    This is my Fizzy after a couple of days of angry beaver paint work.

    Before




    I bought this one cheap, with rash but without keys....and no, it wasn't stolen.

    My idea was to make a naked streetfighter



    but here's a long sad story.

    On the ride back home from a gathering in Dawson city, the final drive in my BMW GS did what they seem to do best-puke up the bearing in the final drive. SInce I have this week off and the weather in nice, I wanted to go riding so I did a 20 footer paint job, put the bike back together and went for a very nice check ride today, only a couple hundreds miles worth.

    It may get the naked streetfighter treatment this winter, depends on if I can find a way to warm up my shop. In the summer I'd rather ride.

    Love the pictures....and what is the rear cowl off of for your streetfighter?

    Also would like to know if you still have the black fairing and might be willing to part with it?? (don't waste anytime around hear looking for extras....let me know)

    It is going to take grit, spit, and lots of duct tape...

    The rear cowl is from a Ducati superlight. As for the black fairing, it is now a sunburst orange fairing....and the corner is missing off the right side. A DPO laid the bike down at least once. So I will be of no help whatsover, I'm afraid.

    What did you have to do to make it fit? I would so like to be able to eliminate the passenger seat and go with the look you have on your streetfighter.

    I should probably clarify here!

    The streetfighter is a mockup only. At this point in time, there is no assembled streetfighter, I ended up putting the Fizzy back together. In the future, though, there could be a streetfighter.

    As for the fit of the rear cowl-basically, I stripped the rear of the bike to the frame. The Ducati cowl fit over the frame rails very closely, and the rear of the cowl hid the rear part of the frame.

    I have to admit that I'm actually thinking of going the other way if I want to change the machine. Maybe a set of lowers?

    Or maybe I'll dual sport it. :rmwl:

    To continue-the seat came off this bike



    Ducati 900SS/SP that a previous owner had made into a more vintage/classic cafe style bike, lovely to look at but borderline ridable on the street. I redid the bike into a standard style-



    but kept the fairing and rear seat.

    The pipes on that bike were awesome. Basically empty stainless steel cones, they would set off car alarms. But the sound of that Ducati twin through those pipes was like the merciless hammerings of the lesser dieties, the best sound a bike has ever made.

    I warned you guys about the pictures.

    Well, I'm lovin' it! What is it that you do to allow yourself the luxury of working on soo many different types of motorcycles?

    BTW, feel free to check out the BOM (within the forum and picture gallery) and post up what you have had, presently have, or are gong to have.

    I have obtained a set of lowers (black -- and I haven't had time to mount them yet Billy (FZ1riderNY) but I don't know the final verdict yet...on if they'll stay or pass them onto someone else and go for just the lower bellypan and who knows?
