The renowned sculpture of Café Racer bikes remains all time popular since they were born in glorious motorcycle era. In fact the fan following is increasing and has became a style icon within the motorcycle enthusiasts . With bodywork and control layout recalling early day’s road racing motorcycles, Café Racers are noted for their visual minimalism, featuring low-mounted handlebars, prominent seat cowling and elongated fuel tank – and often knee-grips indented in the fuel tank. The appealing physiognomy of Cafe Racers are well accepted by the new generation bikers worldwide. From a 850 cc Triumph Bonneville or a 535 cc Royal Enfield continental GT, the adherence of the cult Cafe Racer is so high i current motorcycle trend. However, beside the smell of a stock Cafe Racer right from the showroom, building a cafe racer from your regular bike is more fun- after all Cafe Racer were born in wasted garage backyards, not into company’s RnD section. So we more appreciate those after market bike builder’s execution, just like the one we have today from Dochaki Designs. – Spitfire V.82, based on a first generation Hero Honda CBZ
