Build Thread: Ducati DraXter 90th Anniversary

Hey Guys,

Since Ducati only built 1 of them and never sold them to the public, I went to a custom bike maker to have my dream bike built.
As base my 795 will do just fine as we really only keep the engine, breaks and parts of the frame. Everything else will be custom.

This is what we are going for:



This is the shop owners (half finished) Hypermotard for reference


The build will take around 2 months and I will update this thread on a regular basis if there is enough interest.

It won't be a 1:1 copy of the bike but it gives you an idea of the style I am after. There will be a color change from yellow to neon (lime) green instead of yellow and some other minor things.
Stay tuned!
