SCM 1.0 Ducati Monster custom

Custom Ducati Monster by SCM.
I’m not quite sure what to make of this bike, but it’s certainly thought-provoking. Months ago, Simone Conti of Italy sent through some blurry, tentative snaps. And now the bike has just been professionally shot for an Italian magazine.

This is 24-year-old Conti’s first custom design—and he’s jumped right into the deep end. The motor is from a Ducati Monster 900 i.e. but the rest is almost completely hand-built.

Conti measured the original Monster trellis frame, and used the geometry to create his own frame with an AutoCAD program. This was then cut with a CNC machine and assembled into the skeletal creation we see here.

The bodywork is a mix of aluminum and carbon fiber, all created by hand. That includes the fairings, the air box, the seat, the snaking exhaust system and the gas tank. (It contains a mere six liters, so Conti is now making another that contains a mighty eight liters.)

And that’s the full extent of what we know about this machine. But sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Head over to Simone Conti’s Facebook page for more images of the Monster custom, and the build process.
