DUC DASTARDLY. A ’65 Ducati 250 Scrambler From MotoRelic

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Andrew in Classic, Scrambler. 44 comments

MotoRelic is a little shop run out of Hamilton, Virginia by the very talented Sean Skinner. And despite having over 20 years of experience as a mechanic under his belt he was nearly beaten by this – a cursed 1965 Ducati 250 Scrambler that he dubbed the ‘Dastardly Ducati’…

MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. A Fully Transformed Ducati Tracker From Benjie’s

Posted on November 16, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 15 comments

We can read your mind. You’re trying to guess which donor Ducati Benjie’s Cafe Racers used to build this, their latest custom bike home run. A Monster perhaps? What about a ST4S? Or maybe a Scrambler? They’re pretty good guesses, but you’d be wrong on all counts…

WE SHALL BE MONSTERS. Mellow Motorcycles’ ‘Frankenstein’ Ducati Sprint Racer

Posted on November 10, 2017 by Andrew in Racer. 12 comments

Mellow Motorcycles are anything but. They don’t do partial restorations or touch ups and they’re refreshingly forward about charging a premium for the work they do. Work which is consistently clean and clearly belies the name they’ve given themselves. And nowhere is their dedication and incredible craftsmanship more apparent than on their latest bike, a Ducati-Honda sprint racer named FRKNSTN.

GROUP THUG. Mike Thalmann’s Team-Built Ducati Monster Cafe Racer

Posted on November 6, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer. 16 comments

Pipeburn is full of stories concerning engineering genii who make us all look like drunken monkeys when it comes to customising a bike. Guilty as charged. But for the most part, it’s average Joes and Joannes who build bikes. The trick is knowing when to bring in the big guns. Clearly not one to do things by half measures, Switzerland’s Michael Thalmann pulled the pin on European custom’s equivalent of a nuclear weapon to help him out and the end result is a Ducati Monster cafe racer that’s blowing our minds.

THE WIZARD OF OZZ. A Ducati ST4S Cafe Fighter By Ozz Customs

Posted on November 3, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer, Streetfighter. 30 comments

Despite being one of the most enlightened countries in the world, the Netherlands doesn’t have a thriving motorcycle scene. I’ve no idea why this is – they could be all too busy getting ripped, getting drunk or falling off pushbikes to really catch the bug. But for whatever reason, Roosendaal-based Ozz Customs breaks the silence yet again with their latest build, a Ducati ST4S touring bike cut down into a mean cafe fighter.

STRATOSPHERIC. A Rally-Inspired Ducati Monster From Vida Bandida.

Posted on October 31, 2017 by Andrew in Other, Racer, Scrambler, Tracker. 14 comments

Yesterday we had an 80s endurance cafe racer and today it’s rally cars that are setting the scene. But not just any rally car; it’s arguably the rally car. The Lancia Stratos HF with its Ferrari V6. Argentina’s Vida Bandida are, like many of their country folk, huge rally fans. And to pay tribute to the Lancia and rally’s Group B golden age of the 70s and 80s, they’ve built an perfectly Italian tribute in the form of this dirt-eating Ducati Monster.

LIQUID MENTAL. A Polished Ducati Cafe Racer from Walt Siegl

Posted on October 24, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer. 40 comments

If there’s one American bike show that’s really been punching above its weight in the last year or two, it’s the Brooklyn Invitational. You know something’s up when two separate world-class builders recommend the show as the cream of the US crop to you in the same week. Actually, make that three. Why? Because clearly New Hampshire’s Walt Siegl saved his best bike for the show, too. And here it is; a Ducati Monster 1100S that’s got more shine than Terminator 2.

HOGS OF WAR. Anvil Motociclette’s ‘Warthog’ Ducati S4R Tracker

Posted on September 15, 2017 by Andrew in Tracker. 19 comments

No matter how strong your nationalistic tendencies it’s almost impossible to argue against the fact that Italy has produced the world’s greatest artists. Not just the likes of Michelangelo and Caravaggio but polymaths Da Vinci and Galileo who were experts in so many areas it’s impossible to count. What these men also possessed was an unmistakable madness and willingness to transgress society’s norms that are qualities our modern renaissance men of Anvil Motociclette not only share but are deeply proud of. So it should come as no surprise that San Marco and Phonz found their inspiration for this build in an immense and dusty abandoned factory that serves as a mausoleum for a century old motodrome. It’s rolling art with superbike levels of performance, a Ducati Monster S4R that now goes by the name WARTHOG Mille.

BADA-BING BADA-ZOOM. Wrench Kings’ ‘Mobster’ Ducati Monster Cafe Racer

Posted on September 14, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer. 16 comments

Giving you new custom bike a Mafia-related name requires a certain amount of bravado. After all, portraying something that’s got your life in its hands as a violent, vindictive and possibly unhinged criminal doesn’t bode so well for your future personal safety. Open the garage door one sunny Sunday to find it in a bad mood and you could well end up riding with the fishes. Luckily for us, the Netherlands‘ Wrench Kings are still healthy enough to tell us about this, their brand new Ducati Monster cafe they’ve named ‘Mobster’.

RED HOT. Kaspeed Moto’s Beautiful Ducati 750SS Cafe Racer

Posted on August 28, 2017 by Andrew in Café Racer. 19 comments

Ducati’s first and arguably best tilt at the modern cafe racer was their achingly beautiful Sport 1000. We still regret not grabbing a new one before they ceased production in 2008, and we bet we’re not the only ones. But there’s always the custom route to modern cafe Ducati ownership and Germany’s Kaspeed have done just that. Here’s their 2001 750SS SuperSport.
