Cafe Racer

Image 1 / 5

Directly responsible for today's superbikes, Café Racer refers to both a type of motorcycle and motorcyclist, who appreciates speed and good handling over comfort. Exploring the history, development and worldwide culture of the café racer, former professional superbike champions Ben and Eric Bostrom visit visionary motorcycle builders across England and America as they search for the perfect combination of style and speed. Challenging the builders to design, engineer and create their dream wheels from an older frame in the retro-style of classic café racers, the legendary Bostroms put the completed custom bike through its paces to see if it will live up to their impeccable standards. Featuring interviews with former British street racers and custom motorcycle builders, as well celebrity café racers including musician Billy Joel, this exciting series embarks on a full-throttle exploration of this fascinating subculture.
