Then the entire front of the Ducati 848 motorcycle was inserted, along with some parts with the Ducati 748. In order to make the visual appearance more complete, new triumphs from the model Triumph Truxton 1200 were also put in. The new Brembo discs – the front with the Triumph 675 – were also used and Aprilia brake
Linda and Pol completely disassembled the air-cooled DOHC four-cylinder unit and pulled it out. They decided on a hydraulic clutch, the exhaust system originates with the BMW S1000R and is slightly adjusted to fit on a motorcycle.

This “cafe racer” shows that size definitely does not matter. At least when the size of the workshop is concerned.
