DAISY DUKE / 008


2013 KTM Duke 690

The goal of this bike like many of our builds was to eliminate as much of the useless bulk (and plastic) as possible. Any functioning plastic needed to be replaced with metal. The entire build was fabricated to bolt on to factory mounts, allowing the owner to utilize stock options or aftermarket parts without interference (Removing the stock air intake system was the bulk of the fat). 

We always try to incorporate some sort of nod to the past on our builds – so we found the original KTM logo from 1953 that was only used for 1 year. It was the perfect accent to finish off the build.
