Not sure. Some are based on scimitar frames, some on herald. If it was on a spitfire or gt6, I would be struggling not to buy one... even though with a couple of fair weather cars already, it might be hard to justify another sunny day only car! edit: Think this one was a scimitar with a Ford v6.
Lose the gas guzzling unaerodynamic roof rack and you might be in with a shout! No self respecting cafe racer would be seen dead with one of those on, unless it was carrying a set of wheels with slick tyres to a dragstrip or trackday! The whole cafe racer ethos is down to paring the car down to the bare minimum you can get away with. Nothing goes ON that doesn't actively make it faster!
Perhaps if the thread title was California Speedster style - the same as the Foose E-Type - But a bling a ding ding hot rod is about as far removed from the Cafe ethos as a Volvo Estate IMHO
Cut down windscreen, hotted up motor, old school wheels, simple leather interior, decluttered bodywork. Seems pretty spot on to me. Maybe the fact it has been cleaned is confusing.
Listing the modification like essential Cafe Racer ingredients topped off with derogatory quip does not make the argument any more substantive - I see nothing "British" Style in it at all old bean. Its just well - not at all a "British" style its an American HOT ROD Speedster style - Cut down windscreen, hotted up motor, old school wheels, simple leather interior, decluttered bodywork perhaps the fact it looks like it has been done to an old British style sports car is confusing?
Is that an MGB? I'd love to do something similar with my Midget, but being in the UK can't afford to have a classic with no roof!
Looks more like a Fiat 124 Spider to me but as we never got them in the UK !
I think its a Honda? Is it? Id say its a Café speedster. Its got the flavour of a café racer, but its just a bit too bling. Its a bit like going to a Café and ordering a bacon bap and a fancy frappe-mocca-latte-lungo-chino instead of a mug of tea. Its still very bacon bap though.
