Wreckless H4MM4 Ducati Speedway Motorcycle

Mention Ducati and the image that comes to mind is a sleek blur of red on two wheels and the whine of twin-cylinder motors and dry clutches. Speedway racing is the exact opposite — strange-looking frames packing small-displacement motors on dirt ovals while sliding sideways most of the time. But UK-based Wreckless Motorcycles thought the combination of Italy and homebrew ingenuity would make for an interesting project, and that's how their H4MM4 Ducati-engined speedway bike came into being. The discovery of an early-70s 450cc Desmo Ducati single-cylinder kicked the whole project off. A Jawa speedway frame from the same era was modified to fit the motor, and a host of custom parts adorn the bike. In tribute to Wreckless founder Rick Geall's favorite F1 driver Louis Hamilton, the bike is painted in Mercedes F1 team colors and logos. As strange as speedway bikes might look, this passion project is one of the most interesting customs you'll find.
