    Bored today so I trimmed down a carbon fibre (damaged) front mudguard.

    I hack sawed off the damaged parts:



    Then I sanded off the front area:





    Looks quite good for a free bit of kit. Not sure which bike I will use it on yet.

    Did a little more today, although the fuel tank needs to be redone as the decals are not right yet.



    Flat drag bars:





    In a couple of weeks the loom will be put into position.

    Cool Its been a while!!

    It has been a while since I have fettled the project Monster. MADASL moved to Wales and took my bikes with him, so today I finally went over to work on one of them.

    The rear brake hose was replaced with a stealth braided version.

    I finally fitted the radiator, without the fan. Once the work was done it was back into the conservatory as a talking piece.

    Just the final electrics, fluids and some other bits to finish it off. It might be done for next year!!

    Got a custom expansion tank to fit to the back of the radiator between the fins:

    What's the gold paint you used on the clutch and valve covers? It looks like just what I need for the valve covers on my 907ie.

    Here ye go Derek http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colours.php Give the details of bike colour etc and they will make it up in rattl can or tin , they also supply the etching primer and laquer. Ive used them in the past good paint but needs the laquer to cure the paint.

    I'm familiar with RS Bike paints Sam and have also used them before but they don't list any gold as used by Ducati on engine parts. There are plenty of gold paints that I could use but I'm looking for a particularly yellowish shade similar to that in Yorkie's pics.
    Thanks for your help.

    The 888 rear shock is off to get totally rebuilt and I wedged an SS shock in its place.

    The rear 888 shock was looking shabby so it was off for a total rebuild:



    After 27 years it was time for a refresh:
