Buell XB9 Cafe Racer by IRON Pirate Garage

IRON Pirate Garage doesn’t care what you think. They’re going to do what that want regardless of what is considered acceptable and trending in the industry. So when they decided to put together their own Cafe Racer, we knew they were going to set themselves apart from what has been the norm in the world of custom motorcycles.

Their Buell XB9 features a short wheelbase, slender 175kg dry weight, and boasts 92Nm of torque thanks to the build’s engine. It’s clearly a rebellious bike with the Buell’s front forks swapped out for a set of Progressive Suspension units and a Motogadget Mini display for the rider. It’s a decked-out industrial Cafe Racer that Iuri Castaldi of the Italian custom bike shop should be proud of when cruising out and about in the city streets. No doubt we’re over here wishing we could do the same. Not bad IRON Pirate Garage. Not bad at all.
