Good day to you all. Well the MHR is finally finished, and its looking pretty bloody good. I can't quite believe that it has taken 4 months to do this. A massive learning curve along the way that's for sure. And some issues that could have easily been avoided, both by me and others, but you live and learn I suppose. Anyways it's all done, up and running, just trying to get 2 spring clips for one gas line and it will be ready to photograph and put up on EBay. I thought it was sold to a guy in America, but he has since bought a SS ( an SS sounds better), so now we go about selling it. The Scuderia NCR is going up on the stand today for the dismantle process to begin, and the hopefully not so long road to turning that into another beautiful Ducati classic. I must admit to have really enjoyed the process of re building this motorcycle, and seeing it transform like a Phoenix rising from it's rather inauspicious beginnings. I perhaps went too far with some things in an attempt to get it just right, but at the end of the day you can't beat getting it just right. And it is just right, that's for sure. Would you pay 12 pound for the period correct sticker on the left front fork?, Ha Ha because I did. And now looking at it, I have a quiet smug self satisfied feeling for going that extra bit to ensure of its correctness, and it's proper value. I mentioned on my FB page the other day I was quietly shitting myself about fitting the screen having never done that before, as I didn't want to crack it when drilling. The solution? My trusty soldering iron, it was perfect, worked a treat by melting the correct size hole, and once the very front one was done, it was really only a matter of an hour to have it mounted perfectly, so a handy tip for all you restorers and builders out there.
Anyways keep you eyes peeled for the sale of this stunner in the next couple of weeks and continue to enjoy my little corner of the world.
That's all folks, have a great weekend, and enjoy your time on your bike, and with your mates.
