Nice work. Is this for anyone on here?

Looks like a café racer special theyre building.....I recall a somewhat "butchered" DB1 being sold in the UK this year....essentially it was just a frame from Bimota that existed as original.....Ducati swingarm, USD forks...900ss engine....and very dodgy bodywork......

without bodywork...and another DB1 having new zorst fitted

And as it was when sold in May this year with some sort of Ducati café racer sort of bodywork...aka Biscuit tin

I shudder when I hear the words 'Bimota' and 'cafe racer' mentioned together. The result is not usually a good one. Just like the Streetfighter fad of 20 years ago.

Elegance, grace, style - scrupulously expunged from a bike which boasted them all in the minutest quantities in the first place Laughing

Replace the seat with a black plank and put on some dickey headlight and it's a cafe racer.

A good business venture would be to go and buy up all the seats that are being thrown away, ready to sell them to the restorers when the cafe racer fad is over.
