I’ve watched Ad Hoc Cafe Racers evolve since featuring one of their very first builds back in 2012. Frontman David González has developed a unique style that is somehow raw and refined. Despite his workshops cafe racer oriented name, his portfolio boasts a wide range of scramblers, trackers and cafe styled builds. It’s always great to feature motorcycles created by builders like David, but it’s not often we get to the full story behind the individual, their history or, most importantly, their motivation. Thankfully today I have the opportunity to do exactly that.
‘For This’ is a new documentary presented by Lamono and Hic & Nunc Filmworks. In this up close and personal film, David González shares the story of how Ad Hoc Cafe Racers came to be. The film was just premiered at the Barcelona Ace Cafe and I now have the honour of releasing it exclusively here online. Grab yourself a drink, get comfortable and enjoy.
“David González is not an artist, neither a designer or a mechanic. He grew up surrounded by oil, between “Made in Spain“ motorcycles. Tired of a less dynamic and creative job he decided to give birth to ADHOC Cafe Racers. Purity and minimalism.”
