Cafe Racers Japan

Until now, I turned down all very long videos because they consume too much bandwidth and slow the loading of other articles. But of course, sooner or later, I had to make an exception. Here is a 15 minute short film about a day in the life of the fashion conscious Rockers of the Cafe Racers scene in fascinating Tokyo.

    I tried to watch this video twice, fashion is just not my thing I guess. I found the 11 second Jim Nasi rotating license plate video more interesting. Just my view on things not putting anyone down.

    Well, it’s Japan and the USA will imitate.

    Guess I’ll never fit into that scene. I’d rather spend money on the bike than on clothes any day.

    America gave us the Chopper and Britain the Café Racer, two very different styles of MotorCycles but both became symbols of Rebellion.
    Youth and adrenalin, danger and wanting to be coolest cat on the block. Ton up boys fighting the mods and Chopper guys fighting each other……………..

    A tad long, maybe Cyril, and very essentially deja vu as you say in the USA 🙂

    Boring and no Triton in sight.

    When I first saw motorcycles and fashion it was when I walked into a Harley dealership and saw more clothes than bikes. It’s not my gig but live and let live. At least there’s a lot more bikes on the floors of H-D dealers today. To be fair I guess my rejection of v-twin or cafe fashion is a fashion statement in it’s own right.

    I had a different take on this.

    There were subtle clues into how hard the young Japanese are trying to find an identity and one that is not routed in their past. They used to be the big dog in Asia, now it’s China. You could also see the interesting dynamic between the young husband and wife, with the wife desperately trying to have her identity while staying true to the Japanese traditions of the wife walking five paces behind and not talking.

    Wow THERES 10 minutes of wasted time, why not call it a Japanese fashion show. Clothes do not make a biker so please go back to your not posting videos ethos or lose some viewers. Ten minutes of BS about Japanese posers, that says more about you than it does about them!

    lol. when the guy says a cool bike w/o cool clothes isn’t cool, he lost me.

    I would call this movie “blurry dots over and over again”.
