Cafe 31

Café 31 was born in the history of the Italian brand, and then mated with the most state of the art components available to produce a machine as capable on the track as on the street. It’s a tribute to Cook Neilson, Phil Schilling, Rino Carrachi and Giorgio Nepoti, four men all Ducati racing legend’s and personal friends. DesmoPro builds absolutely accurate restorations of Italian machines, destined for museums, as well as specialized builds like Café 31 (which was built for Velocity Channels tevlevision show Cafe Racer) and “Deja Blue” which can be seen in the entrance of the Barber museum in Leeds, AL.
