It's not a cover I had an extra swing arm and I polished it. The polish came out great. I was afraid that Ducati puts a real rough finish on these swing arms because there castings aren't very good but that isn't the case there wasn't a pit or defect under the black finish. I'm just not 100% sure of the look. What's your thoughts ?

Looks are subjective, but since you're asking for opinions I'm not a fan. I admire you for trying a new approach, its just my personal taste is for a bike to look more cohesive and blend together, not look like its cobbled together with various styles/colors/materials.

But the only opinion that matters is your girls :)

You got that right ! :D

I was going for sort of a tribute to the 250 GP bikes since they killed that class this year. If you haven't seen some of those factory polished alum swing arms on those 2 strokes you should check em out. Also the Aprilia 07 Tuono used a beautiful polished swing arm with red & white paint & blue wheels talk about a lot going on but the bike looks sweet. Anyway thanks for your 2 cents


The cans are Leo Vince I like the shape much better than the Ducati cone shape.

I think it's got potential, and I like you're doing something different.

I like how these parts go together, but have you given any though to seeing if you can polish these?



Then you could get the silver see through belt covers. Hey as long as you're doing the work I've got ideas all day long. lol jk Ohh, I forgot to mention you're going to need a helmet that's polished to go with it. Hey spending other peoples time and money is fun, I'm starting to understand my wife more :D
