Where did it all start?

The Cafe Racer was born on April 2010 by Phil in the seaside town of Hove, near Brighton. Brighton has a thriving bike scene being close to the the world famous Ace Cafe and a ride-out destination for bikers all over the South of England. There are a growing number of custom bike riders and The Cafe Racer opened its doors to cater for that style of riding as there was nowhere at the time that had a good selection of vintage and retro style motorcycle gear. Nine years on and we now have a great team of people (mostly riders) with a customer focussed straightforward approach dedicated to helping our customers get the best gear suited to them.
