That looks great. Maybe the tank appears a little too bulky, but it fits when you consider the Monster heritage. Great job though, the polished aluminum looks very pretty and those wheels are hot.

Great job!!! Bloody amazing, the best cafe styled monster I've ever seen! I love monsters for their tough looks & their sound (I only have a 600, which is powerful enough for me). I love cafe racers because they are just the coolest things on two wheels. I've never seen all this combined Till now! I saw a 750ss cafe style on wrench monkeys.com that comes kinda close but it ain't like this.

Where are you located? Anychance on getting a seat done? I have a motorgadget mini but I'll wait till I get my clip one before I get that added.
Thanks for posting up your project!

Excellent looking transformation! Beautiful job you've done with the tank and rear cowl section. I like the black and white shot also....

Thank's for the comments. Tank looks little bit bulky becourse Monsters frame is so small and there is no room, so battery, coils, wires and airfiltters must be hide inside of the tank. Even if look so bulky it's take only 15,5 litres gasoline
...and cicii, i live in Finland

Yep, understandable. Still, you're obviously a skilled craftsman and it looks awesome.

Killer bike! That aluminum work must have been tough for the gas tank. You smoothed out the top surfaces of the tank better than some factory produced tanks. Well executed.
