28 Oct Cafe racer 2.0., much more than a classic motorbike
On this blog, we’ve already shared with you where and when the term Café Racer was coined. All it takes is to see a picture of an original Café Racer to realise it doesn’t have much to do with what we now consider to be a Cafe bike. This is because nowadays good looks rule over speed.
Back in the day, Cafe Racers were built as light as possible to make them fast enough to win races. Not anymore. What we want at present, is a good-looking yet functional bike to enjoy, not to race. What’s more, some people are even referring to a new era of Café Racer, where the Brat (flat seat) and Street Tracker styles are the most popular.
What’s really appealing about this new era of Cafe Racer is everything it encompasses. A plethora of classic elements have flourished, like apparel, festivals, specialised publications, documentaries, TV shows, etc.
This is the reason why at Bolt Motor Company, Cafe Racer specialists in Valencia, we have always believed that custom-built bikes are a lifestyle, especially if you’re into the Café Racer model. We pay tribute to the past, but we’ve upgraded it, by keeping the charm of the classic style and transforming it into something more suitable for our modern lifestyle.
We’ve adopted the concept of Café Racer into our philosophy, which is that each custom bike is one of a kind. Designed between our clients and our team of expert mechanics, our custom builds are made to be adored. Though the classic Cafe Racer style is still prevalent, some of our customers are also looking for something a tad more aggressive. No matter how you imagine the motorbike of your dreams, at Bolt Motor Company, we’ll help you build it.
