The Caffeine Racer

Purchased October 2011

Completed May 2012


This black beauty is a 1979 Yamaha SR500 sourced from Sydney via the internet. Smuggled across the border to Victoria, it underwent an intense beastification process which saw the Dusting sidecar fitted with La Spaziale two group-head commercial coffee machine and wash area with twin sinks and hot running water.

The coffee machine sucks filtered water from the 100 litre tank also built in to the body of the sidecar.

Including fabrication, rebuild and restore, the whole process took six months.

The Caffeine Racer is registered for the road and with the Department of Health.
