Ducati 749 Cafe Racer custom
Another gem from the Verona Motor Bike Expo is the stunning “Martinez”, aÂ Ducati 749 “Cafe Racer with Attitude” from South Garage Motorcycles in Southern Italy. This is a real old school styling meets modern technology custom that looks as aggressive as it performs.
Based around the somewhatÂ controversialÂ Ducati 749 (those headlights certainly raised some eyebrows) the Martinez is a complete revision of the Ducatis original superbike design. Gone are the fairings, twin headlights andÂ under-tailÂ exhausts to create a naked, Cafe Racer style custom, stripped bare and finished with a splash of retro cool.
South Garage Motorcycles are quickly becoming recognised for their custom work with custom Ducati based Cafe Racers; their custom ’71 Ducati RT 450 “Old Speed” (see below) took out best Cafe Racer custom at the Glemseck 2011: cafe racer sprints. To see more of their amazing work check out the South Garage Motorcycles Blog.
