Motorcycle to celebrate 70 years of Ace Cafe

Published: 16 April 2008

Ace Cafe owner Mark Wilsmore has teamed up with leading custom motorcycle builder Nick Gale to rebuild 100 motorcycles to mark the 70th anniversary of the venue this year.

The Ace Cafe Racers will be 'beautiful and represent the epitome of what cafe racing is all about' say Wilsomore and Gale.

But with a 100 cubic inch (1600cc) V-twin motor from US engine builder S&S Cycles, the Ace Cafe Racer should be a lot more powerful than the 1950s motorcycle it seekes to emulate.

Check out these photos of the modern version in production.
