Krugger hardtails the Triumph Bonneville Bobber

Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand has a specialty: winning world championships. He’s taken home the Big One from the AMD show twice so far, and picked up multiple other awards too. The Belgian wizard is the master of the grand slam, pull-out-all-the-stops build, without resorting to peanut tanks or 30” front wheels. But what happens when Krugger turns his hand to a manufacturer commission—with strict orders not to apply the grinder to the frame, or loosen the engine bolts? This hardtail Bobber is the a...

Devil in Disguise: Krugger reworks the Ducati Diavel

Remember the stir when the Ducati Diavel was launched back in 2010? It’s hard to believe that the brutish ‘power cruiser’ has been on the market for nearly seven years now—but there’s still nothing quite like it under 250 kilos. To maintain interest, Ducati has boosted the Diavel range to five models, all pumping out a solid 152 horses. And it’s just gone a step further: the factory has commissioned Fred ‘Krugger‘ Bertrand, one of the world’s most acclaimed custom builders, to restyle the XDia...
