Made in Wigan. Michael's company, Premier Autotrim in Wigan, Lancs, usually turns out gorgeously upholstered seats but he's sensibly turned his hand to working on his passion for bikes, building this Ford GT40 inspired Ducati SS 900 ie. This is actually the third bike Michael has put together, having been inspired by owning a newSS in 2006. He loved the bike, but not the looks and went on to modify it to look like a 1960s cafe racer. Other people loved it so much that he decided to start making more, each different from the last. With it's stubby pipes, metal belt covers, race-style twin filler caps, drilled swinger and modified orange frame the bike looks great, and as you'd expect, the seat is beautifully upholstered too.
