Looking for a cafe racer kit for your very own cafe racer project? You’ve come to the right place! No, I don’t sell cafe racer kits, but I’ll put you in the right direction!
The cafe racer scene may be established back in the 50s and 60s. It’s more alive than ever. The past 10 years the scene grew from a tiny world of shed builders to a popular, ever-growing industry of custom motorcycles. Every week I see new names in the industry and sometimes I wonder where all these creative people come from. The purpose of BikeBrewers.com is to inspire others for building their very own custom motorcycle. But a lot of bikes are built by real professional companies with a large list of skills, equipment, and cash. And also, a lot of projects initiated by guys like you and me end up on sites like Craigslist as an “unfinished project”. So what if you’re looking to build your own cafe racer, but don’t have the skills, equipment, and money? Yes: buy a cafe racer kit, bolt all custom parts on, make some minor modifications and ride!

The overall goal is to cut down the weight, improve handling and performance and giving the bike a sports bike appearance. If you take a good look at most cafe racers we see these days, the aesthetics are pretty simple:
