Motobene MB1/03 09 April 15

Motobene is a one-man custom bike building business based in Switzerland. It is owned and operated by Andreas Fraefel who has a long time interest in motorcycles since he was 14 years old. He was taken 'under the wing' by prestigious two-wheeled enthusiasts who trained him as a mechanic who specializes in Ducatis. He not only services and repairs customer's bikes but he builds them too. Not surprisingly most of his builds are based on Ducatis and the one featured here is his creation based on a Ducati Monster 1000.

You can see his attention to detail and the aluminum finish on this Cafe Racer is perfect for the style of the bike.
