Ace Cafe Racer
As is widely acknowledged, a Cafe Racer is
a unique breed of motorcycle that brings
together the core elements of speed, handling,
style and sheer fun
A Cafe Racer has always been a very personal
affair for its rider, and though hardly any two
machines will look the same, through the last fifty
years they have all followed on one idea
Inspired by all who have contributed to the Cafe
Racer style in the last half century, we take pride
in announcing a very personal affair by introducing
the Ace Cafe Racer built by Stonebridge Motor Co
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hinckley Triumph and built by T3 Racing in conjunction with Ace Cafe London's Stonebridge Motor Company, the Ace 904S Thruxton Special brings together the timeless lines of the classic British motorcycle with state-of-the-art hi-tech and modern high performance.
Other than the chassis, and with no aftermarket or commercially available parts being used, every component has been specifically manufactured for the Ace 904S over a two year development programme.
The electronic dashboard, designed by HM Quickshifter, features a full digital display with revolutions, road speed, engine temp and gear position. Also displaying fault codes, warning symbols and is fully programmable to include shift lights. (Includes backlight for night display).
The engine is a 904cc big bore kit with high lift cams, lightened generator and a polished and ported cylinder head. The 'carburettors' are fuel injection units, modified from 36mm to 39mm with T3's own 'butterflys'. RPM being raised to 8500, the bike also features a HM Quickshifter.
Front and rear suspension is designed and engineered by Nitron, an Oxford based British manufacturer, with 53mm bespoke front fork units, with 20mm cartridge kits to each leg, nitride coated stanchions, triple lower clamp and engraved upper clamp all made from aircraft spec 7750 aluminium. The forks feature fully adjustable preload, compression and rebound.
The bespoke rear shocks include high/low speed compression, rebound, reload as well as adjustable ride height.
Front and rear wheels are bespoke to carry 17 inch 120 and 160 Michelin Power One tyres. Braking is by 320mm discs and specially designed six piston calipers from ISR.
Handmade stainless steel exhaust pipes ensure an authentic and very British sound.
Paintwork by Darren Horton Designs - all logos are airbrushed.
The Ace 904S Thruxton Special, a limited edition, individually numbered series of 15 bikes.

Ace 675CR Street Triple Special
Built by Jack Lilley Ltd, West London's renowned and long established Triumph dealer in collaboration with Ace Cafe London's Stonebridge Motor Company to celebrate to 10th anniversary of the legendary cafe having fully reopened, as a Limited Edition series of 10 individually numbered machines, the Ace 675CR Street Triple Special is based on Triumph's popular and highly successful Street Triple R, a global hit since its introduction in 2008.
The Ace 675CR is a Street Triple R with more spec, style and attitude! The torque and sound of the liquid cooled 12-valve triple cylinder motor, running through heat-wrapped exhaust down pipes and Arrow end cans, combined with a close ratio 6-speed gear box and equipped with Triumph's Quickshifter, produces performance and agility that makes for an exciting and exhilarating ride.
Individually numbered and with bespoke "Ace" graphics and paintwork to include to seat and radiator cowls, belly pan and to the lightweight five-spoke cast 17" aluminium wheels applied by finish experts Altamuma of Camberley, Surrey, each of the 10 machines is fitted with a host of German TUV compliant performance parts from LSL, adjustable rear-sets, clip-ons, grips and levers, mirrors, brake reservoirs (front and rear), "tail tidy", crash protectors (forks, swingarm, clutch & frame) and, in true cafe racer style, a single, powerful 7" halogen 60/55 headlight.
Top notch fully adjustable race spec Kayaba front and rear suspension, "hugger" protected Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa shod wheels, confidence inspiring four piston radial calliper brakes and twin floating discs up front, all combine to make the Ace 675CR Special a great ride on the twisties!
