Vintage CAFE RACER Leather Jackets

6
The term cafe racer is still used to describe motorcycles of a certain style and some motorcyclists still use this term in self-description. Worthy of mentioning here is that an entire new sub-culture has evolved since the heyday of the Rockers. The 'cafe racers', a term that existed in the 1950s and 1960s to refer to bike riders of the race track, but is used now to describe motorcycle riders who choose classic/vintage British, German, Italian, or Japanese motorbikes from the 50s-to late 1970s as their bike of choice, over other styles of bikes.

These cafe racers do not follow the fashion/music subculture of the Rockers, old or new, but dress in a more modern and comfortable appearance with only a hint of likeness to the Rockers style. Common Levi jeans, generic motorcycle jackets, boots and/or shoes with modern helmets being the norm, instead of the very specific brand names, styles and look established by the Rockers. These cafe racers have taken elements of the American Greaser, British Rocker and modern motorcycle rider look to create a style all their own.

the "cafe" style definitely suits the yuppie...so they can still wear baggy pants and Abercrappy-stupid-wear and lame collarless leathers riding their way-too-expensive retro bike to the next kenny g concert...if they only knew how dumb they look!
