Classic Café

Greetings, fellow classic bikers. I follow your Facebook page closely, for it immortalizes timeless design and engineering. I recently completed a BMW café racer project, and wanted to share it with you. I consider it a “Classic Café” because it preserves fundamentally classic design elements. This build pays tribute to both the iconic BMW racing/sport tradition and to the ever young and fresh Café Racer culture. I attempted blending the classic and elegant lines of this boxer with straightforward café touches. I hope you like it. – Luis Etchenique/South Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
