SHADOW - 6-01

Written by Donny Ariyanto

The custom bike scene, like any other art form, often finds it self bending to the will of fashion. But there’s no shame in that – music, painting, dance and almost any other genre you care to name have to endure the same challenge.

Another month and another killer build from us. After (successfully) trying our hand at building a few Scrambler styled builds we’ve returned to our Cafe Racer roots. Blending new engine performance with 70’s styling our simply design, which translates to “classic speed”, was built from a 2012 KTM Duke 200 as a donor bike.
