Phantom Cafe Racer


Posted on July 17, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Other. No Comments

This one off Phantom-Cafe’ racer is built on a 1980 Yamaha XJ 650 chassis with a direct drive shaft -replacing the early chain drive. The 650 cc motor had been reworked to add another 100cc to accommodate the added weight of the heavy chrome plated body. This custom design was built & owned by the legendary Mr. William L. Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell was best know for being the V.P. of the design staff for GM. He was responsible for designs that produced 72 million cars, including the Chev Camaro, Pontiac Firebird and his favourite the Corvette. We think his car designs are better but big points for originality.
