"Cafe Racer" (TV show) on Velocity is a reality series that conquers the need for speed.

There's no other feeling comparable to hitting 100 mph on a cafe racer. The signature rumble of the engine, the indelible smell of burning rubber, and the unmatched heritage of "cool" have made this two-wheeled subculture the home for Hollywood stars, barnyard builders, and thrill seekers worldwide. Velocity takes viewers inside this underground society with the return of the fan-favorite franchise that conquers the need for speed. Hosted by motorcycle aficionado, Mike Seate, "Cafe Racer" promises an exclusive look at the culture and craft behind these storied bikes.

Now in its third season, "Cafe Racer" hosts a trip into the rich cultural past, present, and future of the cafe scene. In perhaps the most influential motorcycle movement in history, cafe racers emerged in post-WWII Britain, from a group of disenchanted youth. Cafe racer culture still thrives around the globe as motorcycles are made over to fit the look and feel of the original bikes. These rides are often stripped of excess parts, and their engines tuned for maximum speed, in order to achieve the Holy Grail of cafe racing: hitting the 100-mph mark, or "Doing the Ton."

In the seasons premiere episode, "Cafe Racer" visits the legendary NCR Ducati shop in Italy to acquire exclusive parts for a one-of-a-kind build. Future episodes will include a Bostrom Brothers' surprise build; lighting fast tests at Little Talledega; a controversial custom build that will exceed six figures; and, an exclusive look into the Cretins, America's first cafe racing society.

"Cafe Racer" Season 3 is produced for Velocity by Chet Burks Productions. For Velocity, Dave Lee is executive producer and Shaan Akbar is associate producer. For Chet Burks Productions, Chet Burks is executive producer and Ed Coughlin is the senior show producer.
