Ducati Monster M900 – Motors

Like it or not, but I a theory that goes of like this – anyone who a motorbike has a fair amount of kid in Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not calling immature here; it’s not that at all.

What I’m at is that fact that a certain wide-eyed enthusiasm motorcyclists have that that they still some degree of that open-minded and untarnished approach to that is usually leached out of as they swallow the bitter of ‘responsibility’ and slowly fade to For me, I’ll always be part Which probably explains why bike rocks every in my body.

To me it’s look takes the of Battlestar Galactica, Evel and Megaforce all rolls it into one big TV show wet dream. Now if you’ll me, I’ll be in my pyjamas playing my wind-up Kenievel Stunt on the living room floor.

Earle, owner of Earle is an experienced automotive designer work in his portfolio for the likes of Audi and VW. He’s also an off-roader. Currently living in but originally hailing from he’s always keen to get his on and has even entered himself in 6 day trials.

Twice. We’re guessing the whiff of flat track in the alongside the Kenievel-ness isn’t a at all.

Wondering what to do his ageing M900 Monster, decided to build a taller, bad-… bike utilising the Italian v-twin and a classic proportion; horizontal profile, narrow wheels, flush plate and high bars. he wanted it to keep it’s

“Flat track always to me,” says Alex. “I the brutal look of these and felt this could be the antidote to the current proliferation of racer bikes. This sub category of bike is a perfect of classic Southern California robust suspension, urban and meaty tires.”

Alex produced the concept then a 1/5 scale model in paper and styrene. Next the Ducati motor, and frame 3D scanned to facilitate the building of a version of the bike. The data was to mill a female mold which the fresh bodywork As this was being completed, the new aluminium tank, headers, and adaptors were fabricated.

The end result is bodywork with the fit and of an OEM production machine.

“The gas holds approximately 3 gallons of and includes the threaded bung for the and the factory fuel sending The cap is a Ducati Performance vented To keep the height of the tank the factory airbox was removed and with KN direct filters.

For the wheel, a Harley 19″ front was widened by 3 1/2″. An early 80s wheel was used almost in the front. Both require wheel spacing, bearing rotor and sprocket surface The parts were then in a black wrinkle finish.”

Alex is planning to produce all the parts as a kit for builders. It currently any first generation Monster and it could easily be altered to fit XR 1200s or a Triumph. “The is very similar to the original Manx dune buggy A fibreglass body on a a lightly street legal frame. To support the builder, I will provide the fuel tank, wheels and headlight assembly.”

If interested, and we know you are, why not Alex and find out more? And sure you send our regards you’re at it.
