ONE DOWN, CLAW UP. AdHoc’s Sharp Cagiva Raptor Roadster
Some clients can rain cash down upon a builder to make their dreams come to life. But sometimes owners are mere mortals like us and have to tread more warily when it comes to a budget. And that’s what Spain’s Adhoc have dealt with here, with their 2005 Cagiva Raptor given a careful haircut and coming out looking a million bucks.
“The motorcycle was sent to us by the client,” Adhoc’s David Gonzalez recalls, “he was delighted with the response of the engine and performance, but he was tired of the aesthetic and wanted to give it a new air”. That makes sense to me — the Cagiva is hurtled along by a whopping 996cc engine taken from the Suzuki TL1000.
