The fork legs are anodized… the surface is harder and gives them good protection against corrosion and helps cleaning them.Hi Guys,
I have some Showas turning up next week ( thanks to Poolagent...you rock mate) . Someone posted a pic of the forks they had polished....I have searched...but can't find the pic...can someone point me in the right direction please.
The engine cases are powdercoated which saves ducati a lot of money for finishing…Yep...I will leave the forks standard...good call as they are new.
I want to do a bit of polishing...has anyone done any engine cases...I don't recall seeing any...
Just for clarification...this job wasn't done by fred bloggs around the corner It was done professionally by a guy who is endorsed and specialises in custom work for Harley Davidson. All the caps, oil and springs were replaced and forks rebuilt from ground up...with the exception of the dodgey compression adjuster screw which crapped out a few weeks back.
As previously stated...it aint for everyone and was just a happy accident that occured when i dropped them off to the guy. He gave them the 'harley' treatment and not just a quick clean, but then again, i didn't actually specify what i exactly wanted. Well, not unless you call saying 'work your magic' a specific work order
Overall, it actually looks pretty sweet in the flesh...hard to get a good photo that does it justice.
She arrived from Italy today holding this box.....now what am I gunna do ....I want to go and get them fitted....but on the other hand I have never had a Grid GirlHere you are…
