Nice build on a cool bike, well worth bringing up to the front once more.

Thanks. I hadn't realized it had been so long ago that I posted this thread. I went back and read some of the posts and noticed it was 8 years ago today that I started working on it.

I'm afraid I didn't ride the bike much at all this past summer. I never did get around to fixing all the things that I thought I would - since it's been a runner I haven't done much more than change the oil on it. The exhaust still needs to be replaced. The gauges still need to be restored - in fact the tach needle broke off in 2009! I noticed the last couple times I rode it that the clutch is slipping... basically the bike needs some TLC. I'm also considering collecting parts to take it back to more of a stock appearance, I dunno, we'll see.

I'm guessing you got here via my 160 thread that I updated tonight? That bike is my main focus now. It's been sitting for far too long and I think I can have it on the road this summer. Then maybe the 750 will get some of the attention it deserves.

I've got roughly $10k into the bike at this point, but like I said it's not "done" yet.

I'm rebuilding a Ducati single right now and it's a lot easier to deal with than the twin was. I've got two more singles to work on after that, and then I think I'm done with old Ducatis??? Or more likely, by the time I've finished with them, the current bikes will be old so I'll be playing with them instead.
