Slammin' Ducati 749

Published: 03 July 2009

Ducati’s 749 sportster isn’t the obvious choice for US customisers wanted their ‘slammed’ low, long and lean look, but that’s exactly what’s happened here.

Created by Gooichi Motorsports of Pittsburg it’s been fitted with with a stretched swingarm, custom-built exhaust, 18-inch spoked wheels, custom rear shock and more.

‘I wanted to go for an old school look,” says the bike’s owner who wanted to remain anonymous.    

“So we sprayed it hot rod black with solid red flake scallops with red and white pin stripes. I also designed a nice air ride kit for it, along with some carbon pieces and custom side-mount exhaust. I even ended up making a one-off, 14in-over aluminium tubular swingarm to house a custom 300-wide fat spoked rim."

We’re sure it looks great cruising down the strip, but don’t fancy it through the twisties…
