Cool Got my 749 :) Pics Almost ready to ride and some Ducati porn !

Hey guys,
Just want to start with thanking all of you who helped with picking out the bike, who answered my questions, and for all the useful info on the forum.
Bought my 749 2005 biposto. Brought her home last weekend and immediately started stripping her down.
The bike has a full termi system, ohlens shock, open clutch cover, pazzo levers.. and I believe thats it lol

Bike had problems getting into neurtal and had no rear brake, a quick bleed of clutch and brake fixed both problems. Cleaned and tightened the slave clutch so no more leaks and changed up the oil and coolant. Cant wait to get the fairings back on.

Here are some pics, should be done with her by the weekend.

I've had other bikes before, but a Duc was my dream for a long time hence the excitement.

05-06 749/999s had them too. Nothing that an aftermarket screen can't cure.

Yeah agreed... I wonder if dying on a motorcycle qualifies for a payout from the accidental death insurance policy??
