I dont care for it, If I were gonna paint a Duc aftermarket... I'd keep it simple like gloss black with "Ghost Flames". FYI, ghost flames are just clearcoat paint with a minimal amount of metalic flakes in it... cant really see them til the sun hits it just right.
BUT, it does look better than the local joker in town who painted his 996 that chameleon green/purple crap! He also painted the 996 numbers in gothic font!
His bike looks like a "Bone Thugs in Harmony" pimp cycle now!
That bike can win the Laguna Seca Ducati show.
Anyone here see best Superbike last year?
(bright metallic blue, everything chromed or polished, #69 number plate...if memory serves)
(apolgies in advance if anyone here owns that...)
I bet you'd like it if there was a vented carbon front fender on it.
Ha-ha...only if it was cheap. Like, say I won it in a raffle or something./images/icons/laugh.gif Speaking of which, I just put it on the bike this evening. James of MotoWheels and I have been going back and forth over the past couple of weeks. Full details to follow along with pics. For now, suffice it to say that James ROCKS!!! Great guy to do business with. I probably won't get a chance to get pics until next week, but I'll get them up as soon as I can.
I hope that after I die, people will say of me: "That guy sure owed me a lot of money."
I saw that Blue/Chrome 996.
I took did not like it.
He chromed the stock cans!
NOT EVEN CORED!!(hehehe)
If the guy had enough money to chrome everything, he could at least have tried to tune the thing.
I saw it too at the Cow Palace last year, but I think it was a 916. I'll see if I can dig up the picture. I brought my camera thinking there'd be a bunch of nice bikes, but ended up taking one picture of the one Duc in the entire place. Everything else were rice-rocket bump-mobiles or neon-colored Jap bikes. That was a joke. Anyway, I thought the chrome was way too much. Did you notice how he removed the rear vents and stuffed his turn signals way down into the cowl? And this thing won a prize? With wires hanging everywhere, including the battery? LOL What a POS!
