Pics of my 1198

Ok, so it arrived last week. Got a couple of crate pics, but I think you'll find these a bit more interesting. 1 mile on the odometer....














Check this out for the "Worlds Greatest Dealer Award"

I was talking with my mechanic about the 1198S before it was delivered, and he's telling me how he's not a fan of the color combo on the S. I had to agree, I really like the red frame on the standard 1198, and on the 1098S in black....but the creme/tan that Ducati calls bronze, not so much. Anyway, so he says "why don't we strip it down to the frame and you can powder coat it whatever color you like"...I was thinking "great idea" but "how much???"

And the award goes to DSC and my mechanic Leu.

"Nothing, I wouldn't do it for anyone else...but I'll do it for you" says Leu. I figured we'd be doing it at my place, but no.... He's talked to the shop manager and the owner... they have no problem with him doing it right there, on a lift...with all the proper tools. Holy Crap....that's a deal I couldn't refuse.

So, here's my idea for color....feel free to chime in and let me know what you think!

Black frame, black clamps, gold wheels similar to the mags color. I've got a black windscreen already installed into the shell....kinda going to a stealth black design.

That's awesome. Any stipulations with that, like you need their stickers on it, or you need to show up to different shows with it? More or less using your bike as a promo to make a little extra later on. If not, nice work.

If not black then at least a gun metal or dark silver frame. I don't like the red or the tan frame either, sounds like yours will look pretty sweet.

Holy frig, did you luck out! That's gonna look sweet! Make sure you post some pic's when yer all done.

I still can't get use to the color of the rims, they're not bad or anything they just don't do it for me. And a pinstripe wouldn't look good on them either. You need to paint the rims so you can put a nice stripe on them like the 1098s rims.

Geeze Zman - what a charmed life you're living.

Whatever you're doing - keep it up.

thats wonderful. You have a great deal for that because the dealer is not charging you at all for labors. Specially when labor of this type of work is couple of hundreds or close to thousand. Lucky bud!

Congrats on the new bike. Your dealer seems very cool, and they would certainly earn my business for life if I were you. Enjoy that S and the DTC!

Thanks guys, feeling pretty lucky these days. I'm definitely excited about the progress. At this point, I'm reasonably sure that I'm going with: Black frame, black clamps, black exhaust, ASV black levers with red adjusters (already have these), with gold wheels. Also considering doing my sprocket in black, and the calipers. I've got a little time before I have to decide, but that's the current list.

Nah, I don't have to sticker it up with DSC, or show up at any events, or consider it a Promo Bike. Although, I'd help these guys with about anything, so if they wanted me to hand it over here and there, I wouldn't have a problem with it. These guys are awesome....they're just doing it as a favor and for the fun!


Here are some more pics....The mechanic took these on Saturday when he disassembled it. I wasn't able to make it that day, so I was pretty impressed he took these shots.

Wow! That is crazy! Great customer service. I am just stunned from seeing your beautiful bike in parts. I saw powder coat the wheels and frame a nice gunmetal grey, that with the bodywork and the carbon bits would look the shiznit!

Does all this assembly, disassembly, void your warranty?

I can't see how it could. The mechanic doing the work is a certified Ducati Tech, at a certified Ducati dealer...so not sure what rules we're breaking (if any).

Congratulations on the new bike and great mod's zman!
If I was so lucky, and wanted the 'stealth' look, I'd add the BST cf wheels too! http://www.blackstonetek.com/include...098-Wheels.jpg
