That front scrub looks like the rear tyre on my moto Twisted Evil

I love the build Attila Smile I don't know that much about the Ducati motor, but will the Pipercross filter be as efficient as an airbox? Keep the pics coming Wink

It's off my old GSXR600 track bike, 3 days at Portimao does tend to chew em up a bit Wink

Cheers bud, a fairly common tweak on the ST4 is to take the lid off the airbox. The pipercross filter probably takes it a bit too far if I'm honest but it does look better than a big plastic box and gives me a larger space under the tank to hide some of the wiring. Smile

It's alive, IT'S ALIVE!!!

We cranked it a few times with the fuel tank off to get some oil flowing through it, then when we connected up the tank it fired first prod of the button, happy days!
I was expecting it to be louder to be honest but it's got a lovely bassy note in person.

Lovely. Wink

I restored a Honda CB250RS-A back in 1985, totally different kettle of fish I know, but a Hell of a lot of work went into it and the thrill of starting it up for the first time, coupled with the unusual exhaust note for a single cylinder thumper, was brilliant. Very Happy

You're right, the first fire up of a long term project is a great feeling! Do you have any pics of the CB250RS?

I don't have any pics of the RS250, was back in '85 and pictures weren't as ten a penny as they are nowadays, had just finished a rebuild of Honda CB400N which I wrote off in a bad crash.

Used to love tinkering with motorbikes, great fun. Very Happy Very Happy

Attila, sounds great and bet you can't wait to get it o the road Smile

Gunner, you got me thinking of the fun days of the Suzuki T250 'Hustler', the T500, and more 'manic' Kwakker H1 and H2's with expansion pipes! oooh, just wait for the 'power band' to kick in Laughing Laughing Laughing

Brilliant effort there dude Cool .. I love peoples face's when they here a dry clutch for the first time Laughing

Having rebuilt a few bikes myself, and modify just about everything that I own Laughing Rolling Eyes .. looks like that has been a fairly costly project ? .. tho I tend be a tart with things like this and polish, powder coat, and anodize as I'm going .. which slows progress massively, and rapes the budget Rolling Eyes ... but it looks good Laughing

Lovin this build, that triple clamp is cool as! Cool .. a mate bought one of the last 998's (998S Final Edition) before they stopped making the old twin pipe seat unit models, the one with all the good stuff on (Ohlins, Termys, Marchesini's, etc etc) .. its only done about 1500mls from new Surprised and sits in his conservatory under a Ducati cover he got from the factory when he visited there Cool .. (I keep threatening to get him p!ssed, so I can nick it and go for a blast Laughing )

Well done pal Wink

Cheers guys, I just wish I had a bit more spare time to work on it!

It's not been a cheap project I admit but it hasn't cost as much as you might imagine as I've done so much myself, costs will definitely go up when it comes to the finishing touches though, they always do!

I'm desperate to ride it now, it's been off the road for too long...

Cheers guys, it should be on the road in the spring with any luck. The wiring is nearly done now (no photos as its not exactly exciting), then I have a few mounts to fabricate and it's onto tidying up and finishing it off.
