Crashed Ducati Sport 1000 Becomes Eye-Candy Custom Bike [Photo Gallery]
Bent forks and front wheel, frame broken beyond repair, wrecked handles and front end, that's how the bike looked like after a sever crash Andy got involved in. Yet the remaining fully-working engine and Zard titanium exhausts were all Andy needed to start building a new bike.
Sporting a new Paul Smart frame and custom tank, the new Ducati came back to life. A deep gloss black powder coating paint covered the frame and a hand-made custom seat with Motokouture leatherwork add to the unique character of the Ducati Sport 1000.
Marchesini wheels and rear caliper came from a donor 999, while a 998 provided the front one together with the rotor. A carbon fiber Ducati S4R fender was added, while the fornt end was completed with Motowheels headlight unit, Oberon mirror and Speedymoto clip-on handles.
Just like anyone would have expected, the dry clutch of a Ducati screams for an open cover to show off through. The paint job was mad in-house and the Zard exhausts have been mounted once more, to roar and ride in greater style. So that's what 4 months of dedication and work look like, and we hope Andy will not have to start over too soon.
Via Il Ducatista.
