      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.

            funny what people associate as old or vintage.

            When i think older Ducati it is invariably late 80ís or early 90ís

            exhibit A

            lol bevel ducatis must be ancient then Önot to mention bevel singles from the 60's

            exhibit B:

                "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."

                  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.

                    Possibly one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time...

                    I wonder if I can get a Duc past the nopics...

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

                        I didn't invest hours of my employer's time to just give away trade secrets.

                          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.
