BMW motorcycles have always been one of the main go-to bike for café racer builders and with the recent introduction of BMW R Nine T; with its classic looks and modern components; the flood gates have opened, and numerous workshops have hopped on the custom café racer bandwagon.
One of the pioneers of the custom modern-day café racer builders is a Spanish workshop appropriately called: Café Racer Dreams. With 110 custom café racer build to date; CRD has grown from a simple workshop to a global phenomenon as they showcase their masterpieces daily on their social media platforms and now boast almost 700,000 combined loyal followers which most of their client based is from.
CRD102; one of their latest creation; is a unique and eye-catching master piece. Inspired by Steve McQueen’s bike in the movie “The Great Escape” and based on a BMW R100. CRD102’s silver-platted matte gas tank contrasts beautifully with its aggressive Continental tires and is complimented by the brown cow-hide covering the seat and the handles. An in-house built single exhaust and a one-sided swing arm keep the side of the bike clear.
What makes CRD bikes standout from the crowd is their use of state-of-the-art materials and the implementation of new technologies on their bikes. Their impeccable build quality and good taste insures that wherever a CRD bike is parked; heads will turn, jaws will drop, and hearts will race.
CRD is showing absolutely no indication of slowing down and we certainly hope they never do. The world is certainly a better place with more of their masterpieces on the road.
