I thought you guys might want to see what it looks like when you add somewhere in the neighborhood of $80,000-$100,000 into your 1098R. We'll probably still add some bits as we build and we haven't decided on changing the bodywork yet (among other things)

I'll post up a complete list of parts once we finish - for now just enjoy the images as we build.

If you see something you like let me know - all easily attainable.

Crank and titanium rods waiting to be sent out with the new pistons for balancing.


Cases apart.


Motocorse suspension link.




NCR Titanium frame.


NCR titanium clip-ons, billet triples, random titanium hardware.


Frame being assembled.














Ohlins RT forks.








Carbon fiber framed bike in the background watching the Ti framed bike being built... :dance

Corse cam kit going in.






NCR Titanium frame #3 and the only 1098R titanium subframe in existence.


RAM magnesium swingarm and magnesium hub being test fit. Cases in for a test fit too.








This is the real deal master cylinder - same that Rossi uses... super sweet if you've got $2700 to burn!



All bolts, axles, etc... titanium


Titanium clip-on


Titanium bolts holding the titanium frame and rear subframe together.


Titanium crossbar for tank mount.


Titanium hardware and front axle. The original swingarm pivot is pictured here - it was replaced with a titanium bit.


BST carbon wheels, Brembo HP rotors, Ohlins RT forks. Can't wait to show you the calipers!


Titanium rotor bolts on the Brembo HP rotors.


Front end coming together.

Fantastico

Out of words to describe, how insane and beautiful the built is!
Desmo, keep up the good work. Any idea how many more horsies you're going to get from that engine?

I'm following this thread. Please post as many pix as you can.

Regards

The welds on the NCR frame are the work of an artist. Italian craftsmanship at its finest. Beautiful!

Ducati's use the motor as a stressed member. The frame is mainly a support for the headstock and the airbox. It doesn't have to be super strong. Light weight is a major plus though.

I'm almost speechless, all I can muster is that it's nice to see someone making reality out of my lottery fantasies. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wait, I'm in med school and I still think this thing is amazing. I can't begin to fathom what it takes to build something like this...but I will enjoy watching and getting some ideas.
