There is a growing Cafe Racer and Custom Bike scene in the Middle East that has evolved rapidly over the last couple of years. Cost savings on fuel, a population made up of individuals from all over the world and next-to-nothing import duties has resulted in some of the most unique and awe-striking creations on our roads.
As the number of these retro machines are expanding in the region, we at CRME are doing our part to help encourage this trend and to raise global awareness of our niche community.
Del Gasan, who has become a recognizable member of the local and international Cafe Racer Community launched Cafe Racers Middle East (C.R.M.E) in July 2013 as a way of giving people in the region a base, a forum to share ideas, ask about parts and share their bikes and experiences. In addition we wanted to also show the international biker community what we could do.
Cafe Racers Middle East have always been supportive of the local builders, garages, regional bike mags, competitions and bloggers whom help us build our culture and community. We at C.R.M.E have been fortunate enough to make contacts with groups such as Karachi Café Racers, Indonesia Café racers, Beirut Cafe Racers, London Cafe and Customs, Japan Café Racers, Sydney Café racers and the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride.
Gone are the days of struggling to get parts, help and part advice! We believe it is imperative to establish a community of like-minded individuals who love these timeless machines and to give them a forum to share their creativity, experiences and inspiration.
If you own or admire these beautiful bikes and want to catch up with fellow riders, head over and join this online community.
