  1. A customer booked his bike in with us for a complete respray a few weeks ago. It was a category d insurance right off that he picked up for an absolute bargain. All new bodywork was purchased though unfortunately was terrible quality and I spent hrs trying to make it fit. We've gone for Audi Nardo grey which is what seems to be the in colour to have your R8 these days. Coupled with a matte lacquered belly pan it should look clean and classy.

  7. Yup, that works. As stated, goes nicely with red frame.
     
  8. The Ducati wording on the tank is a sticker on top of the grey and then clear lacquer over the whole thing?
     
  9. Would love to do that myself, looks great.
     
  10. Yes. I can't stand graphics peeling back
     
  11. When's the colour coat going on?

  12. Its definelty a marmite love it/hate it kinda colour
     
  13. So - if you have a Cat D bike that's been completely restored and is as good as it was originally, is it possible to have an assessment undertaken that allows you to remove the Cat D status?

    If it isn't, then as a buyer I suppose you just have to decide for yourself whether the machine is acceptable to you. I'd certainly probably prefer to have a bike like this than a neglected one without the Cat D.

    And so to value: This bike would be worth less than a bike without the Cat D in the same condition - but how much less?
     
  14. That'll be a great looking bike I'm sure and what a great project too. Well done all round.:)
     
  15. It's coming together!

  19. about 25% IMO
     
  20. I like it for being different but if that was mine i'd colour code the rear subframe, wheels and probably front suspenion legs to red aswell...
