By Alan Stulberg’s own admission, Revival Cycles is “the kind of shop that puts subtlety high on the list of design priorities.” It shows—Revival’s builds are typically laced with well-considered details that are easily missed at first glance.
"I started Cognito Moto with the black and red Honda CB550 featured on Return of the Cafe Racers last year. This is my latest build a which started off as a '74 CB750 frame and motor I picked up for $400.
The Honda GB250 is one of those small bikes with a big heart—in this case, an air-cooled single that pumps out a healthy 30 bhp in stock form.
The term ‘café racer’ is bandied about so much these days, it’s virtually lost all meaning. But this sleek Honda CB 350 is one of the few modern customs that live up to the moniker.
"Italian Combine Harvesters" is the name given by Dino Romano to this aged Triumph Legend turned into a cafe racer...
‘Plastic Maggots’ they called them. And all for an unassuming little fairing that some ‘genius’ decided didn’t suit their tastes. Talk about throwing the baby out with the bath water.
The 4 motorcycles you see here are the work of Speed Merchant (run by the highly respected trio of Brandon “Brawny Built” Holstein, Denver Dan and Mike Kawakami), their work has been featured right across the web with multiple features on Bike...

The BMW K100 has long been a personal favourite of mine, I can’t help but love an underdog and a motorcycle fitted with an engine originally designed for a small Peugeot motor car certainly qualifies as an underdog.
New wave customs are occasionally criticized for their lack of performance when compared to modern machines costing the same money. The answer, obviously, is that outright performance is not the be-all and end-all when it comes to riding.
We just finished this bike.. Monkee#65It's tested and drives like racebike, 883 converted to a 1200 with a few upgraded details..We sure hope the owner will enjoy the Danish summer.
Written by Ian Lee.So you want to build a sweet ride, but you don’t want to take the well travelled route. You want something with that café racer silhouette, but you also crave something fresh.
If you're a regular reader of Return of the Cafe Racers you're sure to recognise these 2 custom builds as the work of An-Bu Bikes in Japan.
When it comes to old motorcycles in need of resurrection, owners often face a dilemma: restore to original spec, or rebuild as a custom?

With the new-wave custom scene continually evolving and diversifying, it’s becoming progressively more difficult to classify custom motorcycles. Even the mere mention of the term “café racer” is enough to send purists into a frenzy these days.
After building bikes for nigh on 20 years, Unique Custom Cycles has a reputation most builders would die for.
In the modern incarnation of the Café Racer culture perhaps no motorcycle waves the flag like a Deus Yamaha SR500.
The BMW R Nine T according to Inazuma Luke...
