Some artists work with paint, some with clay or marble and some with steel and chrome. This is humbling for most folks who like to build their own. Leaves me a tad speechless.
The latest from Kaffee Maschine
The bike was built for Brian Cowan (UK), who wanted a pure custom racebike for vintage racing. His preconditions were: fast, red/silver, cast wheels. And he wanted to ride the biker´s classics (next week) with it, so the schedule was tight. If you are there and see him riding his red “Kaffeemaschine” rather slow- he still has to break in his brandnew engine…
That is a modified/tuned V11 unit (1040ccm, 95hp), combined with a 1980 frame- the Guzzi racer was built from single components. Dry weight is 176kg. I modified a LM1 fairing and chose a Magni-shape GFK tank. The fork is a revised Guzzi original with modern dampers and springs, shocks are special Ikon ones, brake components are new and improved. All other parts are handcrafted, as usual.
I don’t post many of these but I do like them generally. In this case the description was so honest I couldn’t resist.
Attached is a pic of my identity-challenged naked, flat track, super moto, cafe chaser. Lot of fun to ride.
Love your site, keep up the great work.
I might go for different colored wheels but different strokes and all that. Would definitely be a fun back roads scoot.
And it’s For Sale. No I’m not affiliated with the bike or owner.

Love the site, always one of the first I visit every morning with my coffee- kudos to you!
But I thought I’d send in a pic of a barn-find I snagged last year.
It’s a 1977 BMW R100S in the hills by my house here in Colorado… and obviously, I dig it!
It’s my daily driver and after a fair amount of work (after sitting for years) it runs like a champ!
Cheers! And keep up the good work!
Wow! that is some “barn find”! As a Florida native I get so jealous of you folks living in the hills. Great stuff!
You don’t see too many of these. Right down to the drum brake!
