Revival Spent Over 1,000 Hours Building the Fully-Bespoke Ducati ‘Fuse’

In early 2015, Revival Cycles unveiled its stunning J63 project, a Ducati 900SS SP that spent a year on display at the Custom Revolution Exhibit at the Petersen Museum. Fast forward to today, and the renowned Texas-based custom moto outfit has now taken the experience it has earned over the last seven years to deliver an even more impressive follow-up project to the J63, this time dubbed the “Fuse.”

Designed and built by Revival in collaboration with the build’s client Ed Boyd — a former VP of design for Dell, Global Catagory Creative Director for Nike, and Technology Designer for Sony — the project started out as a mid-aughts Ducati Monster, though aside from the engine, very little of the stock bike remains following the more than 1,000 hours of work that’s been poured into the build. Crafted around a custom stainless steel trellis frame that’s been paired with a custom-machined swing-arm, the Ducati donor has been draped in an incredibly complex monocoque tank and tailpiece that’s complemented via a matching bikini fairing. Wrapped in custom one-off Dunlop prototype racing slicks are now a set of 18″ wheels that were designed and built to spec to show off the details of the build’s custom rear hub.

The 1,100cc engine at the heart of the build has also been completely rebuilt and now boasts a race-tuned ECU and slipper clutch, custom-machined belt covers, one-off velocity stacks, and a magnificent hand-welded two-into-one exhaust system. Adorned in an elaborate seven-layer paint job, the bike has also been treated to Supernova indicators neatly integrated into the tank, a bespoke leather saddle and matching hand grips courtesy of Revival Limited, one-off billet foot-controls, bespoke machined and polished calipers built in collaboration with Hayes, an RFID keyless and wireless ignition, and an innovative handlebar setup that sees the clip-ons integrated into the top triple with included levers and internally-routed cabling.

As one of the most stunning custom builds we’ve seen in recent years, Revival Cycles’ Fuse project makes us extremely excited to see the caliber of work the Austin outfit will likely be producing in another seven years from now.
