French lessons

We love finding new cafe racer sites. We came across this french site called 299kmh.  Although we can’t speak a word of french (except for ‘cafe’) the pictures on the site speak the universal language of love. Especially these Norton Commandos. Worth starting a war for.

Honda CBX Cafe Racer

Posted on July 27, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Racer. No Comments

The Honda CBX1000 was the first motorcycle Honda produced with a six cylinder engine. This one is a Moto Martin CBX. Can’t find much information about the bike but I know Moto Martin are legends in the performance motor bike industry. The French company started by George Martin in the 70’s. They constructed special frames for powerful Japanese engines, 2 stroke and four stroke. There were generally several different kits. You could choose the system of exhaust or only the type of frame plus lots of other options. Anyway we rate this Moto Martin and love the look of those sexy CBX pipes.

VD Classic

Posted on June 14, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer. No Comments

The French are famous for many beautiful things. Like french fries, french models and now custom SR500’s. We love VD Classic and love the bikes they make. Especially their take on the Japanese classic SR500. We are big fans of the SR500 and even bigger fans of Cafe Racers. So to see VD using a lot of chrome and clip-ons is always a good thing. Also love the simplicity of their sr500 street tracker.

This Frenchman Jean Francois Vicente is a man of my own heart. After riding ducati’s and Velocette thruxton he wanted something a bit more reliable and then discovered yamaha sr500’s. The rest is history. Now he owns VD Classic that specialises in custom Yamaha SR500’s and lots of other classic bikes. Heres a selection of Sr500’s from his gallery… I love that SR scrambler…

Most English people I know don’t like the French that much. But I’m sure they will love what this French custom shop Mecatwin is doing to their English motorcycles. How nice are these Triumphs? Check out their website for more from these guys. Stupéfiant – amazing in french…
