Awesome Earle Motors Ducati Monster Streettracker Available in Kit Form

Earle Motors Monster Streettracker
Alex Earle and his team at Earle Motors in Venice, CA designed and built this fantastic Ducati Monster-based streettracker. Earle announced last year that his company plans to offer the one-piece fiberglass body, fuel tank, wheels, and headlight assembly to builders in kit form.

We believe that it is available now. Interested riders are directed to contact them at inquiries@earlemotors.com.

Earle says that the bodywork and fuel tank can be easily adapted for Harley Sportsters and Triumphs. Anyone interested in one of those applications is also encouraged to email them for further information.

Deus Ex Machina Yamaha 400 Thumper Scrambler Kit

Deus Ex Machina Yamaha 400 Kit
The crew at Deus has put together a kit for customizing the Yamaha SR400. It's got that vintage XT500 scrambler vibe; think of it as kind of a tribute to that popular classic. They call it a "custom meant to be customized." Put your own spin on it, make it more streettracker than scrambler, for example.

More on the SR400 here.

Here's another builder's take on the XT500 at the Pipeburn blog, this one an actual customized version of the original, from Mark Apland of Thumper Stuff in Monroe, WA.
