CB750 Flat Black Cafe Racer Club

Starting a new club I'm sure many of you can join.
Its the CB750 Flat Black Cafe Racer Club.
Requirements are simple:
You must have a CB750 painted black whether you know how to ride or not.
You must own and/or ride in a Members Only disco jacket, skinny hipster jeans and high top sneakers with an open face helmet.
You must be able to recite evrything you have ever heard or read about Carpy from a CB750 forum.
You must watch this video about cafe racers The Legend of the Cafe Racer
You must know that the Cafe Racer scene started in England and ended in the late 1960's before the CB750 came out.
You must be a douchebag if you think CB750s were ever used as Cafe Racers in London during the 1960's.
Send all applications to this email. A club officer will contact you soon.
Enjoy the video!
Enjoy the video

RE:CB750 Flat Black Cafe Racer Club (Your an idiot)

Its posers like you who bought a triumph or british bike just to "fit in" or think you are cool. I own both cb750 and triumph but I prefer the cb as it is more reliable and doesnt piss oil everywhere. So dont knock people for owning a different bike then what you like, that is BS...A bike is a bike. Yes I do prefer the looks of my triumph but thats about it but I dont go around saying oh if you own a harley or a suzuki,etc that then you are a looser....Grow up or maybe you've been told too many times how cool your bike was even though you cant ride it half the time....

I don't think the responded got it, I'm sure it twisted his skinny jeans all in a bunch to hear all that! :) . On a seperate note , when did the cafe craze thing start and how? I just got lucky that the only bike I could afford was a sohc4

Awesome video!  I see a lot of those around here.  However, there are a lot of guys who truly know their stuff when it comes to bikes and still choose the cafe route.

"I guess this whole 'Cafe racer' thing is a little more complicated than I thought.  Perhaps I should leave it to the professionals."

LMAO....My thoughts exactly...

WTF is a "members only disco jacket"?  Sounds like something that would get yer butt kicked if you wore it in Alabama.  Come to think of it, sounds like something that would get your butt kicked if you wore it into a disco.

Members Only was a brand in the eighties that gained some popularity.  But in the past decade, hipsters started wearing them again.

I have a members only jacket that my GRANDFATHER owned.  When he passed i inherited it, I wear it with pride.  haven't thought of using it to push my hipster-cafe racer agenda yet. . .

The leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran (Amadinajad) always sports a Members Only jacket.  Every time I see somebody wearing one...my trigger finger itches.

i really don't get hipsters.  it's like they don't realize how embarrassed everyone was about what we wore in the mid-late 80s the 1st time around... lol.
