When I discovered Lakic’s CX on Bike Exif I was impressed by the way he turned this boring 80’s road bike into a modern Cafe Racer. After googling I realized Sacha Lakic had his office in Luxembourg so I immediately contacted him to shoot the CX. Luckily he liked my portfolio and gave a positive response to organize a shooting with his CX500.
When I met Sacha I already knew he’d designed the Bimota Mantra and the Voxan Black Magic but what really struck me was how passionate he is about motorcycles. The creation of this CX was not ment as to surf on the hype of the “Cafe Racer” thing. For Sacha, a Cafe Racer is the perfect bike to ride and he designed this CX exactly for that.
We spent an afternoon shooting the bike on Goodyear R&D track and that was a blast!
