Billy Duffy’s Multistrada

Posted: September 27th 2013 by MotoCorsa


When rock-and-rollers want a cool, custom Ducati, they call MotoCorsa.

Ever since the "Ducati All-Stars" played to a packed 500+ audience at MotoCorsa a few years ago, we've kept in touch. After we dialed in a custom Ducati GT1000 for Steve Jones of "Sex Pisols" fame, it was natural Billy Duffy of "The Cult" would be next. Billy had been wanting to do something a little different with his Multistrada Gran Turismo and he contacted us to share his dark vision.

Billy wanted his bike stealth, no two ways about it. His Multistrada was already a little sparse on the color palette, but we knew it could be taken further and set out to deliver something that'd fit the bill for Billy. Or Darth Vader. Arun and Hannah worked with Billy to discuss every detail and Senior Master Technician, AJ Ralston, did the build.

No detail was spared, and since this project was largely cosmetic, we blacked out everything possible. This machine was powder-coated and ceramic-coated to perfection. Fork legs, headlights, rear shock spring, brake calipers..everything. We even had a custom "dark" decal made for the front fender.

After reassembly, we packed up Billy's bike and sent it back to California, waiting nervously to see what he thought.
The text came to Arun a few days later: "Amazing. Perfect. Exactly what I wanted."
