so after digging into my pile of shite i picked up cheap but didnt really need at the time


we have a ducati 999 seat unit and subframe
a vfr single sided swingarm and wheel
a vfr single sider with triumph 1050 hub and wheel
a cbr 900front end with both cbr 9 and triumph 1050 wheel and discs to match
a full stainless exhaust and a brand new aluminium aftermarket radiator
so the makings of a tidy ped

[ the ducati seat unit and subframe is fitted already] but i dont have pics yet ..............have to say it looks fkn awesome too in my opinion

so ime ummin and argghing about polishing or powdercoating the frame need to pull my finger out and make a decision so i can get it done then crack on
[anyone know if cbr900 rearsets fit a blackbird ??] answers on a postcard please

werent you or didnt you build a custom frame to build that into Yan?

today was spent bead blasting the frame if it was in good condition i would have kept the factory finish/black but it was flaking and generaly looking shite
plan is camo green bodywork [Matt] maybe with a sign written type of design as back in the day they used to do it ..
ime umming and arghing about wether to black the frame and swingarm gloss/flat

or Matt camo green then paint the motor summat bright to add a bit of colour to break it up
