How To Build A Cafe Racer

Written by well-known motorcycle and automotive author Doug Mitchel, How to Build a Cafe Racer starts with a history lesson. While those first bikes were built in the UK for racing from café to café, the current rage for Cafe Racers has definitely spread to the US.

Converting a stock motorcycle to a Café Racer requires more than a fairing and a few decals. The book starts with chapters on planning and choosing an appropriate bike, followed by chapters that detail the modifications that will likely be embraced by anyone converting a stocker to a rocker. From shocks and tires to engine modifications, Doug's book lays out each type of modification and how it's best carried through.
