The Italian workshop Satorie Meccaniche customized a Buell x1 Lightning to create BELVA, a muscled cafe racer with American, British, and Italian influences. The builders added a tailor-made tail, a fiberglass Norton endurance tank, and a large carburetor to the original electronic injection. New and classic elements come together in the design, unified by the dark color palette and the attention given to shape.
