There’s a new firm build­ing the oh-so-cool café rac­ers we know and love. Black Cat Bikes is the name and its aim is to build qual­ity, value-for­money café racer kits for Tri­umph's mo­du­lar mod­els from the 1990s. Jeremy Crowther is the man be­hind Black Cat Bikes and he says: “For sev­eral months I have been de­vel­op­ing a kit for a café racer and now it’s ready. The kit is de­signed to make life easy build­ing an in­di­vid­ual-look­ing bike. Jigs and moulds have been made to pro­duce the parts in small batches to keep the cost com­pet­i­tive and the qual­ity high. Each kit is built up on a frame to make sure all the parts fit cor­rectly. The rear sub-frame is con­structed from steel and is sup­plied un­painted. It comes with all brack­ets welded on for bat­tery, rear brake reser­voir, fuel tank mount, fuses, starter re­lay and the seat mount­ing brack­ets. It bolts on to the main frame (no weld­ing re­quired) af­ter the orig­i­nal sub­frame is cut off.” We hope to road test one very soon.

Black Cat kit of­fers unique looks.
