Duc to the chopping board.

Embarked on another cafe project. My Duc Supersport 1000SS is being chopped up to turn it into a cafe/naked.

This is the inspiration. Exact same model and year as mine.

In Original Condition.

Phase 1: get em naked.

Yeah, more aesthetic, less logic. Probably, built it for a living room display for a penthouse in Manhattan, rather than street riding.
It was built by a French (gotto be french!) builder called Lazareth. Holy Jesus!!
The bike is being sold in Las Vegas for 28K.
