Starting with a Le Mans 3, Dirty Seven has created a wild custom that started with the owner’s search of interesting tail lights on vintage cars. He found some replica 1959 Cadillac taillights, and that’s what inspired the styling. In the builder’s words, “I tried to marry Italian class with a spirit of vintage American cars and vintage cafe racer racing spirit.” Did he succeed?

Obviously there’s an extensive amount of custom work here, but the high-level points include a 1,000cc kit, Bitubo rear shocks, Z1000 fork, custom made triple trees, Gilles handlebars, replica 1930s Ratier silencers, Beringer brake calipers and master cylinders, Dynatek electronic ignition, hydraulic clutch conversion, 36mm Dell’Orto carbs, and more. For more information, check out this article on Pipeburn by our buddy Tim Huber. Per the seller, “We decided to call it “La Monica” because we have a thing going on with all our friends that always give women names to their motorcycles. Since this is a beautiful and “sexy” Italian bike the first name that came to me was Monica as “Monica Bellucci”.
