The One Motorcycle Show 2013

The One Motorcycle Show was held in Portland, Oregon earlier this year. It’s interesting seeing the evolution of the cafe racer culture on this video, with one builder lamenting about the same old flat seat, firestone tyres used on custom bikes. The idea of evolving a cafe racer design is a little bit of an oxymoron as it is essentially a homage to a past era, but perhaps this is how this industry will mature as we beging to develop our own aesthetic style, drawing from what was to what it could be. I would have loved to have been there for the show. Maybe next year.
