How do you improve on perfection? Most custom motorcycles address the shortcomings of a stock bike—be they aesthetic, propulsive or dynamic. But the Ducati 1098 scores pretty highly in all those departments.
This custom ‘café fighter’ is owned by Alonzo Bodden, who used the original bike as a trackday machine until a highside accident severely damaged it. Most 1098 owners would have had their bike repaired back to standard spec, but Bodden decided to give his to Nick Anglada of Florida-based Anglada Originals.
This is the result: a powerful, heavily upgraded custom Ducati packed with ultra high performance components and a unique style. Anglada went to town on this 1098, fitting an exhaust system and carbon fiber monocoque subframe from Double Dog Moto, a clear-coated Ducati Performance aluminum fuel tank, and a Yamaha MT-03-style headlight from German tuners LSL.
Other top-shelf parts include Race Tech re-valved Showa forks and a Race Tech rear shock. The wheels are from Carozzerria and most of the brake system has been swapped out for Beringer components.
The rest of the build sheet sheet is too long to list: head over to Il Ducatista for the full story.
