The Badger - Enfield Rat Cafe Racer

Built by Leon at Cycle Icons, with Chumma and Tom from Ace Fireball doing the engine, The Badger made manifest, a 500+ mile ride from Trenton to Mid Ohio vintage motorcycle days where it raced in two races and survived. Not without issues, it was blowing oil, shakes and wobbles like hell, and 105 degree weather this Royal Enfield based, 500cc iron barrel engine with the ACE Fireball mods was a champ. Built in a rat cafe style, road and vintage race legal. Kitted for both a license plate, and a number plate. Built to both a price and a standard. Hi quality, low brow. Goes like stink. A ride it to the track, flog it in the heat of battle and ride it home proposition. Possible in this day and age?

Yep. What a blast, you can follow the story here: bulletproofbadger.com

The concept in part inspired by this; courtesy, Teddy Roosevelt:

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
