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.
