Good bikeexif.com article on this bike..

Its interesting to read...they sourced everything and then replaced every part..once they found a certain very important piece, eh its no good. Well remake, change or alter it. Great write up on how to squeeze every dollar from a top dollar client while making them believe your scouring the earth for one of a kind jewels...its a funny read when you look at it that way

We found mint original handgrips stored in a vapor free humidity controlled warehouse. After consideration we decided to build a forge, make our own material and cast new grips to meet the high demands of building a unusable beast for the street...

How many of these have we seen before? I can almost repeat the list of modifications available off the shelf...

Well yes..
But it has some flow to its lines, unlike that other stuff we saw from the guy in Austria. The BS is a different discussion for another time.

The cafe bikes really show off the Tonti frame and gorgeous round fin cylinders, and I love the ingenuity and workmanship.  But good original bikes are disappearing fast.  Damn you Lino Tonti.  You just made everything too pretty.
