1971 Ducati Scrambler ‘Belstaff’ By Tarform

There are plenty of custom bike makers that seem to believe that more equals better. But we posit that, in most cases when vintage bikes are concerned, the opposite is true. If you don’t believe us, then just have a look at this 1971 Ducati Scrambler build from Tarform.

The donor bike, a classic 250 that was purchased on eBay, was stripped down and cleaned up. And when we say stripped, we mean of just about everything – including whatever paint once graced its now raw polished metal. It was also refitted with longer rear shocks, clip-on handlebars, and a hand-shaped fairing on the rear end. But, before you get too excited, you should know that this gorgeous bike will likely never grace the road, as it was built as a display piece for British motorcycle gear brand Belstaff’s Milano, Italy store location.
