Readers Rides: La Haduc Cafe Racer

What do you get when you cross a Laverda with a Harley and a Ducati? You get a Ducati 860 GT framed, Harley XL 1200R powered custom Cafe Racer rolling on a set of Laverda 750 SF wheels named “La Haduc”. 

– – No motorcycles were harmed in the making of this Cafe Racer – – 

Piet (Pete) from the Netherlands built up the bike over 18 months for a total of less that 5000 euros.
