Ducati will auction a Maverick custom Scrambler on June 2, at MECUM’s Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa. This unique motorcycle was designed by renowned tattoo artist, GRIME, to benefit the charity of his choice, Shriners Hospital for Children.
More than 250 hours of precise fabrication went into transforming the Scrambler Icon into a unique creation. It was artistically handcrafted through the forming of steel and aluminum in order to merge the world of motorcycling with that of tattooing, bringing together titans of separate industries for creative expression.
The Scrambler Maverick build was supported by his local Ducati dealership, Marin Speed Shop. GRIME’s design consists of a custom-fabricated gas tank, tail and headlight, with paint influenced by the Italian Football Federation’s colors and extensive re-wiring by Ducati master technician Max Mueller. Additional modifications include: fully-adjustable fork cartridges, Öhlins rear shock with remote pre-load and adjustable compression, Custom 2-1-2 Termignoni High-Mount Exhaust, custom seat, rear taillight from a Ducati 996, dual throttle body conversion, dashboard and an oil cooler from a Ducati Hypermotard.
Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati North America, will be in Las Vegas to present the Shriners Hospital for Children with the full proceeds from the auction.
On June 2, bids will be accepted at the auction, by telephone or online.
