W800 by Regan Packer
” Fantastic fly screen, looks wonderful on the bike. Very high quality!”
W650 by Trevor Coverley
Trevor is the happy owner of this stunning W650, displaying a full monty of Omega aluminium parts. In his own words: “Very responsive and helpful with inquiries. Products shipped fast once completed. Fairing (and other Omega parts) looks great on the Kawasaki W650” We completely agree, Trevor!
SR400fi by Alvin Juban
This nice SR400fi is fitted with one of our comfortable Touring (Black Edition) seats.
T100 by Harry Bruinius
Harry modified his T100 Black with subtle and stylish add-ons, one of which is our Elite Leather seat. It compliments the overall look of the bike perfectly. Well done, Harry!
W650 by Kiyose Takaya
Big (sound) in Japan. Kiyose San showing off his nice W650 with our full scrambler exhaust system. In his own words:
“Good evening The exhaust has arrived! It’s super cool and the sound is powerful. It was fun touring! Thanks so much!”
Speed Twin by Stefan Goretskie
Here is Stefan’s mint Speed Twin with our Elite Leather Seat, giving a nice color accent to the glossy black bike.
Speed Twin by Sean Chastain
A great shot of Sean’s Speed Twin with one of our Crafton Atelier “Greaser” seats.
W800 by Hiroaki Matsumiya
A very cool shot of Hiroaki San’s W800. The Urban Scram exhaust and Vintage Scrambler seat look quite good on it too. ;-)
1200 Bonnie by Weiss Performance
Some of our customers go the extra mile and come up with truly outstanding projects. One of them is this stunning Bonnie designed by Weiss Performance, built by Bonneville Performance and now published on Return of the Cafe Racers. Read the full feature article here.
Speed Twin by Sean Chastain
A new look for Sean’s Speed Twin with a Crafton Atelier “Greaser” seat.
BMW by Andrew Knott
“Beautifully made, perfect proportions, worth every cent!.” Thank you for the support Andrew!
Street Twin by Jason Mak
“I ordered a seat and I was able to make some changes and request a stitch color. Communication was fast. Overall a great experience.”
Street Twin by Mike Richer
Mike sent us a few pictures of his completed project, a Street Twin tracker, mounting our JP Vintage seat “Brat Tracker” in dark night black and heat pressed tuck’n’roll pleads. In his own words: “I wanted to thank you and your team for the great seat I received.” The pleasure is ours Mike. ;-)
BMW R75/5 by Chris R.
Not something you see everyday…a classic BMW R75 mounting a Norton Manx aluminium gas tank. We made it possible for Chris and the tank is now available for all customers.
Suzuki DRZ400e by Dave Powell
Here’s a somewhat different bike from our usual cafes and scramblers based on Yamaha SR and Kawasaki W650. Dave used a Suzuki DRZ400 as a basis for a retro scrambler. He asked us to provide the tank and the mudguards, which we happily supplied. In his words: “Markus was so easy to deal with. I sent him an email with some custom modifications to one of their tanks and he had it made and delivered within weeks. The products are top notch.” Check out these cool pictures by photographer Brendan Allen.
Norton Commando by Sergio Azevedo
For his exceedingly rare and beautiful bike, Sergio wanted to find an equally stunning fairing. Our ‘Thruxton Fairing’ seemed to fit the bill and after some modifications, Sergio managed to get it fitted right and now it looks as if it was meant to be there all along.
Kawasaki W650 by Michael Oser
Michael used one of our custom made aluminium tanks (Brat) as the crowning finishing stroke to his build. We can’t but approve!
W650 Special by Andre' Sakellarides
Andre’ sent us this picture of his completed W650 Special. We helped him by providing the Mugello tank and this very special seat cowl. One of my personal favourites for its elegant yet aggressive lines.
W650 by Richard Fricker
Here’s the very happy and equally proud Richard, owner and creator of this superb W650. Richard wanted to build something very special and contacted us. We supplied him with the hardware (seat cowl, tank, fairing, fenders), but the rest is all his own accomplishment. Congratulation for this outstanding bike!
W650 by Gerard Michel
Gerard opted for the minimalist look of our “Sport” tank to complement his radical W650
W650 by Jan Briza
There’s a gorgeous W650 roaming the Czech countryside. It’s unmistakable, because it has a unique sound and look. The look was created by Jan, the sound by us with our full scrambler exhaust system. :-)
W650 By Elliot Wish
Here is a very particular W650, brainchild of US based Elliot Wish. Elliot got our “Original” aluminium tank but went a different route from most other customers. While most people cherish their polished alu tanks, Elliot decided to paint it. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we like it for its originality.
W650 by Paul Anderson
Paul liked our Vintage Scrambler seat, but preferred it with a black piping. We happily obliged of course and here is the result.
Kawasaki W650 / BSA 650 Look-Alike by John Bedson
A rather special bike today! Here we have a W650 nicely converted into a BSA 650. Admittedly, there aren’t many Omega parts on there (front drum brake and a few other bits and pieces), but still…we’re happy we could contribute a little to the realization of this labour of love.
W800 by J. Millar
In Joe’s own words……”Ordered a seat for my Kawasaki W800 and asked for some modifications to make it more of a bench seat. The communication was amazing and timely. Got the seat nicely wrapped and it exceeds my expectations! Highly recommend”.
Gian Luigi's Sport SR
For his project Gian Luigi from Italy used the Omega Racer SPORT aluminium tank, the aluminium side covers, a front fender, an exhaust pipe and the unique “The Sports” seat cowl, all provided by us. One of his friends made a pair of fiberglass ‘skirts’ to fit on the underside of the tank, so that its lines would converge with those of the seat cowl, an awesome job he did, too!
David Powell's SR Project
David Powell sent us some pictures of his completed Yamaha SR project, a very neat bobber/scrambler/brat. Whatever you want to call it, one thing is sure: it’s finger-licking good! On this bike, David used a pair of small aluminium side covers and modified them to accomodate the relocated ignition key.
1978 Yamaha SR500 by Edwin Esparra
This stunning SR500 was Edwin’s first attempt at a bike restoration. And what a job he did! The tank, fairing and many other bits and pieces come from Omega Racer, but it was his passion and skills to fit everything together with such a great result. We love it! Edwin: “Thanks Markus for the fairing, tank, advise and all the other bits to make it possible!”
Yamaha SR500 by Joachim Seidler
Joachim’s very shiny cafe racer is right up my alley. In fact, it reminds me of my own SR500 “Telos”. For his project Joachim got the tank and seat cowl combo from us, as well as both fenders and the top yoke. Outstanding bike!
Yamaha SR500 by Rob Lovelace
Rob just sent us this picture of his SR500 that he just fiished. The Mojave tank, seat cawl and fenders come from Omega Racer, but creativity and hard work are all his doing. Great job Rob!
Yamaha SR500 by Yannick Cornaz
Yannick is from Switzerland and he did a great job on his SR. He mounted our Misano tank and the big aluminium fairing. A perfect combination!
Yamaha SR500 by Guillaume and Ben Barras
From Hong Kong comes this Yamaha SR500, built by the brothers Guillaume and Ben Barras. For their build they’ve chosen one of our Norton aluminium tanks. Their creation even made it on BikeEXIF !
SR400FI by Erin Overcash
Erin used a number of Omega parts, including the tracker seat and the full scrambler exhaust system, resulting in this well balanced SR.
SR500 by Bob Smith
Bob just sent us these pictures of his SR with the new seat and Supertrapp Style muffler. He also left a nice feedback for us: Ordered Supertrapp style muffler and Café rocker V2 seat, Questions were answered quickly and courteously. Ordering was easy, Postage was prompt and Items received within 14 days as expected. Goods were exactly as described and fitted well. Quality was good, Would certainly deal with this supplier again. Thanks. Bob

Yamaha SR – Aluminium Fairing – Small
SR500 by Tim Dawe
Tim says it’s still a work in progress, but we think it looks great already. Tim mounted our Mojave Scrambler aluminium tank and side covers. Good job Tim!
SR400 by Daniel Hadorn
Just got this message from Daniel: Location: Switzerland Bike: Yamaha SR400 Owner: Daniel Hadorn Project: In progress ( to be continued…) Frontfender & Seat by Omega Racer. Thanks, this is great stuff! Precise, short, to the point…Swiss efficiency :-)))
SR400 by Simon Belcher
Simon asked us for a custom seat for his SR400. We obliged and supplied this seat. He loves it. We are happy. Life is good.
SR400 by Bradley Paul
Bradley is one of our returning customers. He built this gorgeous SR with our Navigator tank, Solor Racer seat and a few other bits and pieces.
Yamaha SR by Stu Lloyd
Stu just finished building his SR and sent us a couple of pictures of his masterpiece. There is a LOT of work involved here and we absolutely love it! For this project we supplied the fairing supporting brackets (Stu already had the fairing) and the Full Scrambler Exhaust System (Type 2). This is the definite proof that a scrambler pipe can look great on a racer too!
YAMAHA SR500 BY EXESOR MOTORCYCLES
Christian Schwarzenlander contacted us April 2013 inquiring about Omega Racer supplying him with a custom fairing for an upcoming build. It was interesting for us as it was the first time somebody had asked for a fairing without a headlight cutout. After a few emails back and forth, the idea was set in motion. He eventually went on to order an aluminium tank and a set of engine cooling fins with the fairing and we set to work.
Yamaha SR by Stu Lloyd
Some of our customers really go the extra mile to create something truly unique and outstanding. Stu’s Yamaha SR is certainly one of those bikes. In fact, it’s so good that it’s been featured on Return of the Cafe Racers, detailing the whole story of this project. Check it out. Our contribution was to provide the Full Scrambler Exhaust System (Type 2). Despite being designed for a scrambler type of bike, the exhaust is looking perfectly at home on a cafe racer t
W650 by Greg Robins
Greg decided it was time for a makeover and opted for our W650 Scrambler Combo Set. He gave his feedback: “Hi team at Omega Racer. Just thought I’d let you know I’ve fitted all my parts and am very happy. Great quality guys keep up the high standard. All in all the fit was excellent no cutting or bending.
I’ll be back for more parts no doubt.”
Triumph Bonneville by James Goodrum
James is modifying his Bonnie with subtle and carefully selected parts. One such part is the JP Custom Seat, which he really likes, and so do we. From James: Hi Markus, Thought I’d show you a few pics of the seat I ordered through you…thanks so much. It is really well made and has fantastic detailing. The spray and cloth were a nice touch as well. All in all, absolutely chuffed! Best Wishes, James
John Robinette's Street Twin
John got a JP Vintage Brat Tracker from us and he loves, loves, loves it. :-) In his own words: “I love, love, love my new Omega Racer JP Vintage Brat Tracker seat. It’s comfortable, looks amazing and I’ve already put over 1000 miles on it. Thanks for the brilliant craftsmanship and great customer service.”
Street Twin by Andreas Beeres
Andreas sent us this nice picture of his Street Twin with his brand new JP Vintage seat (Brat Style, dark rust, diamond stitching). He says he’s extremely happy with it and spreading the Omega gospel to anyone asking about the seat. Enjoy Andreas
Triumph T120 by Lionel Cosson
A truly remarkable T120 by our customer Lionel, who ordered a JP Vintage Sport Duo in black with dark rust seat partition to complement his beautiful build. Double thumbs up from Omega Racer!
T120 by Joshua Smith
Joshua opted for a nice JP Vintage seat “Step Cafe” in black to complement his matte black T120.
Street Twin by Lars Svensson
Lars found in the JP Vintage seat the perfect complement for his very aggressive Street Twin.
T100 by Landon Parham
Landon fitted a JP Vintage “British Monster” on his aircooled T100 and sent us some nice pictures as well as sparkling review, which we will frame and hang on the wall of success. :-) The British Monster seat is outstanding! Just modified my T-100 with the dark rust color and could not be happier. The quality of the material, detailed stitching pattern, and sturdiness of the seat-base are second to none–and I am extremely, EXTREMELY picky when it comes to quality. Not only is the seat profile slimmer than the original on my Bonneville, it is noticeably more comfortable. My wife also commented on the comfort after cruising around for an hour. I have made numerous modifications to my bike and, for the money, I can say the British Monster seat from Journey Project has made the biggest impact to the looks and comfort. What you see in the pics is what you get. The dark rust color is accurate to what it shows online and, even for the competitive price point, I just don’t see where you can go wrong. It leaves nothing to be desired. I am beyond pleased!
Triumph T100 by Ryan Norgart
Street Twin by Tom Marrone
Tom send us this very cool picture of his Street Twin, mounting the MotoTrio short front fender.
T100 by Brian Warchol
Brian send us his feedback and a picture of his new parts: “The ‘Brat Seat and Rack’ are both fantastic! The side panels with venting really gives the bike the ‘right’ look- timeless.”
CB750 by Alberto Gonzalez
Alberto mounted our ‘Universal Big Fairing’ on his splendid CB750. A classic, timeless beauty!
