A couple of years ago, we were staying at a cheap hotel on the outskirts of London, right next to the overground system train line. It was close to a station and they're 2 carriage with an MTU turbo diesel engine with an auto ZF gearbox.....sounded cool and hearing a train change gears was a spin out!

DesmoHarley ? Italian American V-Twin Completed


Displacement:
80 cubic inches/1340cc
Compression ratio:
10.3:1
Carburetors:
2X38mm flatslide Mikuni
Pistons:
Keith Black flat top (8.5:1 in a stock 80 inch Harley)

Chris says:

The heads are the early large valve 900ss type, both the heads are rear heads with the front turned around 180 degrees and running a front head cam, this gives me two heads with horizontal fins and orients the carbs and exhausts in better positions for the 45 degree layout.

I didn’t need to do any head work to get a 10.3:1 ratio because the Ducati has a fairly low ratio with domed pistons, so by going with flat top pistons with the extra displacement, the ratio worked out perfectly.

Chris had to engineer his own gear drive system for the cams and it came out great. Specially made Axtell cylinders have their own bolts to attach to the cases plus bolt holes in the correct pattern for the Ducati heads.

Kraftek frame, a four speed Harley Davidson transmission, all powered by a 2.5 liter Alfa Romeo V6. There are six individual exhaust pipes, a pair of Weber downdrafts, with fork, discs and calipers from a Kawasaki ZXR750.

one of my personal favorites

Roland Sands Design / KTM 525 EXC Café Moto |














It doesn’t get much better than this” – Bikers Cafe Crew

What a lovely photo of a beautiful girl sitting on a beautiful bike. For sure, she is one lucky girl – as the bike that she is sitting on is the latest KTM Cafe Racer custom build by Roland Sands Design. But vice versa – the bike is lucky too. The closest way onto describing this motorcycle piece of art would be “the next evolution of the Café Moto concept”. Wondering what is that color? Ripe California grown tangerine.

This bike started as a rough build couple of months back, as one customer brought his 525cc KTM supermoto with an idea to be transformed into a Cafe Racer. From that point onwards bike started to become much more refined with each and every step. It received a real gas tank, not some glass fiber version. All the bodywork is hand made aluminum, fabricated in RSD compound, with tricked out titanium exhaust from FMF. Tail, tank and headlight mount were painted in Candy Orange Flake paint by Chris Wood (Airtrix). Forks and shocks are lowered, custom subframe accept the battery and electronics.
