Walt Siegl is one of the finest custom motorcycle builders in the world today, we’ve covered his work in the past with features on the MotoBee, the Riviera Ducati SS, the WS Sport Classic and the FX Roadster.
This bike, a cafe racer called “Motobee” was built by Walt in 2010, it’s based on a 1983 Harley-Davidson Sportster but as with all Siegl builds, not much of the original bike remains.
When it comes to custom motorcycles, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more talented builder than Walt Siegl. With a rare blend of aesthetic sensibility and technical capability, the motorcycles he creates always create significant fan fare when they roll out of his humble workshop.
We’ve been in touch with Walt and he agreed to give us an exclusive look inside his workshop, so we can all see the process of taking a Ducati 900SS and turning into what you see above and below.
From a pure engineering standpoint, Walt Siegl is one of the top bike builders in the world today. Anyone who would argue against that statement is unworthy to ever sit in the saddle of a motorcycle.
