Café Racer


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.

Parilla Thrilla

Posted on April 25, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

This is one beautiful motorcycle. Parilla motorcycles only made motorbikes for 18 years so they are quite rare. The story goes that Parilla Motorcycles was started after a young man in Italy saw a Norton Manx and was in awe. He bought one, took it apart and measured it. Then sold it and started making his ‘Parilla’ bikes based on the Manx. Enough of the history lesson, let’s get back to drooling…
