This Harley Davidson Cafe Racer is built by Redmax Speedshop for “Racy Rach” who wanted a Harley Davidson Cafe Racer.
We did a story on Redmax before, so if you like, click here.
She has to have a 1200 and so a 2005 1200 Sportster seems to do the job.
A shiney new tank arrives on the doorstep and we’re ready to build a Harley Davidson Cafe Racer!
Get the bike in the workshop and hit it with the disc cutter to remove all surplus crap (and there was plenty of it !)
The spare parts in the bin? –> 30kg!
The biked needed a heavy duty subframe to replace the bits that were cut out
Akront flanged rims and stainless spokes + 18′ Avon Roadrider tyres
Metallic green is the order of the day here
Burning out on the old Dunlops !
Finished another beautiful Harley Davidson Cafe Racer
Rach has just done a photo shoot for french mag Cafe Racer with the bike , this was her first ride after breaking her back in December so it was a big thing for her.
