A Holiday Gift Guide for the hipster motorcyclist closest to your heart.

A Holiday Gift Guide for Your Cafe Racer Riding Loved One

Welcome to RideApart's Motorcycle Holiday Buying Guide. To help clear up the confusion when it comes to finding that perfect gift for the motorcycle enthusiast in your life, we've made things simple by breaking down great gift ideas by the type of motorcyclist you're buying for. So whether you've got a Hooligan Street racer, or a Moto Nerd to buy for, look no further.

For Your Special Hipster

First things first, Cafe Racer motorcyclists are the peacocks of the motorcycle world, so whatever you get them it needs to be fashionable. If the person you are buying a gift for happens to own a Triumph, Royal Enfield, Norton, old Honda CB or BMW, chances are this list is perfect for them. These bikes look cool, and as such their riders must follow suit.

GoPro Hero 4 Session

Peacocks need to record how cool they are for the world and, at the very least, share their adventures on Instagram. The GoPro Session is the perfect little camera for the on-the-go Cafe Racer enthusiast.

The HERO4 Session packs the power of GoPro into the smallest, lightest, most convenient camera yet, featuring a rugged and waterproof design, easy one-button control, revolutionary battery efficiency, 1080p60 video and 8MP photos.

Helmets

No self-respecting cafe racer can be seen riding around town with a modern looking helmet. Buy them a classic half-face or retro inspired lid. Below are two of my favorites. Both are DOT certified, meet current regulations standards, and they come in a variety of colors.

Bell Bullitt

Jacket

Not any leather jacket will do for an aspiring on-and-off bike boss. The Rev'it urban line has you covered with fully integrated CE armor where it counts. Rev’it Flatbush is one of the swankest cowhide jackets you can find for men and for the ladies. We recommend the Rev'It Bellecour.

Jeans

What are the Mario Bros pajamas made of? Denim, Denim, Denim. While denim looks good, it shreds faster when it hits the pavement than Shawn White does in a halfpipe. Make sure your fellow motorcyclist is attired to look great on and off the bike while protecting their ass in the event of a slide with Tobacco Motorwear Kevlar lined jeans.

Gloves

Racer gloves with gauntlets and armor all over are not going to fit the look and aesthetic you have going when riding that sweet CB750 down the boulevard. Get a pair of gloves that complete the look. One of my favorite everyday gloves for the past year has been the Mickey by Racer Gloves. Perfectly armored and discrete. They are the first pair of mitts I reach for when heading out of the house.

Everyday Carry Supplies

A true Cafe Racer or bobber enthusiast is never without his signature accessories. One of particular note is The E3 Supply Co. Tactical Glove Lanyard to pair with your Racer Mickey gloves above. Instead of stuffing your prized gloves in your helmet, wear them on your side and always know where they are.

Cotter Pin Tool Roll

With vintage bikes come breakdowns on the side of the road so being without a tool kit is a serious bummer. No self-respecting motorcyclist can be without tools or have too many tools but the majority of tool kits are unsightly and better stuffed deep in a sack somewhere. The Cotter Pin Tool Book is a lovely piece that will hold all your emergency tools and keep you on your journey, not stuck calling AAA or your buddies to help you out.

Cafe Racer XXX 865cc Coffee

Because Cafe Racers raced from one coffee shop to the next in the old days, it would make sense that each rider was hopped up on decent amounts of caffeine in between. Make sure your motorcyclist buddy is properly caffeinated with whole roasted beans from our friends over at Cafe Racer XXX with their 865cc blend.

Biltwell Mandana

Half-face helmets and are a staple of the cafe racer crowd and so are beards. For the men and women that have a difficult time growing facial hair, the Biltwell Mandana suffices nicely. Screen printed beards and mustaches lend to the appearance of a gruff, rugged exterior, while protecting that baby face from dirt and debris while riding.

Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 7300

If you are going to keep that beard, you need to keep it maintained and not let it get out of control like some wiley hippie. The Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 7300 has a total of 19 length settings and range from a super short 0.5 mm (1/64″) stubble setting, to full on beard 18 mm (23/32″). It comes with a charging adapter, cleaning brush, and two combs (trimming and contour). Best of all it has a vacuum system to catch small hairs as they are trimmed.
