What began as a good way to use old parts has turned into one of Ducati’s longest running models. Coffee shop parking lots are littered with Monsters of various capacities, and for good reason. The small(er) bore model makes a great first bike. The engine has enough power to grow into, but not so much as to scare away new riders. More experienced riders can enjoy a full-time full-throttle commute without too much fear of flashing lights. Not to mention, the V-twin exhaust note makes you feel like a man in traffic, especially paired with classic Termignoni cans.

Inspection of this 2012 Ducati Monster indicates that someone put a lot of work and money into this machine. Everyone has their own taste, but I’ll get right down to business: SINGLE SIDED SWINGARM. As a design exercise alone they are a sight to behold, and they are a signature piece of the bigger displacement Ducatis. For a price comparable to any other small bore Monster, you could have this 8,501 mile example (VIN: ZDM1RADN6CB060352) with the conversion already done. Other mods include frame sliders, bobbed seat, a custom routed exhaust, and Renthal bars. There is a scuff on the tank, but small blemishes often serve as the inspiration for beginning a build such as this, and the title remains clear. Would you put your finishing touches on this potential masterpiece, or leave someone else’s troubles alone?
