My first true obsession with custom motorcycles started when I first saw what are known as streetfighters. The builder had a full custom 90 GSXR 1100 and a radical Ducati streetfighter. What drew me in was the visibly appealing frames and motors. Being able to see the actual machine, all stripped down and naked had a certain beauty to it. So when I saw the Fuoriserie Ducati 999s Cafe Racer, I was immediately drawn to it. Not only does it have classic cafe racer styling, it has a certain streetfighter design, making it a bit more extreme.
Marco, at Fuoriserie, started with a 2005 Ducati 999s. Wanting to show off the unique and beauty design of the trellis frame, he ditched the bodywork. A custom sub-frame was constructed hold the custom tail section and Motogp styled undertail exhaust. The Tank and tail section are finished in a carbon fiber construction that are flawless.
As for the performance of the bike, the Ducati 999s already puts out 150hp. The clutch was upgraded to a dry clutch setup. The undertail exhaust system was designed and hand built by Racing Venier Projects. The raw design and welds on this system are amazing. Up front, a Motogadget Classic Tach unit and M-Swtiches were used. The headlight which features a halo ring it mounted using LSL billet aluminum fork brackets. To help stop the power of this machine, the brakes were upgraded with a Brembo 19RCS Master Cylinder. The clutch side features the matching Brembo 16RCS CLutch Master cylinder.
This bike is a true testament to the beauty of the Ducati and what a master builder such as Fuoriserie can do. As a result, this is a classic cafe racer with a slight hint of streetfighter styling in my opinion. Go check out Fuoriserie Builds
