2008 has been a good year for Cafe Racer style/influenced custom builders. Several workshops have popped up and seemingly gained instant popularity in online communities. One such workshop is the Wrench Monkees out of Copenhagen, Demark.


Street Trackers, Brats and Cafe Racers dominate their style guide. Their project bikes include Yamaha SR500, BMW R80, Honda CB500T, Yamaha XS650, Harley Davidson Sportster, Moto Guzzi 850T and even a Suzuki Katana. Custom fabricated parts and hand painted graphics are featured on almost every bike they have built which is a testament to their skills and passion and their motto, plain and simple…

We build bikes to ride every day. They’re simple, mechanical expressions.
We don’t want to worry about scratching them.
We build unique custom bikes for people who loves riding motorcycles.


The Wrenchmonkees website currently showcases 15 of their tightest bikes and according to their last newsletter orders are pouring in. A webshop is also flagged as coming soon so some custom parts may be in the pipeline. Join the Wrenchmonkees mailing list for updates or bookmark the Wrenchmonkees Blog.
