How To Build A Café Racer

• Written by well-known motorcycle and automotive author Doug Mitchel, How to Build a Café Racer starts with a history lesson

• While those first bikes were built in the UK for racing from café to café, the current rage for Café Racers has definitely spread to the US. Converting a stock motorcycle to a Café Racer requires more than a fairing and a few decals

• The book starts with chapters on planning and choosing an appropriate bike, followed by chapters that detail the modifications that will likely be embraced by anyone converting a stocker to a rocker

• From shocks and tires to engine modifications, Doug's book lays out each type of modification and how it's best carried through

• The center of the book holds a gallery of finished bikes

• These are not just Triumphs or Nortons, but nearly every brand imaginable from Japan, Italy, the UK, and Germany

• The final chapters include two, start-to-finish Café builds

• This is the chance for the reader to see how professional shops take a stock Honda, Triumph, or Ducati and convert it into a fast, sexy, and functional Café Racer, ready to race from cafe to cafe on Saturday night, or around the race track on Sunday afternoon
