For years now, the term ‘cafe racer’ has been heavily corrupted. But Rebellion of the Machines (based out of Madrid, Spain) is looking to give the phrase some meaning again.
In one of my favorite posts from the site in recent months, BikeEXIF highlighted a beautiful CB750 from Rebellion, the founder of which said “we’re fed up with the ‘artisan’ word being used to hide badly finished bikes—and absurd stuff like knobby tires on 130 horsepower machines. So this machine is a true performance bike. A real café racer must handle and brake better than the original and weigh less—and look like it’s doing 200 mph when standing still!”
