Cafe racers suck. If you need a defintion, you need to get a life. Ride what you like, but don't try to impress me with a label or a title (or bolt on/take off doo-dads.)

Edit: Sorry, I just realized you are a newbie...we go through this BS about 2-3 times year.

Wow, Greaser apologizing for his acerbic posts. Is there a full moon?

Anyway, The Dog Institute of Higher Stuff brought about a discussion on this subject recently. Have a look:
