Ducati Monster – Overdrive Customs

We’ve seen it clear as day over recent years, that simply some of the best old-school V-Twin muscle comes from Japan, and there are plenty of American builders who have more than mastered the multi-cylinder. So small is the global village of custom bike building that you can never predict what you’ll find and where. But there is also a natural pull to return to our roots and for Italian Matteo Massaro this meant not only building a Ducati, but a bike that had been with him for the best part of two decades. So, with the V engines moved to the side in the Overdrive Customs workshop, he set about working his magic to turn this 2000 Ducati Monster 600 into something so exquisite, it elicited the name ‘Envy’ from its stablemates.

Matteo hails from the stunning city of Venice and followed the Guy Martin path into the world of motorcycles. “At the age of 14, tired of school, I started my career as a mechanic on heavy vehicles, first Volvo and then Scania. Over the years, my passion for motorcycles increased until I decided to leave the big trucks and open my own motorcycle workshop.” For the past seven years, Matteo has been operating Overdrive and it’s a workshop that could quite easily be located anywhere in the US of A, with plenty of cool Americana and lots of amazing Harley-Davidson builds.

They would be an important blueprint for future development. As such, they ushered in more prosperous times for Ducati. When they were released, theContinue reading “Ducati Pantah 600”

What might’ve been eh? An in-demand Bazza tries a Trident for size while mulling over the offer of a Triumph works ride for ’72. In the end he said ‘no thanks’ (also turning down a Ducati V-twin, Derbi and Suzuki GB) in favour of a factory Yamaha. Made sense. Kinda shame tho’…pic.twitter.com/aohmHLqR83
