Beauty in the Beast
By Anthony van Someren - 11 Mar 13
To really make your mark on the Monster you need to remove the tank, but as this was off the menu the guys concentrated on sorting out the fugly seat setup, handmaking the seat and a whole new rear end of the chassis. Next up were the Headlight and clunky clocks, replaced with neater items with the speedo from Motogadget.
Indicators and mirrors were also swapped out for much nicer items, and although she retains the trademark Ducati red frame the tank was repainted by Pedro & Co in a metallic grey using the old school Ducati 'double-line' logo from the late 70s. Our favourite of all the Ducati marks.
It doesn't get any better than Motogadget.
Updated rear end is a huge improvement.
Overall it's a pretty modest upgrade leaving the rest of the bike stock, including the exhaust and even the end cans, but it still makes a huge difference to the feel of the bike. If only they came like this outta the factory. Cafe Racer Dreams have put some Beauty into the Beast.
