Thought I'd share some of the process I have been going through with my bike - It was a 1992 ducati 900ss - non original but in pretty good nick - I hated the rear end and wanted to see more metal - and have been inspired by the bikes on bikeexif

My process has not been to have a clear idea and build the bike from the ground up  - hope to do so one day - but has been alot more trial and (lots of!) error  - more an evolving process with the bike not being off the road for too long - and have worked on whatever I think helps improve the look and feel of the bike as I go along

It is a blast of a bike to ride


Here is an earlier version with a bikini faring and red rear seat cowl  



Here is an early dash



Just having stripped the paint on the tank



Stripped with no bikini  - sounds good!



With a pack rack almost ready for a trek ... over 3000 kms if all goes well

" />

Have replaced the dash with one that has tacho and speedo  

Next targets for evolution include sorting out the colours of frame/wheels - gold wheels maybe  ...  replacing plastic with metals ... redo seat cowl  ...  sorting out all the wiring properly  ...

In a couple of days I am going to ride the bike from north of Auckland down to Cromwell - or at least that is the aim. Hopefully down the West Coast ..... and maybe up the East Coast of the North  - depending on what state the bike and the rider are in ....

Should be one hell of a ride   Twisted Evil  cheers

Good looking bike and as long as you like it, that's what counts. Looks a bit quick for me though ! Wink Enjoy your trip..
