A view of the 2007 KTM 990 Super Duke christened the "Archduke"

When the good people at Tony Prust’s Analog Motorcycles decided to take on this monochromatic build, we were excited.

A view of the anti-christ - a 1972 Honda Double 750 Salt Flat Racer for the mecum auctions January 27

Honda is Seeing Double I don’t know what it is about Honda engines (for reference, please scoot over and take a gander at the CBR1000F boasting a turbo-ed K24 minivan engine we covered last week), but we have another chonky custom build for the bike banks – and apparently one engine wasn’t enough, because this …
