Talking Rebuilding my 748RS

Story so far:

My 748RS did a big end at Gaudix in Feb 2008.

The bike - minus engine - was shipped to Aus in June 2008.

I had the engine rebuilt with extras in Summer 2008, shipped to Aus in October 2008.

So 12 months later, I have now just got around to putting it all together.

I have two boxes of bits, a manual, no idea what I am doing (never done it before) and over the next four days of holidays plan to put it all together!

What's the worst that could happen?

I shall post some pics, and maybe ask some questions as I go.

Looking forward to it!

Its great fun Chris, done it with my first 620.

Its a great learning curve building the bike and you only have yourself to blame if things like the starter dont work, lol.

Talking End of day 1 Results with photos....

Starting from here:












Extra points for guessing the car in mid restoration....


End of day 1:














Problems:

New crankcases - engine mounting bolts dont fit, had to drill them out to 12mm, pain in the arse!

Heavy engines!! FFS!

Missing box of bolts....???? 18 months ago I put them somewhere? In one of 135 boxes. Damn it! I will have a shopping list for Adelaide Ducati tommorow.

But, all good!

It will rise again....
