Cafe racer hangouts in PP?

Post by jah steu »

My brother is visiting Phnom Penh soon and he is a fan of cafe-racer style motorcycles. There are hundreds of these around PP, but is there a known venue where they tend to hang out day or night?

There were lots of them around a few years ago, but I don't see many around nowadays.

Saw them at the smile mart on 63 corner with 182 a lot. Around 7 or 8 in the evening.
Very interesting bikes that some of these guys had and haircuts to match.

Motor Cafe moved up to st.337 in Toul Kork, but honestly I don't see any real gatherings there. His best bet is perhaps to join the Gentleman's Ride 2019 which is coming up around this time of year usually ("Movember", etc.) as there is always a gathering of said cafe racer type blokes.

There's a moto shop called Home Workshop in TK that specializes in cafe racers, trackers, etc., they organize rides and things like that. They've got a FB page that they post stuff on that might help.
