The definition of cafe racer that I know is quite different. A cafe racer, from my knowledge, is a crotch rocket, one that's fast, but not a racing bike. They were called cafe racers because usually they were owned and ridden by yuppies, who used them simply to ride from one cafe to another, trying to acheive the image of a cool, dangerous streetbike rider. The bikes usually had full farings, as opposed to more open bikes, like Harley-Davidsons.
