    Secrets Out.....NEW BIKE

    Well, back on January 18th I picked up a stock 2016 Ducati Scrambler Icon that I intend to convert to a Café Racer. I did not want the stock café because they are too expensive and I honestly think they could look better. So far, I have just deleted the rear fender, front signals, and put clip ons on it with a different Gauge holder. Still working on the seat option, I am first trying to make a fiberglass tail that will work as a tail bag/Trunk as well. If that doesn't work the way I hope, I will be putting on a shorter straight café/bobber style seat. Here are some pics of what it was and is now, can't wait to finish it but I still have a ways to go. At least it is rideable as is.

    SUSPENSION WILL NEED SOME WORK BEFORE A DRAGON TRIP ON THIS THING.

    Things to come:
    Seat
    Vinyl Wrap
    New tires
    Possible Suspension upgrade

    Gotta decide if it’ll be around long enough to justify the suspension upgrade.

    Not that bad actually, I think the reach is a little further than my R1 though. I haven't hit highways yet, mainly just rode it around town.
