Well its been a long time since any updates, the twins are being good and giving me more man cave time.
The main wiring loom has been done, and everything works, though did have a few head scratching moments.
Modern thin wall wiring really helps in reducing harness size, harness simply follows throttle cables under the tank, and no clearance issues, loads of room, so no nasty cable ties to blight the frame.
Have just to complete harness to seat unit and a few other little jobs so nearly done.

Keith,
How do you find these things. That is amazing. Love Spondons and love Ducatis. Perfect.

Love to see that come together.

Let me know when you get started on that and on which forum Shocked

That is a great looking machine, a real credit to you Waggy. Really nice to see an older model Bimota getting some attention. Hope you let us all know how well it goes. Well done!

Great job! 1453cc sounds like it will be a lot of fun. You don't see many 16" wheels any more.
