2012 Ducati 848 Evo - On the chopping block

Not sure if this was the right section.

I wouldn't say I wanna do a "cafe" style or more just retro -or- just a bad streetfighter bike.We will figure it out as we go.

Anyways we start off with a stock Ducati 848 evo.

28le7eo

2819en7

And then just start yanking off parts

2zfttle

Gonna work on a custom tail section next and make a seat pan.

I want to get rid of several brackets including the evap canister stuff,fairing stays and other little bits.

Exhaust I will save for last since its gonna take some time.Im thinking of leaving it open style but with a tri exit setup by the rear wheel.

Kinda would like to make it a 2 seater but dont think a straight seat frame will work...without someone flying off.

I will have to find it and get some ideas.

Im not sure what colors I wanna do on this yet.I hate that the tank isn't metal and cant be powder coated.

This is the bird's next I need to clean up.Previous owner said "someone" tipped it over on this side while it was parked hence the clutch cover and brake pedal.

Need to
-powdercoat the clutch cover
-remove evap canister
-replace oil cooler lines to something nicer
-replace brake pedal
-shave unnecessary brackets
-make an aluminum shield for the cooler & radiator possibly
-make an aluminum battery box,other side of bike
-replace radiator hoses with samco? dunno what color
-order 2.25 stainless for the custom exhaust setup

4uyjrp

All the hoses I can route neater AFTER the frame is powdercoated a new color along with the wheels.

Not sure if I should do the oil change now or while the frame is off.Have to take it to Houston Superbikes for the belts & valves sooner or later.

Oh yeah saw a clear see thru cam cover online on a guys 848.I want it too but I cant find it yet.

My other 2 bikes are Ducati's and I wanted to keep it the same.Ever since I got my Panigale I cant see myself buying another make.I love the L twin sound especially on the freeway.

I -could- have got an older model Ducati but sometimes I cant stand the dry clutch sound.I briefly had a 2010 Hypermotard 1100 and sold it within 2 weeks to a friend.I replaced it with my 2013 wet clutch model.Also older Duc's have more maintenance to them while these have 7500 mile intervals.

Plus this bike is gonna be a demo of sorts showing stuff we can do at my work shop and I didn't wanna cheap out.This is just the beginning but this project will have way more fab work when its done.
