Founded by Benjie Flipprboi, Benjie’s Cafe Racer or BCR, pride themselves in producing one off Cafe Racer’s based on old Japanese and British motorcycles. Here’s just a few of their awesome builds..

“Black Whale” Honda CB 750

Their parts catalogue boasst an impressive selection of custom made, Cafe Racer styled seats, tanks (metal and carbon fibre), oil tanks, seat/tank combos, Euro style headlight covers and Full Cafe Racer conversion kits for specific bike models. They are also happy to produce parts to customer specifications.

The BCR website features some great examples of the bikes they have put together over the years. Tasteful colour schemes, clean straight lines and tight performance mods are common throughout and left me wanting to start a new project.

“Euro Yammy” Yamaha TX750


“Pinas 550” Honda CB 550
Benjie’s have 3 US outlets in Edison NJ, Cranford NJ and West Coast Corona CA and also have an international dealer based in Manila in the Phillipines.

“The Armadillo” Honda CB 450

“Benjie’s Café Racer, (BCR), founded by Benjie Flipprboi, is a one of a kind bike builder. He creates vintage café racers out of old Japanese and British bikes without copying any other builders. For every single bike, the gas tank, seat, bars, and most of the remaining parts of the bike are all hand fabricated. Nothing is bought except the original bike itself, and then it is spruced up with Benjie’s own hand- fabricated parts. BCR is a unique custom builder that creates genuine and stylish vintage café racers like no other builders.”
