As a staff writer for the "Pittsburgh Tribune-Review" in Pennsylvania, USA, he also knows how to tell a story. He has conducted dozens of interviews with riders and builders, many now reliving their youth again, that of an original rocker.The building of cafe racers themselves is at an all time high to the extent that several well-known motorcycle manufacturers are busy launching their own Cafe Racer model thus making it easy for all to join the revivalist 'movement'.
