Café Racer TV

I just got around to watching the first two episodes of the new Café Racer. I love my DVR

I have to say I really like the new format. So far, they show two bike builds each week and they have been good.  In the second show, build number one was putting a modern Kawasaki Ninja engine into a Classic Honda CB750 frame.  Build two was the taking parts of a Harley Davidson Aermacchi and creating a café bike.  Both turned out fantastic!

If I had one complaint, and I really don’t, I would like to know how long it took to assemble the bikes, was it a week, a month, months?



According to several other websites Yamaha will be displaying a café styled motorcycle built from their Bolt platform. Yamaha is rolling out this concept bike to show off what owners can do via “garage modifications”.

I like the look of this bike, as much as I like the look at the Harley Sportster (imitation is flattery, right). I have seen many Sportster café bikes and they look cool as well. The big thing I get from this is that the café scene is going; maybe it will get as big as it did in the 40 years ago.

The bike is going to rolled out at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, maybe it will come to some US shows afterwards.
