Well, my welder has been delayed due to some family problems (I can't blame him, he's got his priorities). So the build has been somewhat on hold. But I've been toying with fabing up the battery tray and lower tank mount, that 1098 tail is itty bitty to try to fit ANYTHING in.

Awesome project, I love the Duc tail. It looks quite fat and suits the size and shape of the R1 tank. The swingarm isn't to my taste, but I appreciate the effort and vision. Good luck man.

I appreciate it. Those were my thoughts about the tail too. I thought the Duc tail would suit the beefy front end of the R1 well.

And I saw where Nick Anglada had built an R1 with a Greggs single-sided with a Ducati hub. I liked the idea, but the swingarm he had was tubular and it didn't go will with the mass of the frame. So I decided to give the Duc swingarm a shot.



Update: Still waiting on the swingarm to get finished, so I figured I would disassemble the engine. I'm going to do a full engine flush and I got a new top end to put in it. Hopefully I'll get it all back together this week or next and crank it up for the first time.

Yea thats where we keep our stock pile of wild game (deer, bear, duck, etc) Luckily, we have another one in the house that we keep some in, so it's rare to have to go in that one.

I've actually only got $5200 invested in EVERYTHING(including the price of the bike).

I still have to get the Carrozzeria's and the tires, and paint, but thats only $2000-$2200 more. And I have about $1000 worth of spare parts to sell or just keep. So I'll be able to walk away from this build with it completely built for about $6500 (if I decide to sell those spare parts)

Well I figured out two things today while working on the R1 today...

1. What little bit of oil was left in the bike looked like this...


2. I need to back off from the trough a little because when I bent over in the shop, this happened...


But it's ok because...

1. The oil in the oil pump and oil filter was clean and clear which shows that the bike was never turned over after the accident.

2. No one was around to hear or see the rippage.
