Article written by Gareth Charlton for The Bike Shed about CRD64 Cafe Racer.
Being a custom motorcycle aficionado immediately qualifies you as a nostalgic dreamer. We look back through rose-tinted spectacles at those simple, handsome machines and yearn for the no frills times before motorcycles became computers with engines. The trouble is that those glasses often seem to drain the vibrant colours from the past. A dark monochrome palette has become the staple visual of the custom scene, yet the decades that inspired us were a riot of colour. Sunburst orange over vintage bronze were chosen as color for CRD64 Cafe Racer
When Julio approached the guys at Cafe Racer Dreams he didn’t even own a bike, but by courting the prolific Spaniards he was off to a winning start. We are huge fans, and so was Julio. Based in Menorca he wanted a classic motorcycle to enjoy day after day.
