A scrambler bike transformed into a modern cafe racer that pays homage to an iconic Ducati motorcycle.

Bangkok-based design studio and workshop Crafton Atelier has been making custom parts for Triumph and Royal Enfield bikes for years. In 2022, however, the team decided to complete their first custom build. Named Crafon 01, the project transformed a Ducati sixty2 scrambler bike into a modern cafe racer that takes inspiration from the iconic Ducati 750 Sport bike. Minimalist and elegant, the motorcycle gives a nod to the vintage icon with a fresh take on its beloved style. To create it, the workshop designed and built all of the main parts specially for this project.

The custom bodywork merges cues from the Ducati scrambler and the 750 Sport, but in a contemporary design. Apart from a new handmade aluminum gas tank with a flat gas cap, the team also built a fiberglass seat cowl body tipped with a black leather seat and completed with a custom aluminum rear frame with a built-in seat lock system. Crafton relocated the key ignition and also designed a bespoke cover for it. At the front, there’s a new headlight, while at the back there’s a custom lens and analog taillight. The stainless steel exhaust boasts a Crafton muffler and the footrest comes from Sato Racing. Other details include a black powder-coated finish on the electric tray, an ABS brake system, Avon Storm 3dxm front tires, and Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rear tires. It’s a gorgeous build and hopefully only the beginning for Crafton Atelier. Photographs © Crafton Atelier.
