ducati trackbike project [the peaky blinder]

don't need a speedo on a trackbike so why do you need a speedo drive? weighs more than a battleship anchor, consigned to the bin and a replacement spacer turned up instead, [when i say 'turned up' i don't mean the postman knocked on the door and said 'sign here mate'] scored a forty-quid 'wavy' rear disc feom the bike show for forty quid, not really a fan of them but at that price? oh yeah, spunked my dinner money on a couple of titanium shock mounting bolts, [sixteen english pounds for the pair, or 'the brace' if we are being really posh] if you missed it, i'm planning to ride this thing at the classic tt next year, not racing but a closed-lap of the tt circuit, the last thing i need is the rear fucking shock mounting bolts shearing off ,hence the expense, beat me up..............

  1. It's all so shiny!!! The bolts are up to it, but what about the shock mount itself?
