Cafe So­ci­ety

NO, this is not about latte-sip­ping met­ro­sex­u­als.

This is a 60-minute doc­u­men­tary on the hard men and their harder ma­chines that forged the leg­end of the Cafe Racer mo­tor­cy­cle in the UK in the 1950s and ’60s.

Th­ese are stripped-down, head-down, bum-up mo­tor­cy­cles made for go­ing fast (up to the old 100mph) over short dis­tances.

It in­cludes in­ter­views with builders, rac­ers, de­sign­ers and rare his­tor­i­cal footage and eye­wit­ness ac­counts of the Rock­ers and Ton-Up Boys.
