Video: Return of the Cafe Racer

The arrival of Norton’s new version of its 961 Commando, coinciding with the emergence of the likes of Royal Enfield’s Clubman and a raft of specials based on Triumph’s Thruxton, has helped create a whole new cult of the Café Racer.

Wish you were here indeed

The Triumph and the Hyde Harrier look great.  Pity we can't get either here in los estados unidos.  I understand the reasons for building the modern Bonneville to a budget point.  But that was years ago.  Surely a sufficient number of folks would pay more for a Bonneville from Triumph with a more potent engine and better suspension, wheels and tires.  In the meantime I suppose the specialty builders will step up and fill the gap.

Boy Racer

Nice bikes but I'm afraid in my humble opinion they don't come close to the AJS 7R "Boy Racer" now that really was a Cafe Racer.

If AJS make a modern version of this I'll be first in the queue !
