Harolds gear in Japan make some great vintage looking jackets and gloves. Theres more on their website if you like what you see. I love their tag line on the website “The goods always belong to vintage spirit”..It doesn’t really make sense but I understand it. Deus stock their leather gloves as well.
Found this awesome poster on motorcycleclassics.com. Its a limited-edition reproduction of the 1926 Milwaukee State Fair National Motorcycle Championship. Why dont they make posters like this any more?
I went into Deus Ex Machina oxford st in sydney today to buy some gear and saw the sr400 grievious angel they have in store. That is such a sweet looking bike. I am sold on it. Going to make my SR400 very similar. Love the all black look. I took a couple of pics – they are from my iphone so not the highest quality…
Davida are an english company that make some great helmets, leather jackets and some other motorcycle products. But what i love most about them is the photographs they take of their products. They are modeled by beautiful women on beautiful bikes. Also they make them look retro which really suits the cafe racer look (These shots are from 2004). As Borat would say ‘Sexy time’!…
I am thinking the Deus SR400 TT tank might be the go for my Yamaha. I love the look of it on their Sr400TT. It’s made by The House of Wellington. Sold at Deus.

This blog’s name is inspired by this legendary cafe so i thought i should write a blurb about it. The Ace Cafe is full of history – it was originally built in 1938 to serve as a road side cafe stop for truckers using the new North Circular Road. It was open 24 hours a day – and being on one of the fastest roads in the country – bikers soon started to appear. It was bombed during the war then rebuilt in 1949 – it was the heart of the Mods and Rockers war – it was the home of Rock ‘n’ Roll and it owned the 50s. If you ride a bike the Ace Cafe was and still is THE place to meet.
Unfortunately the cafe closed it’s doors in 1969 and has been a bookies, a filling station and more recently a tyre depot – but importantly the building itself didn’t change. Then in 2001 Mark Wilsmore re-opened the Ace as a bikers cafe again – after years of work getting it off the ground. If you are ever in London it should be high on your list of places to visit. Theres always something on there. Live bands, theme nights and race meets.
