CRD18 Cafe Racer comes again from France, this time from the south. A work partner from the owner of Atomica got in contact with us.
He has a very clear idea of what he wants: a very low bike and very fat bike, bobber, flat track and brat style.
We started out with the exhaust system, planning a 2 into 2 which gave us a lot of work to do. Despite the high location that Juan demanded (despite us trying to persuade him otherwise) it actually runs cooler that the original system, and we think the end result was worth the extra effort.
From there we went on to sort the chassis and suspensions where the bike takes it’s final character, which for our customer, meant cutting the back-end short and fitting fat tyres to black rims.
Our biggest challenges during the build we delays in some key parts which meant we had to finish up in less than four days, including all the electrical work.”
Juan loved the proposal so much that he still riding this Cafe Racer everyday.
