Early caf racers were a British invention and used combinations of engines and frames from homemarket bikes. Later came Japanese bikes such as the Honda CB750, which responded well to the caf treatment. Stock bikes were no good for this sort of thing, plus new ones were too expensive for teenagers and 20somethings, so Rockers built their own, often from scrapyard beaters. First to go are the standard handlebars, which are replaced by clipons, a racingtype tank and seat are next, then come modifications to the exhaust system, plus new paint and other minor decorating. The early cafe riders were looking for a racer image, so rarely hung superfluous goodies all over the bike. Top off the aluminum gas tank, monster front brake, alloy rims and premium rubber and you have the ultimate cafracer, an appealing mix of speed and style and, in effect, the worlds first sportbike.
This is a onceina lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the best examples of a professionally built caf racer and a genuine autographed piece of music memorabilia from one the greatest bass players of modern times GET OUT AND DRIVE...er RIDE
