KTM Cafe by Nigel Petrie [Photo Gallery]
With Australian Nigel Petrie, the owner and builder of the KTM Cafe constantly switching between dirt riding and supermoto, the idea of changing it altogether was a real challenge. The staring point and the desired result were way different from eachother, but Nigel took his time.
Already being skilled in sheet metal works and knowing a lot of things about how a bike should ride, it was more a matter of patience and vision, and even though the custom tank was a terribly hard endeavor, the outcome is stunning.
Different handlebars and a lowered rear were needed and after stripping the bike off, it was ready for registration. The KTM Cafe is already on the street, and modding was around $400 (around €300). For this price it sounds like an awesome bargain, give the fact that Nigel himself claims he now owns a completely different beast. Which can still be ridden hard, though. Via Pipeburn.
