Custom Ducati TT3 Difazio Leaves You Speechless
It's the case of Belgian customizer Bernard Mont and his awesome project TT3 Difazio. Based on one of the most popular choices for bike tuning, a Ducati 990 SS, the new beast just leaves known standards behind and goes its own way.
Little would its donor recognize from the old Ducati 990 SS, after Bernard Mont, a declared fan of the hub center steering (HCS) system, has laid his hands on it. If you've never seen HCS bikes before, the system can be quite puzzling, and even have some of you frowning a bit.
Mont wanted to honor the memory of Jack Difazio, the man who made hub center steering popular back in the 1970's and that's how the 990 SS lost its fork. The rear cowl has been redesigned and got a nifty retro-style tail light, while the vintage looks extended to the front fairing, honoring the racing bikes of yore.
The TT3 Difazio received a Moto Guzzi V11 front wheel and multiple aftermarket components, such as the exhaust line, shocks and seat. The result is a classic super sport bike with a major dose of “prototype blood” in it, looking even more fun with the black racing stripes on it.
