Cafe racers are about more than just aesthetics. Clean lines are beautiful and desirable, but they’re also a side-benefit of losing unnecessary bike bits that weigh you down and keep your bike from performing as well as it could. Add in further mods to unlock a bike’s performance potential, and you very loosely have the recipe for a cafe racer customization. Doing the ton -- that’s 100mph -- is, of course, a goal. But it’s not the only goal. Becoming a beautiful cafe racer is something that even tiny displacement bikes can aspire to do.
