DUCATI SS750
ITALIAN SNIPER
| Engine first start: take a look
 
Ducati SS750
THE ITALIAN SNIPER

Modern looking bikes like this aren´t what we usually deal with, so starting this project wasn't easy. However, besides enjoying a challenge, the idea of stripping this down into a yet smaller and aggressive bike, giving it a personality (the main goal for all Maria's builds) through a simple look of a classic street racer made us go for it.

The rear frame was modified and shortened. Despite the single seat, it´s possible to transport a second passenger when dismounting the rear fiber glass monocoque.

The engine came from a SS900. This engine gave this project more power and soul, while maintaining the smaller looks. It was all painted and restored like new. The transmission thong protections were taken off and the clutch cover was cut in half, allowing you to take a peek at the inside.

The wiring was completely built from scratch and hidden from sight in a box under the tank. The tank was made out of the original one. It was shortened and the overall lines were all changed and simplified to match the frame design. The suspension were all refurbished and painted.

All the engine covers, foot pegs and suspension trees were polished searching for it´s oldschool soul.

Firetrap exhausts for the agressive-shortened look, all terrain tires from Avon, and Brooks leather tape for the grips finished it off.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Italian Sniper is making some buzz. Read the reviews bellow to know of what they say about it.
Thank you all. We appreciate your support and disclosure on Maria Morotcycles builds.

   
Portugal, crippled by the GFC, is not a good place to conduct business at the moment. But nobody told the Lisbon-based custom workshop Maria Motorcycles, which is turning out some very sharp bikes indeed. Like this latest build, a 1999 Ducati 750SS called “Italian Sniper”.

  From their first creation to the latest custom Ducati 750SS aka Italian Sniper, Maria Motorcycles have managed to keep raising the bar. This Lisbon, Portugal based custom shop has just the right ingredients to cook up a custom craft like this Ducati 750SS.

  Maria Motorcycles in Lisbon seem to be keeping a low profile while building a stand-out cafe racer from one of our favorite platforms, the Ducati Supersport.
