1200SS Custom Ducati Cafe Racer with BST Carbon Fiber Wheels

Scales Studio Ducati 1200SS

Scales Studio’s 1200SS Ultimate Custom Ducati Cafe Racer Build

When it comes to custom motorcycles there’s an inherent charm in the exquisite craftsmanship of vintage Ducatis that seamlessly complements the café racer style. Especially when adorned with a sleek bikini fairing like the one showcased here, it’s no surprise that I’ve found my latest phone wallpaper.

This bespoke Ducati 1200SS hails from Scales Studio, based in Miami, Florida. Headed by Trever Scales, Scales Studio has a rich history of customizing motorcycles, with several of their creations garnering widespread acclaim. Yet, this custom Ducati 1200SS holds a special place in their portfolio.

Trever Scales reveals that the bike demanded approximately 1,400 labor hours. Crafted for a discerning customer with a penchant for rare Ducatis, this machine began its journey as a pristine 2005 Ducati 1000SS. Given that only 80 of these bikes were imported into the U.S., and roughly half were transformed into race-ready machines, obtaining a stock 1000SS is a feat in itself.

The bike also runs on BST Carbon Fiber Wheels creating the bare minimum of unsprung weight.

About Trevor Scales

I am the eternal flow that exist within, the water which cuts through the stone. In this world, but not of it.

I have been living the life of art for 40 years. My creativity encompasses photography, abstract painting, sculpting and film making.

My art comes from a timeless space. I open myself to a meditative state, where I connect to all that is. By letting the thinking, analytical mind go blank, I simply let the universe flow through me and create what’s given. I have no preconceived notion of what’s going to appear in-front of me.

Many journeys to the void have helped cultivate inner stillness and silence. Trips to the cathedrals of the expanse, merging with the collective consciousness and experiencing all the data of the past, future and present flow through. My art is the sum of the earths web of interconnectivity which strings together all of man’s thoughts and Gaia’s infinite intelligence.

The art comes from outside of me. It’s a gift from the Divine.
