Description

In Café Racers 2019, master photographer Michael Lichter visually traces café racer motorcycles from their origins in the mid-twentieth century all the way into modern times.

Café Racers 2019 showcases classic and contemporary café racers through museum-quality portraiture of top motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter. The unique and ever-morphing eras of these nimble, lean, light, and head-turning machines are breathtaking to behold. Café Racers 2019 visually celebrates a motorcycle-riding culture as complex as the vast array of bikes within it.
