Welcome to the Naked Racer, where dreams become a reality!
Naked Racer is not a nude bar. Although that could be fun, it is purely related to the fact that here at Antique Motorcycles we ride bikes without fairings. Bikes without fairings are referred to as Naked Bikes. We thought it was a fun name, and fun is what we are all about!
Our logo is designed around the most iconic racing motorcycle the world has ever seen, namely the Rollie Free Vincent aka Bathing Suit bike, where in 1948 Rollie Free set a land speed record of 150.313 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. In a previous attempt earlier that day he attained 149 mph, so on his next run, he stripped down to his bathing suit and he slipped on a pair of beach shoes and a Pudding bowl helmet and he laid down on the bike in the prone position and cracked the 150 mph barrier. We thought it was a lot more fun to put a naked girl on the bike, Rollie isn’t quite as pretty. Hope you like it!
What began as a small motorcycle shop in the suburbs of Melbourne in 1988 soon turned out to be a motorcycle dealership and a warehouse filled with over 250 motorcycles on display and for sale, ranging from the early 1900’s through to the late 1980’s.
Proprietor, Johnny Gee, of Antique Motorcycles has had a dream to expand and make this spectacular venue into a tourist (and of course local) hotspot! Situated in Antique Motorcycles’ showroom at 1 Grange Road, Cheltenham Victoria, Johnny Gee has followed his life’s moto ‘Live the Dream’ and we present to you, the Naked Racer Café – Bar!
Located opposite the Moorabbin Airport and down the road from DFO shopping centre, Antique Motorcycles has already been hosting corporate functions and birthday celebrations for over 10 years. With the rising demand for a truly unique venue experience, we have made it official with the opening of the Naked Racer Café – Bar.
Providing a fully licensed venue that caters for small and large groups, the Naked Racer Café and bar is the ultimate venue for your next event. We offer a number of event packages to choose from, and special requests can be accommodated.
With such an amazing backdrop, why wouldn’t you want to make the Naked Racer and Antique Motorcycles your next ride or party destination!
