How many times can you drive a pick up truck through a gate hauling a trailer? Lots, actually. It's all about retakes, angles, lights and having normal people make believe they are actors for a day. All good fun and a great experience. We'll be posting a picture folio soon of the making of Cafe Racer.
CBE has teamed with Vanson Leathers to produce a Signature CBE Cafe Riding jacket. Bryan and the team at Vanson were terrific in working with us on a design that fit our Brit Bike mission. Paired with a set of their deerskin gauntlet riding gloves, it is the perfect cafe apparel from the finest manufuacturer of riding leathers in the States.

One little CBE trick that is featured on the show is Professor Nick "fooling" a tank to "rust in reverse". Great reality TV sequence but, more importantly, the best and safest way to remove rust from your precious classic bike steel tank. Check out our "Services" page for more information, pricing and how to send us your tank for rust removal.
Well, they came, they saw, they filmed and, yes, they put us on TV!
The Cafe Racer Producer, Ed Coughlin, and his team were really great and we had a blast doing the show with them and our partners at Hot Rod Hotel. Thanks to Ed et al for the opportunity and to Louie and John at HRH for having us do the bikes for them and for being great biz partners.
