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!
I used it to haul parts for the tat auction at this years gathering
I get it now, its definitely a café racer, a high end café racer. Didn't really get a proper impression of it until I saw the video, I love it. And I also love how my PC has automatically put the little tic above the 'e' in café. See.
So have all the Cafe racers shut down due to Coronavirus?
Any one got any new cars to share?
I quite like the idea of turning one of the BMW Z3 kits into a Cafe racer style car...
It won’t happen cos I’m a good boy, but with all that’s going on & especially the weather being so nice, I just had visions of jumping in an old open top racer & blasting through the countryside. Deep joy, even if only in my head. It then made me think of this song. You may not be into the music but listen to the lyrics (hey even google them) they are everything RR is about. The man who penned them only died in January this year RIP Mr Neil Peart
