IMG 5412 thumb Ducati Monster Cafe RacerWhen Toni Kusima approached us about his home grown Ducati Cafe Racer project that started out a a crashed Ducati Monster 600, we assumed it would be just the basic bike with a few catalogue mods. Oh no. Toni has built a highly individual take on the classic aluminum clad cafe racer.

The first step was to junk the stock rims and replace them with some spoked Paul Smart Replica rims. Next came a lot of effort with the aluminum tank and rear seat section both to get it into shape and to polish and polish and polish it so it gleamed.
