A hugely popular publication, Cafe Racer is an excellent US based mag that is a must read for anyone with an interest in the retro Cafe Racer scene.

Cafe Racer deals with this particular style of motorbike and culture not just in the US but worldwide, with plenty of UK coverage, offering features looking at its history, current goings-on and accompanying lifestyle – plenty of leather jackets, sideburns and slicked back hairstyles. As well as this it also offers details of new products, gear tests, workshops and more, alongside opinion pieces and some fantastic photography, and is all produced with an excellent sense of humour.

Apparently, according to our extensive research, the Cafe Racer scene started in the UK in the 60’s, and was a sort of subset of the Rocker culture. The term apparently referred to those who would hang out with their motorcycles at the various roadside cafes to be found across the country (before everything became a Little Chef, and then subsequently stopped being a Little Chef and started being closed), doing their best to look cool.

Originally the phrase was used as a bit of an insult by people who actually cared more about their motorcycles than looking good, but as with many such terms it was adopted by the target. Cafe Racers are cool, that’s for sure – we could definitely imagine The Fonz sat outside a café, posing ever so slightly with his Cafe Racer bike nearby on its kickstand.

The Cafe Racer scene is apparently having quite the revival in America, which is why this mag is US based rather than from the UK. Perhaps being a Cafe Racer makes more sense over there than over here, after all ‘Moterway Services Racer’ doesn’t have quite the same ring to it… NB
