In less than a week I’ll be traveling to Maryland for a very exciting project with Cafe Racer XXX and Saint Motor Company. You may recall Saint being mentioned both in the Monster Project (Phase 9: 748 Front End on 750 Monster, Phase 8: Fixing the Tank) and the very popular green cafe racer Ural.
Ladies and Gents, thar she blows. My 1998 Ducati Monster 750 Dark with a Superbike 748 front end on it. The process getting to this point was long, drawn out and annoying. But having adjustable, strong, awesome front shocks is so very worth it.
Take a journey with me through the somewhat painful steps taken to get to this point. There’s gold at the end of the rainbow!
Last I posted, I was flimflamming about what kind of logo to put on the tank of the bike. The paint scheme was already all planned (thank you all for the suggestions, though) and I just needed to top it off with the right version of the Ducati logo for the mood of the bike.
At this point, I can finally show you guys something definitive… so you can see where I’m going with this whole project. (Full views and videos after the cut.)
I’m not sure if I’ve stated this or not, but I’m going for a retro stylized mean lookin’ moto. Put these in your brain and shake ‘em around: Classy, ivory, racing, glitter. What do you get? The best paint scheme ever.
