Ducati 750SS ‘Desmo Flat’ By Home Made Motorcycles

Bare bones basic, all out race machines are what make flat track racing the purest form of motorcycle competition in the modern era. Luca Caravà of Italian custom bike house Home Made Motorcycles shows his passion for the classic discipline with the dreamy Ducati 750SS build dubbed ‘Desmo Flat.’

The fabrication project, which was commissioned by component distributor Parts Europe for the 2017 EICMA show, starts with the powerplant of a wrecked 750SS, which is about the only factory part left on the bike. A new lattice main-frame wraps the rehabilitated motor and a customized tubular subframe accepts the dual Bitubo rear shocks, providing a solid backbone for the racer. The fork was swapped with a Showa unit and 19-inch Excel wheels were laced up to fatty Dunlop DT3 tires, giving the track ready look not often seen on a Ducati. Capping off the build is a handmade tail cowling and gas tank, complete with eye catching cut out to accept the K&N air cleaner.
