Our Passion

We create real rides. Custom crafted café racers, bobbers, and trackers that combine form and function into a feast for every sense. Each bike a work of art as individual and awesome as their owners’ personalities. So, if you’re after a bike that truly and  uniquely expresses your inner rebel rocker, or the retro-racer and larger-than-life thing is more your scene, you’ll be wanting to talk to us.

Our Kit

Of course, having the raddest ride on the road is just the start. You’re going to have to match your ride with equally great accessories. From quality retro-styled leather jackets, helmets and goggles to a bunch of other cool kit for the café racer and bobber devotee, we’ve got some rocking stuff for you to play with – in between ogling the “bikes-in-progress” art in our integrated workshop of course.

Our Sustenance

Yup, not only do we build and sell prestige bikes and stuff, but our shop includes an in-house café. So if you need the perfect place to pull that solo work-session or business meeting (did we mention the free Wi-Fi?) or just to relax, pop in and get our pro barista to keep you caffeinated in lip-smacking retro-style, while you feast on something delicious from our menu.

Our Work

Our business is retro classic and custom motorcycle builds and restorations. We also offer maintenance on all brands of motorcycles. Other services include accident damage assessment & repair, engine and gearbox rebuilding and ultrasonic cleaning. Prefer to work on your own bike? Bring all your engineering, spray painting and upholstery to Retro Prestige and we will project manage all your ‘out’ work to the same prestige quality.

A fresh and new feel with a buzzing atmosphere around the coffee bar. Fresh gourmet sandwiches and definitely some of the best coffee in Cape Town. The bike shop section is supporting a big craze, with their bikes for sale, and high-end parts available for the at-home café racer builder. This franchise has combined two radical concepts, and the result is fantastic we think.
