    Default classic insurance

    Hi folks,
    Finally made some progress and now have a rebuilt engine sitting in the garage along with a pile of new to me spares. Starting to get a bit twitchy about of of this sitting around uninsured. Any offers please on company willing to insure a part finished project?

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry, I have no idea. There are firms that provide laid up cover though, perhaps you could insure it as a complete bike, although it's currently dismantled.

    Increase your home insurance to cover excess in garage?

    I think you'll find that your home insurance doesn't cover motor or motor related items.

    Default classic insurance

    Thanks Folks,
    Footman James were most helpful. I insured the GT as an ongoing project even though it is not assembled, and one other Duke which is minus the fairing and nose cone, which are at the painters for the market value. Not cheap but at least I have some piece of mind.
    I found the service excellent albeit a bit lengthy but that was mainly due to the slightly unusual request I was making.

    If I could work out how to post a pic I'd put one up of the completed engine of which I am inordinately proud. I took a recommendation from a member of this site to contact Van den Biggellar Ducati in Holland. I went over with everything and spoke with Jan, knowledgeable as one would expect after 50 years working with bevels. Very pleasant to deal with and only 80 miles from the Dutch coast. If you have to wait, the town where he is based is also very pleasant to spend a day or so in.

    In all of my part searches I have also found a German who lives in Belgium with more spares than I have ever seen for both round and square case. He bought the spares stock off two national importers back in the early 90s so if you are struggling to find that elusive bit PM me and I'll send you contact details.

    Glad you got sorted

    There really should be a sticky on how to post pictures
    There are 2 ways;

    1. As an attachment to your post. (These will appear as thumbnails, clicking on them shows the full size image in a pop-up box.)
    Using the advanced editor, scroll down below the text box to where it says Attachments and click on the Manage attachments
    In the pop up that opens click Add Files
    Choose the files you want to upload from your computer then click Upload (You can do 2 at a time). They will upload and appear in the attachments window in the pop up. Repeat this if you have more files to upload. Once you have uploaded your files make sure the ones you want to appear in the post are selected then click Done to put them at the bottom of your post or click Insert Inline to put them within the text at the current cursor position.

    2. As an embedded image.
    Firstly you must upload your pictures to an image hosting site. Photobucket used to be popular but since it started demanding a fee isn't used so much but there are others. Google "Free image hosting"
    Once your photos are uploaded open the one you want on the hosting site.
    Right click on it and select Copy image address
    On DuN in the advanced editor click the icon at the top of the text box that has a tree image and paste the URL of your photo into it.
    Click OK and the image URL will be pasted into your post between IMG /IMG markers.
    You can then preview your post to see that it looks OK then add more pictures if you like before clicking submit.

    Hope that helps
