Café Racer, more than a customised motorbike

Today’s post is dedicated to those who ask themselves, ‘What is a Café Racer? Why would anyone want to have a custom-built bike?  Are you really going to spend your savings on a 30-year-old bike? Keep reading and you’ll understand why.

At Bolt Motor Company, Café Racer specialist in Valencia, when a customer enters our shop, we don’t ask them if they prefer a Bobber, a Scrambler or a Café Racer; nor do we get into technicalities. We simply ask them: what is the motorbike of your dreams? Some are proud to take out their mobile to show us some pictures or they produce a list from their pocket. It’s from that moment on that their dream bike starts to become a reality.

It’s clear that the love they feel for Café Racers doesn’t start at this point. Our clients have been in love with this type of custom bike for long. By doing some research and by trusting in the best Café Racer garage, they end up saving lots of money and are able to get their dream bike. The problem is that sometimes they have to confront their friends, partners, and other family members who don’t understand their passion for Café Racers. Many (unexplainably) can’t see the point in spending money on fixing, customising and tuning-up an old bike. Today, we’ll explain why having a Café Racer is so much more than having a stunning motorbike in the garage.

First, let’s talk about the evolution of Café Racer. This type of custom build was born in England in the ‘50s when small displacement bikes were re-built for the purpose of racing them from bar to bar. And of course, what better way to make a bike faster than by reducing its weight. Little by little, Café Racer competitions became more than a betting game where money, bikes, and even girlfriends were at stake. Little is left of this competitive culture. Nowadays, what we love about Café Racers is to stare at them and dream about riding one.

In the ‘50s, looks were sacrificed for speed and performance, but not anymore. Modern Café Racers must have a specific look, while engine power isn’t the priority. As we mentioned in our previous post, many manufacturers produce ready-to-ride Café Racers. However, a real Café Racer is built, not bought. Another thing we recently explained was that there are 3 options for having a Café Racer: being a handyman and building it yourself; buying somebody else’s custom build; or trusting in a Café Racer garage that builds you the bike of your dreams.

Nowadays, a Café Racer is so much more than a custom-built bike. There is a huge cultural movement surrounding Café Racers, and the number of followers keeps growing. Though more rooted in the USA and in England, in Spain things are evolving fast and there exist several Café Racer custom shops.

Let’s not forget that nowadays, when everything can be copied and mass-produced, having something unique that belongs only to you and that was 100% custom made is priceless.

If you’ve read this post and you still can’t understand why thousands of people go to bed dreaming about a Café Racer, open your eyes! It’s true that there may be more pressing things to spend your money on than a Café Racer, but how many of these things can make you happy just by looking at them? Family and partners don’t count, as they always come first.

Wait no longer and turn your dreams into reality. Build your own Café Racer. Tell us what the bike of your dreams looks like and we’ll send you a quote without any obligation. We’ll adjust to your budget and get the best possible result. Send us an email to bolmotorcompany@gmail.com.
