If you’re in the market for some top quality parts for your Cafe Racer project look no further. VD Classics owner Jean-François VICENTE has been tinkering with his bikes since 1979. In 1991 he set up the first VD Classic mail order catalogue and since then VD Classic has evolved into a full-service custom bike garage producing finished bikes, engine and bodywork upgrades and hand crafted one off parts. The XT500 Yamaha, SR500 Yamaha, W650 Kawasaki, 800 Bonneville Triumph, 900 Thruxton Triumph, 883 et 1200 Sportster Harley Davidson and Buell 1200 SI & M2 head up a list of bikes they specialise in along with an impressive range of universal parts. Parts they supply include custom seats, mirrors, handlebars, body panels, head lamps, mirrors, gauges, tail lights and blinkers and of course a great selection of custom aluminium gas tanks.

Prices are a little on the steep side but I can assure you, you are paying for what you are getting.
