To keep you and other people on the road safe, your motorcycle needs a couple of lights. A wide range is not the only thing we can offer you, when you decide to order at Cafe Racer Webshop. Here you’ll also enjoy fast, tracked and professional shipment and personal service from fellow cafe racer enthusiasts!
There are some regulations when it comes to the custom rear lights of a motorcycle. A solo motorcycle needs at least one tail light, but you can also choose to have two lights. If you go for the latter you have to take the placement of the lights into mind. The tail lights need to be mounted:
Besides the positioning, make sure that the tail light of your motorcycle has a red colour. This way the riders behind you know that you’re riding away from them, instead of towards them.
Are you planning on buying smoked tail lights, or do you want to smoke them yourself? Make sure they are still legal and you’re good to go. Legal smoked rear lights require bright bulbs, so the light is still visible to the road users behind you. Besides that, it’s not allowed to tint them more than 50% nor to paint them in a different colour than red. If you want to be sure the light is bright enough, you can make use of LED-bulbs: most times LED rear lights are brighter than Halogen lights. In our webshop you’ll find a wide range of LED tail lights!
Motorcycles first used on or after 1 April 1986 must have a brake light that switches on when you use the brakes. These rear brake lights should light up immediately when you use the brake and also turn off immediately when you release the brake. When mounting a new brake light, make sure it’s in the central position of your cafe racer or to the offside. At Cafe Racer Webshop we have plenty of cool rear brake lights available. Also be sure to check out our LED brake light strip, which can be used with a LED brake light strip loop kit to give your cafe racer that typical minimalistic look!
If you’re looking for a tail light bulb or an entire new rear tail light for your cafe racer, you’re sure to find it in our range. When buying your new cafe racer rear light, you can choose to buy a combination in the form of a rear number plate light: two birds with one stone! Didn’t find the tail light you were looking for? Don’t hesitate to contact us for advice or the answers to all of your questions. Motorcycle related of course ;-) We’re happy to help you along your journey of building your own cafe racer!
