It starts out as a Mark3 and ends as a Scrambler but it's a cool video set in a great old shop, even if it's movie magic...

Custom Ducati Full Sport By Bryan Fuller

Custom Ducati Full Sport By Bryan Fuller | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The 1970’s Ducati Super Sport defined a new era and a new line of thinking for Ducati. A philosophy that would lead to the creation of the modern Superbike. Only around 430 to 450 have been produced and custom builder Bryan Fuller is one of many who, a few years back, fell in love with the 1974 green frame after admiring one at The Barber Motorsports Museum. He told me: “The torque and rumble is similar to a Harley but with smoothness and the ability to spin up the RRR’s! They are comfortable enough to ride all day, yet sporting enough to handle the hills or track. Hell, I even used mine to run errands! The 1971- 1974 Ducatis are for me some of the finest motorcycles ever made. They have it all: style, grace and power…” - See more at:

67 350 widecase scrambler motor (non desmo) and frame, stock motor, frame delugged and rear loop pulled in. Yamaha R5b forks up front and 13” shrouded shocks from a BSA out back. Akront rims (21” and 18”) laced to Ducati hub in rear and Yamaha 175 hub up front. Mystery tires that I sanded all the lettering off of. Battery is tiny, coil is from a Yamaha. The giant handlebars are from the ‘60s. Seat is a chopper pillion pad and the gas tank is a narrowed Yamaha tank with Italian petcocks. Megaphone is short, thick and loud (just how I like my women).

Builder Interview: AreteAmericana 999 Italia | Vicki's View Blog on Ducati.net

Builder Interview: AreteAmericana 999 Italia | Vicki's View Blog on Ducati.net | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Every big Ducati event weekend there’s always a standout bike people leave the track talking about and Laguna Seca was no exception.  What was interesting about the bike that stood out a few weeks ago on Laguna Seca Ducati Island was that under normal circumstances, in a literal sea of Ducati’s, a 999 Superbike would be just another nice bike among hundreds of other nice bikes.  But this 999 stopped people in their tracks.  Subtle and elegant, the AreteAmericana 999 Italia is a lovely piece of work.  It’s also clearly a professional build. One look at the 848 swingarm and the beautiful custom seat treatment and it had my attention (as well as a good bit of respect)  so I decided to follow up with Bryan Peterson, who built it, to learn a bit more about this interesting bike, and how it came to be....

What this donor bike has is an old-school style Ducati frame – giving the flat upper line which, unlike most Ducatis, allows a proper cafe seat and tank, plus it has a rear loop already in place. Combine all this with a modern, reliable Ducati Dual Spark Motor (as per the Monster and Hypermotard) and up-to-date running gear with upside down forks and relatively light spoked wheels, with a wide rear rim that can accommodate a 180 tyre. In other words, old school ideas with new (ish) school thinking.

Return of the Cafe Racers: SD04 Ducati 900SS custom

Return of the Cafe Racers: SD04 Ducati 900SS custom | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

For some time now I have considered the use of carbon fibre on many custom motorcycles as being rather clichéd. Ducati were one of the manufacturers who jumped on the carbon fibre band wagon a few years back by adding a multitude of bolt on carbon parts to their accessories range. Currently they have around 140 carbon accessories available on their site most of which have a dress up purpose rather than functional. Luckily UK workshop Made in Metal had grander plans than simply looking good when they started their latest carbon covered Ducati 900SS custom.

Flying Hermans’ Ducati Cafe Racer | the Bike Shed | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

It’s hard to believe that this pristine looking bike was totalled after a crash last year, as not only has it been totally rebuilt, it’s become one of the nicest Ducati Sport Classic 1000s we’ve come across – and we’ve seen a few.

The owner, Andy, is part of a group of crazy Belgians who ride in a cafe racer club called the Flying Hermans, which they started up a couple of years so. Last summer he crashed his pride and joy on a ride, and although it was a insurance write-off Andy simply couldn’t let the bike go so he decided to rebuild it, with “one or two few improvements”…
