A Custom Ducati Scrambler to relive the 70s
The Ducati Scrambler is one of those machines that can be moulded very easily into any kind of desired motorcycle. Over the past couple of years since the Ducati brought back the Scrambler marquee to their lineup, there have been countless variations that individual workshops have created. Joining some very spectacular Ducati Scrambler builds for 2016, Barcelona-based Fuel Motorcycles have now come up with their own idea of how a custom Ducati Scrambler should look like, and they call theirs the FUEL STRADA 800.
The Fuel Strada 800 that has been commissioned by Ducati Spain gets its design inspiration from the iconic Ducati 900SS from the 70s. There are quite a few cues that make this custom Ducati Scrambler reminiscent of the old motorcycle, and each of those details have been carried out perfectly. From the old-school front fairing that gets a custom made bubble windscreen to the spoke wheels similar to the ones on the Ducati 900SS, the Strada 800 custom Ducati Scrambler tries to represent the classic motorcycle with perfection. Even the seat is an exact replica of the 900SS while the golden black paint scheme brings out the spirit of the old machine to life.
More details come with the inclusion of lower cafe-racer style Rizoma handlebars and a single pod speedometer at the centre. The height of the front has been dropped down by shortening the forks, and Ducati Monster footrests are installed to complete the new aggressive riding position.
This custom Ducati Scrambler that was unveiled at the World Ducati Week 2016 has been made with the goal of having a modern bike with classic 70s styling. And in that department, Fuel Motorcycles have done a brilliant job at paying homage to one of the most legendary Italian machines.
