We organised a photoshoot for the members of Perth Cafe Racers at Panama Jacks hangar at Jandakot airport on Sunday.
While the pro’s had their DSLR’s out I walked around with my new Samsung Galaxy Note2 taking a few pics.
You’ll see the pro pics here soon.
Saw this on the French outfit Ruleshaker’s Facebook and thought I had to post it (even though the pictures are shit) as it is something different.
The Honda CB450 is for sale, hit them up if you want more info.
Saw an amazing bike on Instagram so messaged the owner asking for good pics and he hasn’t got any but he does have this video bio.
Check out a fellow tumblr Retro Moto.
This CB400 Cafe Racer from ATJ Project in Poland looks very similar to their CB450 Street Tracker. There must have been a special on the the blue paint. I’m not a fan of racing colours (especially gulf colours) on totally non related bikes, just doesn’t make sense to me. That’s more my problem than ATJ’s as they obviously have skill and have produced three excellent bikes. Check the blue stitching on the seat, that is a nice detail.
What do reckon, does it pass the grade as a Cafe Racer?
Got an email from Poland the other day. Not an official email from Bronislaw Komorowski or anything but from Adam of ATJ Project. He sent pics of a few of his bikes and the one you see above is a CB450 Street Tracker.
We are trying do start with our own factory, Atj-Project. But this is all our passion.
We love old motorbikes, we buy destroyed bikes and renovated them. We mix components from different styles (moto-cross, our own ideas). Most parts we made own (hade made, for example board, fender, seat, painting tank etc).
Regards from Poland, Warsaw.
I’ve featured some of their smaller bikes before so it’s probably time to revisit some of their newer work.
While they seem to be knocking out DOHC CB750 street trackers with ultra thin flat seats seemingly every week, the bike that caught my eye was this CB450 bobber.
More pics here
It’s that time of the month again!
Here are my favourite 3 bikes that are up for November bike of the month on the Do The Ton Forum. There are 5 bikes up for nominations this month. Head over and place your vote.
It’s a pretty tough call this month although I think I have a favorite. Which bike are voting for?
Does this bike look familiar?
It should, it’s featured here before and then went on to be featured on bikeexif a couple of weeks later and then everyone else who can right click and copy put it on their blog (and deservedly so, its beautiful.)
I passed Eric’s (the owner) details onto fellow Perth Cafe Racer member - Darren, as he was thinking about building a Virago cafe racer. Eric is nearly finished building a sensational Virago Cafe Racer and is about to take professional photos and share them with the world. For a sneak peak, check tomorrows post ;)
Let’s hope Darren can build something as cool as Eric. Would love to see a super cool Virago around the streets off Perth soon
