When you start your journey to build a custom motorcycle, half the battle can be in simply picking the base you choose. Like a good fried rice it sets the foundation and with the availability of all the right ingredients, it can be almost impossible to go wrong. But choosing to start with an adventure bike immediately give the builder a challenge.That bike usually with top condition or ugly, rarely modified by others and almost always in an original looks. Totally undaunted Mr. Denny from Jakarta chose a 2005 Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, bring to our shop and we will start a custom-crafted all the right toppings for this tasty treat. What will it be like? Let’s see the story….
Starting with the frame, we removed an original sub frame and make way for flat and line with an aluminum handmade unibody, custom original version we designed and built, scaled with a single seater in mind. The outdated original tires have been replaced with Shinko E805 130/70-17 & 150/70-17 for front and rear. The bikes braking performance still using an original from Brembo. Here comes the bodywork, a unique handmade unibody made from 3.2 mm aluminum plate.
After the bodywork was done, Komet Studio made his move! We choose candy red from Sikkens and decorated with a silver stripe line. Completing the last project, Rizoma riser and handlebar was selected to provide ‘the enjoyment of riding’. The 7 inch DRL Aftermarket headlight and stock Indicator was attached at the front. Leovince SBK dual end muffler and custom 2 in 2 exhaust was selected to drag up the modern classic theme with a strong sound. With the final touch coming in the form of Rizoma grips and MB Tech seat to complete the build.
Anybody got a Multistrada they aren’t using? For some reason, we’ve got a sudden urge to make one freakishly unusable for ourselves.
