I am not a yap bike guy, and to my un trained round eye, it looks like a red bike with some ferrari stickers. Nothing jumps out as custom or "themed". Its clean, its red and its a bike.
Even the TV posers make theme bikes that look like the approach they chased, like the fire fighter bike had a ladder, the jet bike had a cockpit gas tank....mebbe your ferrari theme bike shoulda had a V-12 hanging out of it.
Mebbe a momo leather wrapped steering wheel instead of bars.....mebbe a gold chained hairy chested Italian dude sitting on it, I dunno, just a few ideas to help with your theme.

More pics added


http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/mammot.../ph//my_photos

We built the upper fairing & fairing bracket from scratch. The paint was sourced from Ferrari as were the insignia. The seat is italian leather. In addition to the PM wheels we have a second set of Marchesini's off a Ducati 999 we fabbed up to fit that match the gray powdercoat. but in the end I guess its just a red bike with some stickers.

thanks for on 3 months of my work......gotta love the internet. I didn't post this to get critiqued on the bike. Pics on the internet are never going to do it justice.....I was just hoping that maybe someone had some helpful suggestions on finding a car

man, don't get so hurt that we didnt oooooh and aaaaaah like you expected.
nobody on your work, we did say it looks clean, but come on man, just cause its got red ferrari paint and an italian leather in the seat doesnt make it a theme bike. Understand it looks so much other bikes that your 3 months of effort dont show. Again, it is a clean bike (running a smidgen lean by looks of the pipe) Take it as constructive critism and on the next bike you could make more of a theme bike by mebbe mounting some huge assed Mickey Mouse ears , and a Goofy nose, a Donald Duck tail and you could call it a Disney theme bike. Then we could all agree on what ya got

I could be wrong but I always thought the Agusta looked pretty Ferrari like bone stock. Even priced to match.

i say take the ferrari stickers off and ride it as a custom gixxer rather then a ferrari themed bike. i think it will get more positive attention rather then criticism
