Nothing says Rocker like an old cafe racer, the right paint and parts, proper seat, suspension tweaks and engine tuning, all for the purpose of joining the Ton-Up club and looking good while doing it! Some of the old British bikes were classic cafes but here’s one guy that thinks the perfect cafe begins with a Honda CB750.
Steve Carpenter has been reworking CB750s for quite a while and a couple of his creations won 1st and 2nd place at the Grand National Roadster Show. These bikes definitely look the part and the video on his site shows they sound pretty good, too.
His creations are shipped all over the world and he’ll build one for you, if you’re so inclined. Some of the bikes on his sites have photos showing the build from stock bike to finished cafe so you can get an idea of how it all comes about. He sells a few parts to help you create your own CB750 cafe, like a proper seat, gauge faces, decal kits and other odd bits. Nice bikes!
