The movement, that is called cafe racers , was born in 1950s in the streets of England and it may be the most Influential motorcycle movement the world has ever seen.

The term cafe racer came to describe kids who hung out in cafes and raced fast.

One of the birthplaces of the cafe racer was London s Ace Cafe. There is a legend which says that motorcycle riders were racing from the cafe, after selecting a certain record on the juke box, and had to return before the record finished.

Since the scene for Cafe racer bikes is constantly growing, motorcycle manufacturers saw a new niche: the modern Cafe racer. These are bikes with a classic look, but with the technology of a modern motorcycle like modern brakes, suspension, fuel- and electrical systems.
