Yesterday Hylke Groen from Holland wrote me a letter with this completely rebuilt Ducati 1098. Most of components the bike build came from the Madrid based Radical Ducati. As Hylke told me, the bike is for track use, but it is street legal so he can travel to the circuits in Europe.

Christian Klein is a skilled lathe operator and a craftsman engineer. He’s also a Ducati fan, and rides a red 900 GTS. In the cold German evenings, he drifts towards his workshop, inhabiting what he calls his ‘parallel world’. And it was in here, a few years ago, that Klein decided to build a light and quick cafe racer. So he created a custom frame, using high-strength, low-alloy steel. That bike is now finished, and it’s a work of art. The rear is unusually narrow, with the seat being merely two sections of foam rubber inset into milled aluminum plate. The exhaust winds through the frame under the seat unit, and was created using a home-made tube bending machine. The motor is from a Ducati 350 Scrambler, which Klein rebuilt and treated to a port and polish job. (It’s a very reputable motor, as far as singles go: in 1967, it was even selected to power the Swiss military’s Condor A350 motorcycle.) Attention to detail is everywhere, from the foot controls to the single rear (CB600-based) shock arrangement, and even the hand-made screws and locknuts. The forks, in case you’re wondering, are from a Yamaha RD. And the result is simply wunderbar.

Modified seat and rear frame, custom tank, fiberglass rear end, Tarozzi clipons, small front fender. New headlight and turn signals, WM Megatron muffler. It’s a light bike – weighing only 160kg or 350lbs – and with 70hp on tap it’ll be pretty quick. Great job.
