Racer was born.
The motorcycle subculture created in this way experienced highs and lows again and again from then on, was finally displaced by the plastic-clad super sportsmen and women and is now celebrating a renaissance again. Like beards and tattoos, they serve the current longing for authenticity and simplicity. This magnificent illustrated book shows a cross-section of all epochs of the Café Racer, from the Clubman racer Norton Manx of 1962 to the latest Hamburg coffee machine 19 based on Moto Guzzi, and tells the whole story of the worldwide scene.
Beautiful Café Racer from all over the world from all brands:
Trackmaster Café etc.
