Cafe Racer TV is a television show that features cafe racer style motorcycles. Cafe racers predate sport bikes and were popular during the 1960's in Britain. Riders looking for performance transformed standard motorcycles into cafe racers by stripping bikes to their essentials and modifying them to reduce weight and improve performance.They were called cafe racers because riders would race them between the cafes of London.
The Cafe Racer TV show airs at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday nights.
If you miss the show on TV, the Classic Bike Experience has copies of the program on DVD at their shop. Stop-by and watch the DVD's on their big screen TV.
