Ford SHOGUN Replica

A few years ago, Jay Leno invited us down to his garage to film a segment on our CS-1 Cafe Racer. While he was out doing a ride review of the bike, we wandered around the 122,000 s.f. "garage" like kids at an amusement park. In a sea of Ferraris and Bugattis and Lamborghinis, one little car stood out from all the rest: his silver Ford SHOGUN, a Festiva with the V6 from a Taurus SHO stuffed in the back.

Two engineers, Chuck Beck and Nick Titus, built just seven Shoguns, with Jay Leno being the most famous customer. In 1990, it cost about as much as a Porsche 911, but according to Leno, was faster.


Now, the guys from Ryca are going to attempt to build their own SHOGUN replica. With some ingenuity and modern technology (and some luck) maybe they can pull it off. Watch and find out!


Past Projects

CS-1 Cafe Racer

The CS-1 is a 650cc, air-cooled, single cylinder cafe racer designed to be lightweight, reliable, and fuel efficient for urban commuting. The engine and chassis components are sourced from the unsung hero of the thumper world: the venerable Suzuki S40.

"It's the perfect cafe custom kit for the times, an antidote to a world of mass-produced sameness."

RR-1 Hardtail Bobber

The RR-1 is a fresh new take on an iconic motorcycle style, forged from the engine and chassis of the Suzuki S40. The bolt-on tail assembly and custom kit components are seamlessly integrated into the classic lines of a hard tail bobber, resulting in a bike that's fun to build and a blast to ride.


CS-1X with FantomView

For it's 10th anniversary, the legendary RYCA CS-1 gets a radical new makeover. Featuring all of the style and innovation that made the original a smash hit, the updated CS-1X features new custom parts, finish options, and technology.

The world's first custom motorcycle built with augmented reality.

Sportster Cafe Racer

Since it's introduction in 1957, the Sportster has become one of the longest continuously produced motorcycles in history and a platform for countless model series and custom builds. The Sportster kit transforms the American legend into a modern custom Cafe Racer.
