Found this cool video on the deus site. Riding a cafe racer on a salt lake is now on my list of things to do before i die! This is actually a salt lake in South Australia for all those people reading from overseas. Love the “Don’t fence me” in sound track…

Deus W650 Street Tracker

Posted on March 4, 2009 by Scott in Tracker. 1 Comment

I have fallen for street trackers in a big way, then spotted this great w650 on the Deus website and can’t get enough of it. I even like the NASCAR inspired colours. I normally like simple colour schemes like black on black but the colours work really well for this beautiful machine…

Davida pics

Posted on February 15, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic, Other. No Comments

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’!…

Heiwa Motorcycles Japan

Posted on February 9, 2009 by Scott in Brat. 1 Comment

A mate of mine recently purchased a Honda cd250. I had to do a google search to refresh my memory when he told me. Then I saw a shot of a Honda CD250 by Heiwa Motorcycles in Hiroshima which blew me away (excuse the pun). Check it out, it is the brown one below. Heiwa have so many nice bikes on their site I was frothing at the mouth like a rabid dog. Heres just a taste of their bikes…

Honda CB750. The Super Bike?

Posted on February 3, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic. 1 Comment

Apparently the CB750 was the first modern four cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, the term Superbike was created to describe the CB750. Imagine that, the cb750 is the original superbike. Respect.

I just read that Discovery Channel ranked the Honda CB750 among the top ten greatest motorbikes of all time, giving the CB750 third place. That is ahead of Harley Davidson, Triumph Bonneville and Moto Guzzi V8. Heres a couple of shots to get you excited (who needs viagra). I have a thing for black cafe racers at the moment…

Honda GB500

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

In the late ’80’s, Honda experimented with a number of very unusual motorcycles. The GB500 was one of them. It took its style from the old cafe racers – which is why i like it so much. One of the best things to come out of the 80’s in my humble opinion (and of course hyper colored tshirts).

The GB500 was a moderate success in Japan, but in the US sales were hindered by the American love for large engines and dislike of the fairly high price tag. Which is why it’s relatively rare bike and has a bit of a cult status.

Here’s a couple of pics of this 80’s classic. The first pic is from an old honda advertisement… Love the birds forming the honda logo.
