As much as it pains us to say it, this post is the first bona fide post we’ve ever done on Pedro and the boys at Cafe Racer Dreams. By hook or by crook, we’ve never managed to get our hands on his sweet, sweet goodies while they were still box fresh. But never say never; please meet CRD’s latest and greatest creation, “sweet #16” – better known as “Atomica”.
Pedro tells us that the bike was built for one “Iñaki” and took about three months of his time to complete. It has a lithium battery hidden below the swingarm, the ignition is in the subframe, and the bike has been rewired. It also has reduced front fork travel and, as you can probably see, a special surf board carrier.
The engine side of things haven’t been changed too much from standard save for a rejetted Mikuni carb, a power filter, and a CRD-made pipe set with a baffle to decrease interest from the constabulary.
Other mods of interest include “Betor” forks, Beston brown grips, Continental rubber, Hagon shocks, and a raft of original CRD parts including fenders, seat, modded tank and lights.
Needless to say, we’ve ask Pedro for access to more of his materworks, and with any luck this won’t be the last of CRD’s bike you’ll see on these pages. In the mean time, you can whet your appetite for all things moto de España by visiting their website and Facebook page.
