Ducati has enjoyed a massive success with the Scrambler Ducati model range, as well as with the first edition of the Ducati Scrambler Custom Rumble, so this contest has reopened with a host of attractive motorcycle builds among the entries. For the 2nd edition of Custom Rumble, a Japanese master-artisan named Masaharu-san has created a gorgeous gold Aellambler Ducati Scrambler motorcycle. We’ll see if that will be the coolest bike you’ll ever own.
The real center of focus surrounding Aellambler is the sinuous bodywork. Designed with 3D modeling techniques, the form’s delicate curves complements its natural shimmer. Gold leaf (otherwise known as brass foil) has been applied by hand, and then reapplied painstakingly to create this attractive finish.
As for the engine, it has been treated to an overhaul that includes ditching the electronic fuel injection.
The L-twin engine has been treated to a pair of 39 mm FCR carburetors, plus a set of machined intakes and velocity stacks. Masaharu-san documents the whole build process on his website, and it’s certainly worth checking out – there’s a video of the painstaking foil work.
There are many awesome interpretations of the Ducati but you can vote specifically for the Aellambler Ducati Scrambler motorcycle in the Custom Rumble’s “Best Independent Customizer” category.
