Cafe Racers are as popular now as they ever have been. Standard bikes are transformed into streamlined cafe racers which look capable of racing a track!

What is a Cafe Racer?

Traditionally a cafe racer is a stripped down lightweight motorcycle which is modified as cheaply as possible to go as fast as possible. They were built generally by young "Ton up boys" using standard bikes to race with friends and rivals between cafes in the 1960's.

The bikes were usually minimal, anything not essential was removed to save weight, low bars were fitted and often a single hump seat. The rider wanted to get as low to the bike as possible!

What are Cafe Racer Parts?

The idea of a cafe racer is to make a standard road bike, into something a little more sporty. The most common cafe racer part is some low handlebars. Some use clip-ons, other ace bars, but the idea is to help push you down closer to the tank in a racing fashion. Other common cafe racer parts are hump seats, sweptback pipes, Dunstall silencers, rear sets and perhaps even an alloy tank!

Which bikes can be turned into Cafe Racers?

You can transform pretty much any bike into a cafe racer. In the sixties, the common bikes were British, the likes of BSA and Triumph, Norton were very popular, and still are today. However there is a new wave of Ton Up Boys who modify newer Japanese models. However, one of the very popular bikes for turning into a Cafer is the Triumph Bonneville. We stock a good range of Cafe Racer Parts for Bonnevilles, but you can also check out Dunstall Motorcycles!
