The last mile on any project is always he toughest, but yesterday I breathed an immense sigh of relief as I glued the seat pad onto the freshly painted tail section and marked the completion of a four month project to convert my old Ducati TT1 to street trim for its new owner (based in Miami).
The whole process seemed to be counter to my usual style - converting street bikes to race and track machines - and there were times where I felt like I'd lost my way, but the finished project put a smile on my face when I rolled it out into the sun yesterday afternoon.
Lotsa drama, plenty of set-backs and no shortage of stress - all good fodder for a story at a later date.
What I love about the finished product is that it's still a capable track bike - the lights and tag holder/tail light/indicators all come off in less than 10 minutes.
Plenty of hi-ez pics on my Flickr site.
