Cafe Racer to HD Theater | Video Preview

Motorcycles on TV

Here’s a video previewing the upcoming series on HD Theater, Cafe Racer, which will display some of the coolest motorcycles in history.

This 13-part series airing every Wednesday explores the history, development and worldwide culture surrounding the café racer, a motorcycle directly responsible for today’s superbikes.

Cafe Racer premieres Wednesday, Oct. 13, at 9 p.m. (EST) on HD Theater, a channel ran by Discovery Channel.

CAFÉ RACER visits visionary motorcycle builders in the U.S. and England as they search for the perfect combination of style and speed.

Chronicling some of today’s top motorcycle builders through the search and build process, Cafe Racer rides with AMA Pro Superbike racers Eric and Ben Bostrom as they test ride these unique machines.

Recorded in vivid high definition, CAFÉ RACER takes viewers on a full-throttle ride to Mods and Rockers rallies and to London’s legendary Ace Café.

Celebrity café racers including musician Billy Joel and actor Jason Lee share their passion for fast stripped-down motorcycles, while viewers can catch behind-the-scenes footage and learn how-to customizing tips at caferacertv.com (the website will launch at 9am Oct. 13).
