Ducati 750 SS Kraken by Iron Pirate Garage

Jun 6, 2016

Category: Rides

We featured Iron Pirate Garage a few weeks ago for their Buell XB9 Cafe Racer and were immediately turned on by their unique design and highly technical build-outs that resemble bikes more suited for a post-apocalyptic landscape than the hills of their Italian homestead. Now, here we go again with The Kraken, a new beast in their coveted lineup.

Built from a Ducati 750 SS, the Kraken brings new meaning to blackout themes. Iron Pirate puts their welding prowess on display in the detailed trellis of the rear subframe that brings the upright cylinder of the Ducati motor to the forefront, creating a flat ‘bone line.’ A yellow divide line also wraps around the bike adding a visual break to the sleek design. The tank moves beyond tradition and features a horizontal strap at its tip above the phrase, “The rougher the seas, the smoother we sail.” Not a bad mantra for an iron pirate. The exhaust is also finished with two horizontal pipes that flank the frame’s underside. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing more builds from these guys soon as we feel they’re just getting started.
