The 1970s was the era of the cafe racer in its second phase, that of the specialist manufacturers. Certain mainstream marques such as Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Laverda and Yamaha also catered for this emerging market by producing production factory cafe racers such as the 900SS [Ducati], Le Mans [Guzzi], Mongich [Laverda] and RD Series [Yamaha]. Famed motorcycle author Mick Walker graphically recreates the era of the cafe racers. Numerous contemporary photos are featured, with captions explaining the history and technical features of the machines and describing the men who made and rode them.

Cafe Racers

My favorite book on motorcycles. Perfect bike selection, just enough text and beautiful photography. It turned me into a motonerd.

1 great 1 not

I bought two shirts both XLs one fits great the other not so much it should have been labeled medium. The material of both are nice not coarse fabric. Wish I had got the 2xl "wall of death" instead. So one shirt for over $50 was not worth it.

100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
