Welcome to The Cafe Racer

What are we about?

If you’re anything like us, you know that life on two wheels is a lifelong passion. Here at The Cafe Racer, we are proud to bring you the latest and greatest motorcycle gear from world-class brands such as Belstaff, Fuel Motorcycles, Bell Helmets, John Doe and many more. We know that the lifestyle is not only about the ride, but also the destination. True to this motto, we stock an unbeatable range of casual wear and accessories to add a little bit of what you love to your everyday life, too. We were the first retailer to introduce Deus Ex Machina to the UK (we’re pretty proud of that one!) and are also a leading stockist of Triumph Lifestyle, Dickies and Carhartt.

Where did it all start?

Our story starts in Brighton, 2010. Surrounded by a thriving bike culture and totally spoilt for choice with both coastal and rural riding routes, we opened our doors with the simple mission of providing honest, friendly and fuss-free guidance to both new and seasoned riders while offering the best gear from helmets to boots, and everything in between.

Fast forward to now. We are still operating by the seaside from our warehouse and welcoming store in Shoreham-by-Sea, always with coffee and bike chatter on tap for whoever drops by! We have a dedicated team of riders and enthusiasts who share the same passion as our customers and are always working hard to perfect every aspect of what we present, from the layout of our website to how we display products in store.

The Cafe Racer has evolved in many different ways over the last decade, but we have kept our core values at the heart of everything we do. Candid advice, great products and an excellent, inclusive service.
