Ducati Glasgow help make a very special 848

As reported in this weeks MCN & here:

http://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/...w-ar78591.html

"Ducati Glasgow, a Ducati dealer from the United Kingdom has come up with a tricked out 848 model that shows the unbelievably exotic lines characterizing the 2009 model year. We’re not talking about a limited edition series, but about a one-of-a-kind motorcycle ordered by a very demanding customer that was willing to pay the 28,000 price.


The list of goodies includes Ohlins forks from a 1098R, complete with a 25mm TTX fork kit and an Ohlins TTX rear shock, also from a 1098R, but what definitely sets this bike apart from the standard 10,616 Ducati 848 is the Ducati Glasgow paintjob. Is this one sweet ride or what?"

I guess the BST Carbon Fibre Wheels & Trick exhaust were not even worth mentioning

Paint job looks MUCH better than the photo's in the newspaper:

Mood: excited about the changes made to averysmotorcycles.co.uk that are coming up
yep the paintjob looks much better on here than in MCN,guess the cheap chinese paper they use cant cope with such a glossy bike,
oh and what a stunning bike it is,how lucky is the owner. every morning when he opens the garage he sees the 848r parked alongside a 1098r bayliss and a sedici
