Re-Building The Legend!

The tragic end of an era on my beloved Ducati ended on May 20th 2016 due to an accident that left me no choice but to rebuild to a newer, lighter & slightly different look on my bike...

The day that I bought it July 21 2012...



That's when I decided that I wanted a nice streetable show bike to ride...fast forward 3 years later & 4 first place wins from the show with 20k kms on the clock was the transformation with tons of custom parts...


The downfall on May 20th 2016...




Now the time has come to revive the legend back to its glory with some new twists!

New parts ordering will start tomorrow & will update as they come in...

Sorry to hear man...one of my favorite 848's on this forum.

Bright side is at least you're ok. A bike could always be rebuilt, but not a person.

Best of luck with your rebuild @sinister. I'm sure you have some nice plans for it!

From the size of those chicken strips, maybe you should invest in some riding lessons before throwing away more money on a bike you you haven't learned to ride.

Damn what an asshole lol I didn't think I would see the day where someone was more of a dick then Daledo haha but you my fine sir surpassed my judgement with flying colors. If the man wants to ride his bike leisurely on the road let the man do so. I have chicken strips on my bike does that mean I can't ride? Just cause I don't like to lean my bike that hard on the street I guess I haven't learned to ride I'm such a failure at life cause of chicken strips. Gosh darnet

Rebuilding The Legend 2016

Yeah it was a successful show bike, not a track bike. Different priorities; nothing wrong with that

Oh really? Maybe you should stop been an Internet keyboard pro racer and invest in time to get out to meet women in the real world...instead of wasting your time on blow up dolls & meaningless remarks on other peoples posts!

I bet that you are the guy that leans way over in city streets at 20 mph to make sure nobody bothers you at your local coffee shop hang out...or you most likely just sand down the edges on your tires lol!

You can also take a sand paper to your knee sliders to give you additional street cred
