While interest in Untitled’s builds has grown via a custom-hungry Internet, their recent entry in the ‘Custom Rumble’ Ducati Scrambler build off garnered more attention than any prior work. The Rumbler was a custom Ducati competition, with six territories having popular-vote contests on dealer-sponsored builds (UMC worked with Marin Speed Shop). The UMC-038 “Hyper Scrambler” came in second in the North American contest, which suits Eccles fine: “The winner goes to World Ducati Week in Italy, and in a way it’s a blessing that we didn’t win, as our bike would be handed to Ducati for 13 months. Instead we’ve been able to show it around, in Portland and at the Handbuilt Show in Austin.” While the UMC-038 was featured on all the usual Alt.Custom websites, Eccles was most gratified by the attention from the non-motorcycle press, via features on Designboom, Playboy, GQ Italia, etc. The reason for the attention is obvious; the Hyper Scrambler’s razor-slim lines, outrageous color scheme, and aggressive proportions are real eye-catchers. Further scrutiny is equally rewarding, as the quality of Eccles’ execution, and his choices for important details like lighting and controls, give the impression UMC-038 is as functional as it is radical.
