This is a pictorial history of motorcycles - and the riders - who created the cafe racer craze. The author looks at the BSA Gold Star, the Triumph/Norton hybrid and others and recalls the leather-jacketed "rockers" who indulged in burn-ups on Britain's roads, and gained nationwide notoriety through their seafront battles with the archrivals, the "Mods". He explains the origins of the movement, profiles its machinery and its personalities, and describes the equipment, livery and lifestyle of the cafe racer cult. A nostalgic gallery of contemporary photographs recreates a vivid portrait of the period.
