This photo hypnotized me when i first saw it. Its the coolest ad for Coco pops I have ever seen. Packed full of 100% cafe racer goodness. Shot by Ben Part at Part B, his moto photography gallery is truly inspiring. He shot that timeless advertising campaign for Davida. Found this gem on the one and only Arsehole customs.

MV Agusta

Posted on June 4, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 1 Comment

MV Agusta are an old italian company that started life as an aviation company. After the Second world war they started making scooters for the demand for cheap transport. Their first prototype was ironically called ‘Vespa 98’ which they later learned was already registered by Piaggio.

They started making cafe racers in the 1950’s and 60’s. Then stopped making bikes altogether in the 80’s. The name has been sold and traded over the years and is now owned by Harley Davidson. Will be interesting to see where Harley take the company. Lets hope they keep the classic Italian soul.

Ducati Desmo 1975

Posted on May 24, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. 3 comments

This bike is a beautiful piece of history. Not only did it offer spectacular performance, it offered a set of features rarely seen on a sport bike. The four-stroke engine was able to satisfy the needs of any biker, including those interested in racing, without special customization (sadly to some like myself). This was the result of italian design and superior craftmanship, combining the potential of the twin-cylinder engine with the unrivalled mechanics of the legendary 750 ImolaBMWcycles just sold one with only 125 miles on it. Fresh out of the crate. Their site is worth checking out for other classic bikes for sale.

Jack Black on Track

Posted on May 21, 2009 by Scott in Classic, Other, Tracker. No Comments

Found this shot of Jack Black on what looks like an old Triumph Dirt Tracker. He is obviously paying homage to Evel Knievel. Thought I’d add a pic of the legend himself. Of course Evel is riding the all american Harley Davidson. Some of you might be surprised to hear that Evel Knievel owned a Honda Motorbike Dealership in the 60’s.
