Hookie Co Ducati Desert Sled ‘Scorpion’

Scorpions love the desert We're big fans of German tuners, Hookie Co and have been watching them closely over the past few years.  Everything they put out is simple and super clean. One thing we particularly dig about them is that they are making kits for other people to be able to emulate their look, without needing an angle grinder and a welder. It's a little bit out of the British Custom's…

Ducati Monster 1200S…Superbike?

A Ducati medley Ducati Monsters are a great choice for customizers and have gone under the knife more than a Beverly Hills housewife. Being one of the original naked bikes, very few choose to "dress them" with fairings. And while few have dared over the years, Raul Fattori from Calenzano, Italy was up for the challenge. Fattori has been in love with the lines of the 90s motorcycles for…

Championship Cycles Ducati 900 SS SuperStrada

A lightweight Italian supermodel I met Mike Vienne in person a few years ago at a track day and he had shown up with some pretty killer builds. Over conversations not only discovered that he builds awesome "track ready: street legal" bikes but that I had actually featured one of his previous builds; a Triumph T120R on The Bullitt back in 2014. Small world! Needless to say Mike stayed in…

Ducati Monster 821 Pantah by XTR

A throwback take on a modern Monster Pepo Rosell is a name you might not all recognize immediately, but if you're into custom motorcycles, you know his work. For 13 years, Pepo worked under the name of Radical Ducati. In 2014 he closed the doors to Radical Ducati and we were gutted. After a little soul searching Rosell determined that bikes were his life and started anew as XTR Pepo. Our…

‘The Indigo Flyer’ Ducati Monster 1200 S By Rough Crafts

A Monster / SportClassic Medley Like many of us, Rough Craft's Winston Yeh admits to having an affinity for the Ducati Monster since before he could legally ride a motorcycle. There is undoubtedly beauty in the simplicity of the trellis frame and the gas tank. Stripped down. No frills. All smiles. Having never owned one himself, when Yeh got the freedom to choose the base model for his recent…

Our Ducati GT1000 is for sale

The Bullitt GT looks for a new home It's not always easy to let go, but sometimes it's gotta be done. Our quest to build a SportClassic repli-racer might have been overly ambitious and now with other projects on the front burners, we've decided to let someone else take it on. The Ducati GT1000 is such a fun, easy to ride bike, and works in just about any condition. It's comfortable as hell but…

Fuller Moto, being the master fabricators they are, was actually commissioned by Lloyd Brothers Motorsports to build a frame for their flat…

For sale :: the Bullitt 821 Ducati Monster 821

Our take on the Ducati Monster 821 We recently wrapped up our Ducati Monster 821 build, dubbed the "Bullitt 821". Building something you love and then letting it go isn't as easy as you'd think. After spending countless nights in the garage; planning, mocking up, tearing down, coating, and milling over details...the bike somehow becomes a part of you. Memorizing the lines, tweaking, obsessing.…

Simple and clean :: Ducati 900SS cafe racer

Sometimes simplicity is key There’s just something about a Ducati 900SS, isn’t there? Already a pretty attractive bike in its stock form, the 900SS definitely lends itself to be modified. Some of the most notable 900SS builds might be Walt Siegl’s Leggero series café racers. Another recent favorite of ours was Deep Creek Cycles ‘Distino’ build. When Bullitt-reader, J. B. Mcclure III, submitted…

For Sale :: Ducati 860 Cafe Racer by Bryan Heidt

We all dream of building our very own proper custom yet many of us don't possess the skills, resources and budget to see a true custom to life. It really takes a combination of all the above, along with hours upon hours of blood, sweat and more blood to pull of many of the finished products we see more and more frequently these days. If you can't do it yourself, you can always commission one from…
