By far the most important and difficult choice you will have to make before building a Cafe Racer is the selection of a donor bike. Back in the fifties Cafe Racers were a kind of Frankenstein creation, taking 2 bikes to make one, pairing the most powerful engine with the best performing frame and suspension set up.

But these days motorcycles have benefited from decades of racing development and technological advancements which means such transplants aren’t necessary (but not out of the question). Building a Cafe Racer from a modern bike is more about cutting back on unnecessary clutter, dropping weight, improving handling and unlocking potential horsepower…and of course some classic styling cues.
