I'm looking for cafe racer movies on Netflix?

Any suggestions on good cafe racer movies or documentaries that are possibly on Netflix?

I did a search and found:

The Leather Boys
cafe society - documentary
Pschomania - horror but good from what people said.

2009 Triumph Bonneville
Couple of Volvo's in the garage to offset the bike

The Leather Boys is ace! Authentic and perfectly period. Psychomania is totally mad, but weirdly compelling. Both films portray an England now sadly, gone forever.

Another good netflix choice

Not strictly a cafe racer choice, but a great documentary on motogp racing is "Fastest".

Alright! I'll check these out. I did watch "Fastest" last week. It was pretty good. Thanks for the suggestions.

Not a Cafe Racer Movie but if you haven't seen The World's Fastest Indian, it is worth it, plus, it is on Netflix.

You should be able to get "The Long Way Around" and "The Long Way Down". Both documentaries on epic epic journeys taken by Ewen McGregor and his friend Charlie. I enjoyed them fully.
