To do OR Not to do... That is the question! (POLL)

So as many of you know, with my recent post, I purchased a 1996 Ducati 900SS SP. And let me start by saying... I have only driven it 7 miles... and I LOVE it. It's a mechanical symphony with plenty of power.

BUT... Here's the kicker. I have a problem with things not being perfect. Which means that I want to fix all the little problems with the bike, mainly replacing or repainting the fairings. Basically I feel like I may sink about $800 just into cosmetic fixes.

In that light I consider this...

I came across it by accident. But I Love it too.

So my question??
Should I chop up my Duci and go with (another) café racer? Or keep her original?

I don't see the actual poll options but she is hot both ways. I'm not a big cafe guy but that is hot, especially the completely naked one.

Chop that up if it's going to look like one of those! I'll snap a pic of my MC and send it to you when I get off my lazy and into the hot garage.

If you do, you'll have one of a head turner.
