Only recently has Thailand gotten into the custom bike world. And in doing so bigger players such as Japan and Euro bike outfits have encroached upon Thailand in their market expansion efforts. So with all eyes turning toward the Southeast Asian country, the country’s most prominent contributor to the scene, K-Speed Customs, has worked to build some of the baddest bikes around.
Take this blacked-out Ducati M1100 for example. Dubbed the “Darth Mostro” for obvious reasons, this nuanced cafe racer began with a removed stock seat and tail section, exposing the rear wheel and converting the bike into a solo ride. The seat hosts a small rear hump, finished in quality black leather and the stock tank was left in place. Powering this dark Sith is an intimidating 1078cc L-Twin with Superbike-derived vacuum die-cast crankcases that save the bike over 6.5 lbs in weight. All told the bike is an all black powerhouse Ducati that rides more like a bat out of hell than an Italian luxury racing bike. [H/T: PipeBurn]
