When Ducati first unveiled its revived Scrambler range in 2015, the Italian firm tapped a number of eminent customs shops to craft one-off builds based on the then-new 803cc L-Twin platform — one of which was Hugo Eccles of San Francisco’s Untitled Motorcycles who proceeded to churn out one of the most prolific custom bikes of the last decade with what was dubbed the “UMC-038 Hyper Scrambler,” a minimalistic midsized Ducati weighing less than a 300cc Vespa.
With its ultra-clean silhouette and uniquely tapered tank and headlight arrangement, the Hyper Scrambler was an instant hit with the riding community, gracing a slew of noteworthy publications and famously being featured on Jay Leno’s Garage. Other noteworthy details on the Hyper Scram included hand lever-integrated front indicators, a single-sided Monster SR2 swingarm mated to an Ohlins monoshock, a transparent clutch cover and exposed timing belts, and a UMC-modified underslung QD Ex-Box exhaust paired with a custom belly-pan to round out the bottom of the bike. More recently, the British-born industrial designer-turned-bike-builder has announced that he will now be offering the UMC-038 on a custom built-to-order basis that allows customers to select a myriad of parts, accessories, and options, as well as one of several iconic race liveries such a Paul Smart or Marlboro paint scheme (though customers can also select their own bespoke liveries, too).
