Submit Your Cafe Racer Project

Want to see your Cafe Racer Featured Here?


Since 2006 we’ve been helping custom workshops and backyard builders to share their work with the world. With a global audience of over 1 million followers and readers, Return of the Café Racers can help you to get your motorcycle or workshop the attention it deserves.

To submit your café racer for consideration complete the form below. Be concise and add as much detail as you can relating to your bike. Good photography is paramount. We will only publish photos of a high standard.

  • About you & your workshop

  • Tell us a bit about yourself and your workshop.
  • We will include this link in the feature so people can learn more about you and your business.
  • Photography

  • IMPORTANT: To feature your bike we require at least 8-10 professional photographs of the motorcycle. These are essential if you want to see your bike featured and should show both sides of the bike from multiple angles as well as close up details. If your photos are blurry, over/under exposed or have been altered heavily using filters or effects it's unlikely they will be used.

    Please provide a link to where the photos can be found such as a Dropbox folder or Wetransfer download.
  • BONUS POINTS: In addition to photos, we recommend you include a short video if you can. This video can be shot on your phone and can be as simple as a quick walkaround of the bike with an overview or a ride and review. A few minutes is totally fine, doesn't need to be a full-length film. We like to share these videos with our 500k+ Instagram fans and its great exposure for you.

    Please provide a link to where the video can be found such as a Dropbox folder or Wetransfer download.
