Record-Racing Glory

October 25, 2008

ORIGINAL:    The Café racer, originally pronounced “caff” (as in Kaff), has its roots in the 1960s British counterculture group The Rockers, however these were also common in Italy, Germany and other European countries.

Rockers were a young and rebellious counterculture that wanted a fast, personalised and distinctive bike to travel between cafés and around British towns and cities. Rockers would race to selected points along the highway and back to the café before a single song would finish on the cafés jukebox, thus record-racing was born…and the inspiration behind the gorgeous Ducati Sport Classic GT!
