    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Iíd probably match the wheels to the frame colour. That said, do as I say not as I do...... Is some great liveries for these bikes although I hadn't seen Polizei look. Very cool. They do look the business with race liveries on them.

    Always wanted to do one of these but doesn't look right on my model.
    Couldn't stand to look at the 749/999 when they were released but they have grown on me.

    I think I've actual got some infostrada decals somewhere, was going to put them on my Mito when it was still a functional 125 as a sort of mini Bayliss replica.

    The Ducati 916 launched 25 years ago now.

    Yeah,

    I kind of think bevel drive when I think proper old Ducati, but the 916 era are no spring chickens. Still turn heads and have held up well with the test of time.

    I still think any bike with fuel injection is a modern bike, showing my age I suppose.

    Been busy like you with hols and stuff. Also trying to get my work area finished.


    /a401844f60f0d3366051d0b436711b1c.jpg[/IMG]


    Spent too much time on garagejournal.com working out how to get the crispest lines on my painting.

    Bought a couple of tools for disassembly and diagnosed a faulty reg rec the cause of battery not charging.

    Should get a good run at it the next two weeks.

    Man, your workspace is nicer than my kitchen.
    So, how do you get such crisp lines in the paint?

    Painting is done and it's time to start pulling this thing apart.
    Didn't go well at the start. Plastic quick release fuel fittings leaked from the tank side as soon as disconnected...no Biggie.
    One snapped at the top of the thread as soon as I tried to remove.
    Why they thought plastic fuel fittings above a cylinder head is a good idea is beyond me, metal ones are on the way.

    That's the thread I got the part NOS from.

    So the airbox is gazeboed, it looks like someone has installed the engine through the air box.

    Also no big deal as I like the look of the exposed carbon on the fruitier models.

    Everything apart from the tank with the awkward fuel connections seems to be coming apart easily. I like how they did the plugs at the headlight bucket with weatherproof plugs fixed at the female side.
    It also seems if something is not coming apart easily I'm doing it wrong.


    In the last pic there is a good quality multi pin round plug that separates almost everything forward of the steering tube.
