"If you're a biker of the '60s. cafe racer or not, you'll lap this book up. With plenty of photos and anecdotes galore, if you're simply interested in what makes motorcycling special, you'll like it too!" – Motorcycle Rider
"Photographs there are in plenty, the b/w pics of the sixties are to me especially interesting …" – Nacelle For anyone who lived through the motorcycle culture of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, or even those who didn't, the book is packed with info and images related to cafe racers and the Rockers who loved them. With a stack of black & white photos liberally scattered through its 96 pages, the tome traces the origin of the cafe racer and the rebellious spirit that went with it, going on to detail the uptake of the style by manufacturers themselves." – Motorcycle Trader

Description du livre Veloce Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. État : New. 204 x 190 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Cafe Racer captures the very essence of motorcycling, with its stripped-to-the-bone styling and a timeless blend of cat-quick chassis, matched to a barn-storming engine. From its roots in the 59 Club, home-brewed specials and the creation of the Triton by Dave Degens, the Cafe Racer became the must-have Rockers motorbike. It then became the template for a new generation of fast road riders in the 1970s, with the rise of Dunstall, Rickman, Seeley and many more bespoke bike builders. The factories jumped on the bandwagon. Machines like the Moto Guzzi Le Mans Mk I, Ducati 900SS and the MV Agusta 750S all captured the spirit of the Cafe Racer. Then the slick, super fast, Japanese sport bikes of the 80s came along, and looked set to consign the Cafe Racer special to the history books. But a revival had to happen. The Ace Cafe London re-opened, bike builders as diverse as Wakan, Fred Krugger, Nick Gale and Roland Sands all began to create lean, back-to-basics motorcycles, but with their own unique twist on Cafe Racer heritage. From the Buell 1125 CR to the Guzzi V7 Sport, mainstream modern bikes have also re-discovered their street racing soul. Packed with previously unseen photos, machine profiles, interviews, and personal anecdotes from the glory days of Cafe Racer culture, this book takes a look at the enduring cult of the Cafe Racer, in all its ton-up glory.
