You might get to know about a lot of other bikes. Be it Harley Davidson, road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid commuter bikes, different kinds of sportbikes, and then there come cafe racers. You probably recognize this bike from the name, as we hear a lot about the cafe racer jacket. And honestly, halfway, you are right about it. The jackets were specially made for cafe racer bikes initially only. Now they are part of fashion as well.
Cafe racer bikes have such an exciting history. It can keep you engaged, and if you have a motorbike squad, you will surely love to know how it first got into its existence. Cafe racer bikes’ origin is from The UK, where all the bike enthusiasts used to sit and have a conversation about bikes and their parts. That motorway became the hub of these fanatics, where they started conducting illegal races.
The formation of the cafe racer bike happened by customizing the bikes. The gangs wanted something incredibly fast and sleekly styled. Primarily they were stretched-back bikes, then the gangs used to mix and match the engines just to make the bikes faster. The design of these racer bikes evolved a lot over time, and now when we see them, they are entirely different. They are much light-weighted, plus not much attention is given to the look, but definitely to the speed.
Cafe racer bikes are different and uniquely built. Their handles are pretty low for the long stretched seat, whereas the footpegs are awkwardly placed. But then the rider who is riding, it is his part to make it look iconic.
As cool as the racer bikes are, jackets that are created just for them are even chicer. “There is beauty in the simplicity” these racer jackets are a living example of this quote. They are popular because of their casual and straightforward style. No fancy cuts at all. Just a straight zipper at the front and round collar. The only part that makes it look more classic is the pocket placements. Some of them have two pockets, and some have 4 on the chest and around the waist.
Well, racer jackets were widely used by bikers and racers, but not anymore. People who do not even like bikes are wearing these retro racer jackets just because of their minimalist style. It can really be a go-to casual outfit blazer. That’s what makes it beautiful. You can add or cancel out ornaments to style this everyday piece of the jacket.
