With so many custom motorcycle shops around the world constantly producing one-off bikes, it’s become exceedingly difficult to deliver a build that stands out as being truly unique, though that’s nonetheless exactly what Dotto Creations has managed to do with its debut project, a monocoque-bodied Honda CX500 that’s been christened “Biancaneve” — Italian for “Snow White.”

Dotto was founded and is headed up by Francesco Iannuzzi and Gianluca Bartolini, a pair of talented automotive designers that met while serving at legendary design house Pininfarina. In their spare time, the Turin-based team has taken a 1979 CX500 and radically transformed the longitudinally-mounted v-twin. Now sporting a low-profile Highsider LED headlight, the front-end of the build has been lowered and fitted with a pair of clip-ons that, when coupled with a taller set of Hagon shocks out back, afford the Honda a markedly more aggressive riding position. The project’s piece de resistance is undoubtedly its custom composite monocoque bodywork that features a tailpiece that sits flush on the tank and is mated to a linkage system that enables the cowling to hinge back and upward to expose a handmade Alcantara and leather saddle. To see more of the project, you can check out the Dotto Creations website linked below.
