Michelle is a lady rider and cafe racer enthusiast from South Africa.

Her gorgeous custom 1980 Suzuki cafe racer was built by Custom Worx (website) in 2012, later acquired by V Custom Cycles- a custom bike shop located in Centurion, Gauteng.

The classic lines of the cafe racer design with the powdercoated stock GS wheels is just fantastic.

Michelle was happy with the performance of the bike before taking it to Custom Worx for a revamp. Clip ons, a shortened tail, matte pearl white paint job and red racing stripe are a few of the details.

She added Steve McQueen’s old racing number 278 to the tail and her helmet, an ode to the king of cool.
