The 3rd season will air on Velocity, the Discovery Channel replacing HD Theater since October 4, 2011. Cafe Racer Season 3 runs Thursdays at 8 pm, starting April 19th. Mike Seate hosts a tour of one of the world’s most enduring style of bikes: The Cafe Racer.
Mike will continue to explore the history, development and worldwide cult surrounding the Cafe Racer, a motorcycle directly responsible for today’s superbikes. The Cafe Racer Show visits legendary motorcycle builders in the U.S., England, and Italy as they search for the perfect combination of style and speed.
In the seasons premiere episode, CAFÉ RACER visits the legendary NCR Ducati shop in Italy to acquire exclusive parts for a one-of-a-kind build. Future episodes will include a Bostrom Brothers’ surprise build; lighting fast tests at Little Talledega; a controversial custom build that that will exceed six figures; and, an exclusive look into the Cretins, America’s first café racing society. (Last minute, I just learned from host Nike Seate that Cafe Racer will also being broadcast on Discovery main channel at 2 p.m. and 2:30 pm weekdays)
