4.0 out of 5 stars Cafe Racer Book
Expected a book dealing with cafe racers based on British bikes but this is more about
converting more modern machinery. It is i believe more from a USA point of view and has
a flavour of the recent television series Cafe Racer but is a good publication for those building
their first machine which in all fairness will be more likely be based on a Japanese...

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea with nice photos, but really bad book binding...
First fo all, i need to say i love this book. Great contents and easy to read. But the book binding is really awful. The worse paper i EVER have seen in a book. Seems to be cheap copies done with an ink-jet printer. And finally have an error with the pages and the numbers are in the wrong side of the pages...

My opinion is: it was a lot of job and well done...

My opinion is: it was a lot of job and well done photos and investigation, but the result was not good due the poor paper, printing and binding.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing, 9 Sept. 2013

This review is from: How to Build a Cafe Racer (Paperback)
Despite the title not many people will be any the wiser about "how to build a cafe racer" after reading this book. Details about planning a build and how to go about it are virtually non existent. The book seems to promote various motorcycle parts, accessories and workshop services available in U.S. Straight onto E.bay I'm afraid for my copy.

Although there is some interesting information in the book it is really for the American market and really covers the building of a Japanese bike into a cafe racer rather than the traditional Brit Bike originals.
