American Cafe is a look into Cafe Racer motorcycle culture in the United States. Transplanted from Europe, the term "Cafe Racer" describes both a type of motorcycle as well as the personality of those who ride them. American Cafe tells the story of this culture in America by following two motorcyclists attempting to build Cafe Racers to ride in the Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang Cafe Racer Run; one of the most well known, yet least understood, cafe racer events in the country. The Gang "American Cafe" features interviews with members of the "Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang", the creators of the "Crud Run". The Bikes In addition the film follows the story of two motorcyclists-turned-mechanics who attempt to rebuild two broken-down Honda motorcycles as Cafe Racers. 1974 Honda CL350: un-ridden for at least a decade, some parts of which arrived in a stock-pot. 1982 Honda CB650SC: Half-way between a "cruiser" and a "standard", who's parts are incompatible with almost every other Honda CB. The Run These stories are blended together with coverage of the event itself and footage of the beautiful roads that draw motorcyclists from thousands of miles to attend the event. Together these elements paint a vivid picture of the Cafe Racer in contemporary America.moreless
