HCAF Crafts A Wildly-Detailed Gulf-Liveried Ducati 750SS Cafe Racer Moto

With a trellis frame, L-Twin engine, high-end componentry, and an accessible used price of only a few grand, Ducati Motorcycle’s second-generation 750SS (and 900SS) has long been a go-to platform for custom cafe racer builds. And though we’ve seen countless turn-of-the-millennium SuperSport builds, few if any have caught our attention quite like this Gulf-liveried cafe project from HCAF.

Dubbed the “Spirit of Preluk,” the build started life as a 1999 750SS and takes its name from a race track in the Kvarner Gulf in the builder, Armano Filipovic’s native Croatia. The Spirit of Preluk now sports a modified full ST fairing paired with a composite tail section and a hooped subframe with an integrated LED strip taillight. Cloaked in a paint scheme inspired by Porsche 917 Le Man’s racer — complete with its race # 20 and various sponsor logos — the Ducati also boasts a MotoGP-style exhaust setup with a side-mounted can and a second muffler poking out from the tail cowl, custom Gulf-themed instrumentation set in a 3D-printed housing, a one-off intake inhaling through a high-flow pod filter, GP-style switchgear, bespoke aviation-style toggle switches set in the fairing, a custom-contoured seat with an embossed Gulf logo, an LED headlight helped along by projector auxiliary lights, aftermarket rear-sets, and an endurance-style fuel cap.
