Well, as "luck?" Would have it, I am out of town working with lots of time in airplanes, airports, and hotels, so I am starting the write up on my Project Save the Bastard Paso. In this previous thread Thoughts on a possible project Ducati?
I asked for advice on whether I should undertake this sad old Ducati Paso offered to me. I was given plenty of wise advice instructing me to run away very fast, or burn it, thanks chuckracer!
Lord knows I do not "NEED" this project. But the more I looked at it in the garage, the cooler it started to look, (to me anyway). That and I have the coolest woman who indulges my passions and stupidity. So I pulled the trigger and picked up Il Paso. I have been working on it for some months now, in between redoing the motor in the Multi
. So I am now posting up this little build project for the dust bunnies here in the Paso sub forum.
I realize she will never be restored, too much is missing (so purist avert your eyes). I am trying to bring it back into good condition, as a rider, when the wife or I want to have a go on something a little different. (Besides, it fits her pretty well too). Since I started writing this she now picked up a yellow monster today…apparently the important part is it’s yellow…sheez!
I also do not want to invest a fortune in what will never be worth much, but hopefully be a fun bike from time to time, and most important, a little different from everything else. Damnit this is taking forever to figure out how to resize and embed photos... At least I'm learning something new, eventhough 3rd graders can do it in their sleep ....lil Bastards
