I’m a big fan of Scramblers that are a little different, and this Ducati Super Sport 750 turned scrambler is just the kind of thing I fancy. The Ducati SS is a great donor bike for builds as it’s cheap and fairly versatile when it comes to the extensive possibilities builders have when working with one as demonstrated by this “Scrambob” example. This Italian machine underwent a complete rebuild from the ground up that saw the entire bike broken down. The frame – which is more visible than ever – was powder coated and the engine with less than 10k miles on it was stripped, cleaned and rebuilt. Since the build only 100 miles have been added to the odo as the current owner doesn’t have an M endorsement which is why the bike has been resting for the last two years.
The 750cc fuel-injected twin powered scoot has an unusual silhouette made by its new custom leather seat (courtesy of Caferacerseats) and the 750 SS’s original tank which has been fitted with leather knee pads that match the seat and are reminiscent of the kind found on old British Scramblers. Furthering the Scrambler look is a headlight guard and a set of number plates. A custom one-off 1-into-two exhaust hugs either side of the rear wheel, while knobby tires and a Fatbobbers England handlebar leave little doubt as to this machine’s intended purpose.
This particular 750 SS has been restricted to 33hp but said restriction can be easily defeated/removed and the bike’s aftermarket Brembo brakes should have no problem managing the extra MPH’s. A clock from MMB Germany classes up the build a little bit and a small circular taillight mounted on the seat keeps the bike’s appearance somewhat classic, albeit for such an unusual build.
As novel as this “Scrambob” example appears to be, it’s actually based on a 1995 Ducati Super Sport 600 Scrambler build by Marco Artizzu and the builder has certainty captured the essence of what made Arrizzu’s ’95 SS 600 so special. According to the seller, the builder behind this project routinely builds replica Steve McQueen Mustangs, which was the source of this Scramblers paint (and leather color) scheme.
