Beautiful Ducati Dustinbin Special Heading For Auction
Technically this is a motorcycle, but it looks more like a work of art. It was built by renonwed metal fabricator Evan Wilcox who has a one year backlog of work because he is in such high demand. The guy is just that good as demonstrated by this incredible Ducati Dustbin Special. Wilcox built this as a passion project for himself. It is a 1959 Ducati 175 single with enclosed aluminim bodywork inspired by Grand Prix road racers. He typically spends 40-50 hours on a gas tank alone so just think about how much time it took for him to complete this bike. RELATED: Check Out This Custom Triumph Made for David Beckham
The dustbin fairing was hand-beaten by Wilcox with the front fairing consisting of a single sheet of aluminum. According to Silodrome, riginal dustbin bikes were outlawed in 1958 due to the dangers of their limited front wheel steering. They easily became unstable and were particularly susceptible to strong crosswinds.
Wilcox has decided to sell this labor of love with a surprisingly low expected sale price of between $10,000 and $14,000. Visit Bonhams for the full listing and be ready to place your bid on January 7.
