Firstly, the frame needed to be modified so that a choice of dual and single seats could be used as desired. And... er... in our enthusiasm we forgot to photograph this bit. Sorry about that.
Onto the part where we actually did remember to take photos. A CNC machined 'reversed' rear cylinder head was bought from Germany. It was fitted so that the rear head could run it's exhaust forward and have the carburetter behind in the same manner that the bevels and the early belt motors had done.

|If you zoom right in you can see the manifold that we fabricated for the Ducati. It's pretty unassuming, but surprisingly tricky to do.|
It doens't look like much but there's quite a bit of work in there - as often is the case with the best work that you can do on a motorcycle. We absolutely loved working on this very special bike. I like to think that we would have done Bob Martin proud.
