    For the technical minded it was bored to 1100cc with bored out 42mm carbs, ca complete external oil feed system and twin plug heads and so on. the frame was super light chrome molly. I had to make a complete wiring loom as well as all the electrical fittings and the Oil filter ( from a mini) unit that fed the external feeds

    And no it didnt fit out the door....:crying:

    As that man said, that's an awesome job, and even more impressive with the facilities!

    I guess that was either a few years ago, or your flat was a shrine to the 80's ;)

    To get it out i took the rear mudgaurd off and the front wheel and wheeled it out in a vertical position on the back wheel.

    and yes Pete it was not the 80s but mid 90s done a few more since then

    Mate that is some nice work and great results. Are the ones inside on show or when they were up for sale?

    They were just on show at a friends shop, the silver and blue one is for sale now at the shop though. i dont build these anymore..been there done that :) plus the costs have rocketed. the 750SS in pic 2 would cost around £70k as it is and a wreck would be £40k ! so its all gone a bit daft now.
    Cheers :)

    Cool work.

    Never really been into bikes but think that Ducatti do some stunning kit that have a definate look of their own.
