This October 13 you can watch as the guys at Dime City Cycles transform this banged up, sludge filled Honda CB450 in to a rip snorting good times Cafe Racer called the Brass Cafe. As part of Discovery HD’s Cafe Racer TV series Dime City Cycles will walk us through the whole build process from start to finish.

“The Brass Cafe” will embody everything that is classic cafe racer. Vintage, one-up, hand tooled seat, purpose built indented tank, 7″ light with visor, and don’t forget that sweet Dime City “Wasp” rear end!

With a deep and luxurious scheme shod with black and brass, it will pull hues from the Steampunk genre which is so curiously being explored today. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk) Sporting hand-tooled, solid brass accents and plating, it will follow all the classic café lines while forging a path for new ideas and inspiration. All the trimmings will be present making any Ton’r more than pleased.

The vision behind The Brass Cafe is one of purity, both in style and heritage. Dime City will pursue classic forms in metal working, paying respect to the builders of the 50’s and 60’s and what they stood for…and simultaneously hoping to inspire a renewed interest in the motorcycle as the ultimate expression of form and function.”

 

Discovery Channels Cafe Racer TV is quickly starting to sound much better than expected!
