The Ducati 749s Custom Build By deBolex

View all 11 Photos

Stylish, bold, and gorgeous, this Ducati 749s customization project celebrates the bike’s Italian origin while adding creative design touches. The bike was completed by London-based deBolex Engineering, a custom motorcycle workshop and lifestyle brand founded by Calum Pryce-Tidd in 2012. Together with Des Francis, Calum builds custom bikes that provide a fresh take on classic motorcycle builds, and this Ducati 749s is a great example.

Approached by the client with a simple brief that gave the team full creative control, deBolex sourced the bike from a Lincolnshire dealer and started the customization process. As the previous owner had gone to great lengths to maintain it in pristine condition, Calum and Des could concentrate on the their creative work to transform the bike into something special. The new belly pan maintains the oil cooler in the middle; the electrics are on the left side and the exhaust header for the front cylinder on the right. A wider fuel tank was designed to complement the structure of the motorcycle. The aluminum seat features a dark Alcantara covering with detailed stitching and one cleverly placed fastener. At the front, a new nose fairing covers the larger radiator header tank and the Motogadget tacho, replacing the headlight and transforming the Ducati 749s into a daytime motorcycle. Blue and light gray colors add contrast and complement the design, bringing a stylish finishing touch to this unique project. Images courtesy of deBolex.
