A few years ago I was searching for more information on customizing motorcycles and trying to find a support group to bounce ideas off regarding repairs and builds. I stumbled across a group of riders in Sydney called Sydney Cafe Racers (SCR).
These men and women build, modify and ride classic styled bikes. Bobbers, cafe racers, trackers and choppers. Sydney Cafe Racers SCR, created by Mark Hawwa, have grown quite substantially over the year’s, and have done some phenomenal things for the custom motorcycle crowd, and more importantly for charity worldwide.
One of the major events that Mark Hawwa and his team have achieved is an annual Distinguished Gentlemans Ride DGR. DGR started local but quickly spread across the planet where many cities worldwide run DGR on the same day each year, showcasing some of the best classic, classic styled, or custom motorcycles you’ll ever see. Top this off with all riders required to dress “dapper” it’s a sight to see. Not only is this an amazing event, but it also raises a huge amount money and awareness for research to prevent prostrate cancer and more recently Movember.
Mark Hawwas other great achievement with Sydney Cafe Racers SCR an event called Throttle Roll, where they hold a street party with their amazing motorcycles on display, great food truck’s, some booze bars and some kicking bands.
This year Throtle Roll was held in Marrickville on Easter Saturday. The crowds were strong, the bikes were legendary and food cooking left us salivating to eat as much as humanly possible.
This network that Mark Hawwa and the team at SCR has built was the exact reason I wanted to start Sydney Coupes and Roadsters, to grow a group of like-minded, passionate car enthusiasts, that want to get together, share stories and advice and go for social drive togethers.
If you are into custom motorcycles as well as cars, be sure to head over to Sydney Cafe Racers SCR and Throttle Roll and get involved with these legends, as well as supporting their fundraising efforts using Distinguished Gentlemans Ride DGR.
