BIRD OF PRAY. Hookie’s Evil ‘Crow’ Honda CB750 Cafe Racer

Posted on March 23, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

In just about every ancient culture that spans the globe exists a mythology around the crow, and it almost always leads to death. So imagine yourself sitting alone in the middle of the night, stopped at a red light in the bad part of town, when as if from nowhere this blacked out harbinger of death rolls up beside you…

QUICK SILVER. Stephen Brisken’s Ducati 900 SS Cafe

Posted on March 20, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. No Comments

How many 21-year-olds do you know with an amazing bike collection? The answer is probably zero. That’s because getting older seems to be a distinct benefit in the bike scene. In retirement many of us find ourselves in a position where those dream bikes we’ve always wanted are finally within reach….

JEWEL, BRITANNIA. Old Empire’s ‘Gypsy’ Honda CB360 Cafe Racer

Posted on March 15, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

When you’re as good as suffolk’s Old Empire Motorcycles you don’t need to go hunting for work. Hell, their incredible history of customising classic motorcycles has customers practically begging them to create a bike. And that’s what’s happened with their latest creation, a 1976 Honda CB360

GLAMOUR HAMMER. Wrench Kings’ ‘Anvil’ Honda CB750 Cafe Racer

Posted on February 27, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Restomod. No Comments

The 90s CBs are great for customisers. For a precious few years, we had bikes that retained the essence of those 70s and 80s classics while being (even more) reliable and now cheap as stale peanuts to buy. And now the older bikes are becoming rarer, it makes double the sense…

MIRTH, WIND AND FIRE. Mellow Motorcycles’ ‘C4’ Kawasaki Zephyr Neo-Cafe

Posted on February 22, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer. No Comments

There is something incredibly satisfying about being right, and if you’re part of the cafe racer revival, then by default you are. In the 1990s, some Japanese manufacturers were already selling retro remakes and industry experts thought this to be insane. Now Germany’s Mellow Motorcycles have proven them wrong…

WAR HORSE. David Meyers’ Majestic ‘Balios’ Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Posted on February 13, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

The parallels between riding a motorcycle and riding a horse are obvious. I’d argue that in a lot of ways, motorcycles are just the industrial revolution version of the good old Equus Caballus. In the 1850s, a horse would provide personal transport, you could use them at work, police would ride them as would soldiers…

HERD MENTALITY. Two Yamaha XV Cafe Fighters from Moose Motodesign

Posted on February 12, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic. No Comments

It seems pretty clear to us that there’s something weird going on with the Polish water. Forget fluoride or vapour trails; this conspiracy seems to make entire countries fall in love with certain bikes. Poland’s fate is undying love of Yamaha’s XV…

BOL’D OVER. Recast Moto’s Stunning Honda CB900F Roadster

Posted on February 1, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. No Comments

Some motorcycles perfectly reflect a time in history. And the early Honda Bol D’or is a prime example of it. All hard lines and pressed steel wheels, there’s something about it that screams late 70’s optimism and chest hair. But Belarus’ Recast Moto have just changed all that…

GULF COURSE. Kott Motorcycle’s Textbook Honda CB550 Cafe Racer

Posted on January 17, 2019 by Andrew in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. No Comments

While we’d argue that the Gulf Oil Fords and Porsches from the 60s and 70s are amongst the most beautiful racing machines ever made, it’s with a fair amount of trepidation that we click on bike submissions that have anything to do with the brand. The reason? My God, it’s been done to death

BAGS OF FUN. Nico Naeye’s ‘Brut Voorut’ Harley Super Glide Cafe

Posted on January 9, 2019 by Andrew in Bobber, Café Racer. No Comments

It’s time for an embarrassing confession. In the past, I have looked at some of the winners of the AMD World Championships and had a giggle. Or two. Hell, sometimes I’ve LOL’d, if that’s what the kids are still calling it these days. I’ll be frank – there’s some totally insane bikes in there. Crack smoking crazy…
