A Ducati engine in a cruiser chassis? Ducati were not the first people to try this combination when they launched their Diavel behemoth in 2011, back in the 80’s Cagiva had attempted to conquer the American market with their Ducati badged and Pantah engined Indiana, a motorcycle they hoped would combine the best of two worlds.

I think this quote from the builder is going to make some people smile: "Ducati Indiana for some is not a Ducati, is a Cagiva, but for others it is the best Ducati ever made."
We usually draw upon inspiration from specific styles, but with the Typhoon we have built what we felt we needed to build based around the specific donor, in this case a Ducati 900ss.

With the new-wave custom scene continually evolving and diversifying, it’s becoming progressively more difficult to classify custom motorcycles. Even the mere mention of the term “café racer” is enough to send purists into a frenzy these days. It gets even more complicated when the donors are ’90s-model Ducatis—an emerging trend that we’re loving.

I’m always curious to see what moto journalists ride when they’re not reporting on other people’s bikes. This hot-rodded Ducati Monster 750 belongs to Alicia Mariah Elfving—better known as the Motolady, and one of the biggest personalities in the online moto world.

This came out nice. Love the paint...
It’s not often we hold the front page, throw our schedule out the window and then go chasing a builder for “permission to post” but when this Ducati 750 Sport by JvB-Moto appeared on the inter-web a few of us in the Bike Shed had a small underpants accident. Ok, as occasional Ducati riders we might be biased, but whatever your biking persuasion we think this bike has something for everyone. And with the 750 sport as a base, weighing-in at just 155 kg, you know it’s an amazing bike to ride just by looking at it.

Congratulations to my friend Arrick Maurice for building something both beautiful AND absolutely rideable. The highest calling for a bike builder.
For a motorcycle that only sold in small numbers and was produced for just five years, the Ducati SportClassic generates a remarkable amount of press. It’s virtually impossible to find a good condition example on the secondhand market, and if you do find one, you’ll have to pay handsomely for
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:
Nice job Bryan, it came out great!
