Track 748R winter project!! PROGRESS UPDATE!!

After rebuilding my damaged 748R last year to immaculate condition, and not daring to take it on track, i wanted another one that i cud get ready just to take on track!! That i wudnt be to upset about if i scratched it or anything more!!
Hence i bought this sorry for itself looking bike off ebay about 2 months ago! Been used on track all its life, but been maintained by sigma and the engine does sound spot on although it will be going to our very own Nelly for a check over and the belts doin before it returns into its frame!!
SO when i took delivery all the body work was only good for the skip, the Ohlins forks dumped there oil all over the drive when it came out the van!! and it just generally looked like a bag of ****, got it all stripped down and this week managed to get the frame and wheels powdercoated and the swingarm filled and painted. Then started putting the frame back together! Just need to save a few quid over xmas so i can get a few more bits and bobs dun and a trip to nellys!!

When you say Ducati red, was that a specific they did, or a guess on their part?

I have a local powder coaters, their red is virtually Ford red/ al la ducati red!
