Walt Seigel Motorcycles Leggero series Ducati racers


Walt Siegel is a master at building bespoke Ducati racers. We love just about all of his bikes and still love his Puma cafe racer build we featured a while back. Walt has built a stable of custom Ducatis dubbed "Leggeros" and will make them to your custom specifications. He now also sells the parts separately, so guys like you and I could feasibly build our own, but they still won't come cheap. 






When building your Leggero, you start with your WSM (Walt Siegl Motorcycles) frame and body work. You can run a front bikini fairing or not, opt for dual shocks or a mono shock, and pick your donor motor - so long as it's an air-cooled Ducati (options include 750SS, 800SS, 900SS or 1000SS, or any Monster model up to 2007). The stock swingarm, shock, wheels, fork, and all brake components on the above donor bikes are compatible.




Walt has a full line of Leggero builds which you can see here, but the "Los Angeles" pictured here is probably our favorite. The simple black and white lets the beauty of WSM's frame and bodywork shine.




It's definitely fun to look through WSM's current Leggeros and to mentally build your own. I have more than once convinced myself that building my own might seem like a reasonable idea, but when putting pen to paper, the costs add up quickly. A guy can dream, right?
