Cafe Society. Rev-Up For This Documentary Film.

caferacer1caferacer260 minutes of Fast Bikes, Black leather and Rock’n Roll. I know you want to watch this one. As strange as it may sound, “Cafe Society” is the first, full-length documentary film to chronicle the origins, legacy and rebirth of the Cafe Racer subculture. Two years in the making and shot in Europe (mainly England) and in the US, this documentary is about giving you an intimate view of the first generation of fast street bikes.

caferacer31The Cafe Racer Cult had been kept very much alive by events like the various Rocker Reunions held on London’s Chelsea Bridge and the goings on at Ace Cafe in London. But very few know about the rich history of the Ton-Up culture and the stories of the men and women who created the first high-performance street bikes. To take you on the city streets wild ride, the film features great rockabilly music (of course) as stripped-down as a Bonneville Bobber  A Chet Burks Productions with Mike Seate reporting and interviews. Pre-order the DVD (different systems are available for viewing different countries) by jumping to the Cafe Society Website. You are going to dig it. Promise….

    Ya man!
    Time to bring back the studded leather jackets.
    Rockers were at the heart of Hot Rod MC scene.
    Dudes who built their own bikes.
    -etc. etc…..

    All of-em invented and created by Rockers first.
    No “Industry”…… just working-class guys in garages.

    God help me but i love it so……… 🙂
