Kaffeemaschine is a relatively new and up-and-coming European bike shop founded by Axel Budde on the premise that, “The rocket upon which I lie and clutch, should explode, rumble and hiss beneath me, as it propels me through the countryside, all the while reminding me it’s a combustion engine that moves me. That’s why it’s so eerily compelling and desirable to dominate it.” We have no reason to disagree with his sentiments, or the bikes he’s producing–especially when they look like the 1984 Le Mans Mark III KM23 bike you see here. Commissioned by the head of the Historic Archive of Porsche and built on the 1984 850 Le Mans Mark III platform, this cafe racer is nothing short of a head-turner, and we’re not just talking about the bright green paint job. The donor bike was stripped down to its base parts before being rebuilt from the ground up with a number of performance improvements like an upgraded boost capacity of 1000cc, proprietary camshaft, lightened flywheel and an in-house exhaust. It might top out at a horsepower just shy of triple digits, but we imagine it still feels like you’re riding a rocket.
