Dropped the Kwack in to have the valve clearances checked earlier today, the chap that's doing it for me is Andy, he used to be a mechanic at Forza Italia and he's got a unit of his own now ...
He likes modding his bikes as well and this is one he's had on the go for ages , first time ive seen it in the flesh was today..
It's a gen 2 Tuono, got a 916 swingarm and im pretty sure the tank is a handmade larger capacity one, plus the fairing is from one of Chris Walkers old Foggy Petronas bikes ...
He's still got to finish the exhaust and get it painted but I reckon it's looking very cool😎🖒

Wowsers, That's different! In a good way! Thumbs Up

I'd like just a little more side fairing, but that's ace. Lot of work gone into it. Is the seat / tail fairing Petronas too? The nose looks really nice.
Question everything.

Howdy Rick.
I'm honestly not sure, only had a chance for a quick natter this morning when I dropped the bike in, the bellypan is off of something else and I've got a feeling the tail is as well but I'll find out a bit more about it later on.
He did have a carbon fibre single swinger on it to begin with but had to sell it during a low cash flow moment .
I think it'll look well tidy when it's all sorted, different but very smart.

Had a good chat with him when I picked up the bike and the seat unit is all hand built in aluminium, as is the tank, and hes just in the process of finishing off the exhaust...hes hoping to get it finished and painted in time for the Brackley festival of bikes .

Tidy aren't they Ad, I fell in love with his Duke as soon as I saw it last year, it's absolutely tiny as well, I'd never fit on it in a million years .
The stand was funny as well, think he's got it clipped inside the fairing now (it's a nicely machined thing that slides over the footrest) but he used to just have it in a little backpack and had to get it out of that whenever he parked up .
I'm looking forward to seeing the Tuono when he finishes it off, should look gorgeous .

That's perfect for my midget frame then haha not sure about sticking the side stand in a rucksack though even worse than the ape one at least it's attached joking aside he's obviously a very handy bloke fair play in wish I had a fraction of that talent to build a special one off if I done it it would definitely be special but not in a good way!

Maybe it's just me but the back end of that Rsv is at the wrong angle. It looks like it's been shunted up the bum and doesn't flow with the lines of the bike at all.

Don't do anything for me

You can buy the Ducati as a kit ... frame and body kit etc ...the guy lists them on ebay

All you need is a 750/900ss

Still much nicer if you've got the skills to build it all yourself though😎

He'll never do that, he lives on the IOM.
By the time he's set off he's back home, surprised he hasn't had to extend his garage just to fit it in 😄😄
