Our Vision

Why we love to get these amazing old bikes back on the road

“We earn our scars.”

Although we do admire a meticulous restoration, we prefer it when old bikes look old. That particular patina that comes from decades of faithful service.

59 café classic motorbikes is inspired by Mid-century “Ton-Up” culture. The Rocker Movement. Stripped down machines. The classic simplicity of a Norton Manx or BSA Goldstar. The sounds & smells in the air at the Corsa Moto Classica. We are also inspired by the 1960s Honda race bikes that all but killed the British motorcycle industry.

Our passion is Vintage Café Racer motorcycles.

We are enthusiasts and our goal is to preserve classic motorbikes as well as create a community of like-minded enthusiasts. We are affiliated with The Brit Iron Association, the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club, & The Ton-Up Club. We host a local vintage motorcycle group that organizes rides, events, and a monthly meet ‘n greet.
