In the realm of darkness, the Bologna Beast undergoes a captivating metamorphosis into a café racer vision, courtesy of Winston Yeh, the mastermind behind Rough Crafts.

Winston Yeh, the creative force behind Rough Crafts, adds another remarkable chapter to his portfolio, this time taking the reins of an Italian steed. Yeh's canvas is a Ducati Monster 821, christened the "Bologna Dogfight." This project embodies the essence of a Café Racer, defined by its clean, minimalist bodywork, meticulous attention to detail, and an abundance of sleek black accents.

Winston Yeh's craftsmanship at Rough Crafts has left an indelible mark on various projects, including the Bologna-born models like the XDiavel "Flatout Titan," the Honda CB1100 "Oriental Uppercut," the BMW R 18 "Berlin Barnstormer," among others.

The Ducati Monster 821, introduced in the mid-2014, was a manifestation of Italian sport-naked prowess, boasting an 821cc Testastretta L-Twin engine producing a robust 109 hp and 63.4 foot-pounds of torque. Staying true to Ducati's iconic "Il Mostro" lineage, it featured a trellis frame and an upright, sporty riding posture reminiscent of the 90s era.

With its menacing moniker and inherent character, the base bike is elevated to a new level of allure when adorned with a black coat and custom 3D-printed components. Rough Crafts pursued a retro-inspired design for the Monster, opting for 3D-printed materials to construct the tank, fairings, and tail. Furthermore, they created a new frame for the 821, a replica of a previous project, carefully tailored around the venerable L-Twin powerplant.


Every aspect of the bike exudes an aura of monochromatic sophistication, even down to the shock spring, which has shed its signature yellow hue in favor of a stealthy black finish. Yeh also integrated two LED headlights into the front fairing from Koso. Additionally, custom CNC-machined parts from Aritek Ltd. grace the motorcycle, with the top of the triple tree showcasing their precision work, and the lower portion being a CNC Racing masterpiece. Damping duties are expertly managed by an Andreani cartridge kit nestled inside the inverted fork, while the stock Monster's switchgear finds a new home on Motogadget handles, adorned with Beringer fittings and safeguarded by CNC Racing lever protectors.

Rough Crafts enlisted the expertise of Simon Fiber Craft for the creation of carbon fiber adornments and Rover Works Custom Paint for the resplendent recoloring. Not to be overlooked are the wheels, meticulously crafted from BST carbon rims. These wheels find their grip with Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Corsa tires, and Berringer and Moto Master braking components take the reins, replacing the stock Brembo setup.


Completing this remarkable build is a pair of slender twin tubes from SC Project. These exhausts, although more streamlined than stock, maintain the two-into-two configuration and are finished to perfection, adding the final touch to this Café Racer masterpiece.
