Kevin Dunworth has built some very intriguing machines that have caught the attention of corporations and collectors alike over the past couple years. He refers to his style "Retro-Mod" which essentially takes race inspired design from every generation and applies it to streets bikes. Most recently he has leaned towards air-cooled twins and Triumph unit construction engines. "I hate being pigeon-holed", says Kevin when asked about being a Triumph guy. It just kind of happened; you can blame my Dad and all his Triumph pals. I love all bikes but Triumphs just kept showing up at the shop.”
His latest creation “Bucephalus” is a proto-type and being offered for $19,800 to a collector or fan of his work. Made from lightweight 7075 aluminum frame design, he invested countless hours in the geometry and has poured heart, sweat and way more cash than the asking price so he hopes it goes to a good home. A little history… this bike was debuted last year at Michael Lichter and Paul d'Orleans "Cafe Racer" show at Sturgis and featured in the collaborative coffee table book. It was on the cover of "Bike Craft” magazine with a 6 page spread. It was used for the Triumph America Castrol Moto social media campaign and toured under the Triumph brand for the IMS circuit. It was featured at the Motorcycle Film Fest, on many blogs such as Silodrome and part of the Austin “Hand Built”.

This is just one of Kevin Dunworth’s pedigreed customs that has led Cafe Racer XXX to collaborate with him. Next year, we will offer a limited number of Cafe Racer XXX builds for sale built exclusively by Kevin. We look forward to joining forces on some of the best exotic cafes he has yet to build. Chime in on what platform you would like to see us start with. And last, welcome Kevin Dunworth as the XXX builder.
