Rough Crafts Ducati Scrambler is Holistically Honed
The Ducati Scrambler, even in stock form, is quite the looker. But Winston Yeh and the team at Rough Crafts knew they could transform it into something even more striking and purposeful, and we have to admit, it certainly is that.
Although the frame itself is basically unaltered, lots of the parts that attach to it have been tweaked or swapped out entirely. A Ducati 1199 Panigale surrendered its Marzocchi forks, while the rear features another key component from another Duc, specifically the swingarm from a Monster 1100; incidentally, the latter is the new mounting location for the clutch and brake master cylinders, presumably to avoid drawing attention from the Beringer levers and Motogadget grips, bar-end turn signals and mirrors. Rough Crafts also recovered the saddle in diamond-quilted leather and installed a pair of 17” BST carbon fiber wheels wearing Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tires. If nothing else, this motorcycle is proof that you don’t have to go crazy with the cutting torch and welder to create something special (though starting with a stock Scrambler certainly helps).
