The Goldwing isn’t the most obvious choice for a café racer custom, that said, the Goldwing cafés that I have seen built have all been very capable looking and notably handsome motorcycles.
There’s a lot to be said for bare metal, on this particular bike for example, I can’t imagine any paint job looking batter than that brushed steel fuel tank and seat cowl.
The guys at Steel Bent Customs have a habit of building some of the nicest and…
I love nothing more than coming across a bike that makes me stop and re-evaluate my own notions of what a specific style of bike should look like. This Honda CB350 built by the guys at Ellaspede is a genuinely innovative, modern interpretation of the café racer genre, and we really like it.
Whenever Deus Ex Machina releases a new custom motorcycle, people sit up and pay attention. This Yamaha SR500 is the first SR Custom out of Deus’ relatively new Venice, California garage and hopefully it’s the first of many.
DP Customs is a US based hot rod and motorcycle garage operated by the Del Prado…
The Honda CB350 is a popular bike for custom builders, this particular example is a 1969 model picked up by Shannon Hulcher over at LBC Moto.

This beautiful Honda CB550 Café Racer by Steel Bent Customs is just about the picture perfect motorcycle as far as I can tell. I am biased though as I love the Honda CB550 even in stock form, so this immaculate café build is an incremental improvement on a motorcycle I already loved.
I’m always excited when a new Kiez Kustoms bike comes along, Felix’s style is reminiscent of the café racer builders of the early ’60s in that his emphasis is speed and handling first with aesthetics second.
I’m a die-hard fan of lightweight thumpers. I’ve tried my hand at everything over the years, from adventure bikes to Ducati racers to Vespa 2-strokes but if I had to pick one style of bike to ride for the rest of my life it would be something very much like what you see in the picture above.
Bolting a supercharger onto the side of a Honda CB750, then adding nitros, seems like the work of a maniacal, café racer obessed genius. And in this case, that’s exactly what it is. Built by Carpy, the tattooed two-wheeled engineering whizz over at CB750 Café.
