It was precisely in our custom motorcycle workshop in Miami where we created our first cafe racer motorcycles in 2009 and 2010 with Triumph Bonneville bases and especially Harley Davidson Sportster.

However, in our custom workshop in Spain we have gradually increased the production of BMW and Triumph cafe racer motorcycles over the years; These brands are the most chosen for this style of motorcycles transformed in Spain, especially the BMW R100.

The rise of this style has been such that it has become a culture or a casual fashion that has reached the vast majority of the population.

Since this “cafe racer culture or fashion” has allowed the world of cafe racer or custom motorcycles to be attractive to many people who, before the resurgence of this movement, would never have noticed a motorcycle or even less thought about having one. .

As happened with the surf brands in the 80s and 90s, now it is very easy to see many cafe racer stores in Spain, where custom motorcycles are only mere decorative items in a showcase or exhibition that really sells are t-shirts jackets, caps or many other accessories from cafe racer brands such as Deus Ex Machina or Lord Drake Kustoms.
