I had posted some pictures of the exhaust in the "Red Neck Exhaust" post, but here are all the pictures, start to now

It's a 916 frame, 848 subframe, S4RS swingarm, 999 rear suspension, 748 tank, and a monster rear cowl, all being powered by an 853 engine. Had to fabricate a few pieces, the rear suspension rocker, and then subframe "tray". The headlight bucket is off a Benelli.

All of the parts went up to Miles Hubert of MotoFab up in Bristol, VT for paint and powder. 30329_1440487093573_1274929198_1231829_2314367_n.jpg

The lighting is a little off, but the silver of the paint and the powder are an exact match. And the gray is the same as the engine

And now the assembly begins. In an effort to keep everything as clean as possible, the battery got moved to under the rear cowl.

Now for the exhaust. Russell Daly of Specialties Unlimited made the exhaust for us. He has made some very nice hotrods, you can see a few here.

Okay, last set of pictures. Hope you have enjoyed them all so far.

For the headlight, we used a Hella Micro SD HID light, shoehorned into that benelli bucket. Machined a custom cap for it to make it look nice. IMG_0530_2.jpg

The tach is a MotoGadget Motoscope. motoscope classic

Cool! Who did you get to cover your seat? I have a neoprene seat I need to get recovered since Ducati doesn't make it anymore.

I just bought some leather from a local shop and went to a local upholsterer and asked her to do it

Very nice!

Did you by any chance weigh and measure the S4RS s/arm vs. the 916? Heavier, lighter? And is it longer or the same length? Steel or aluminum?

thx!

No idea on the weights or material off hand. Just a stock S4 swingarm. Where it attaches to the frame is narrower then then the 916 swingarm, so it's not a simple swap out. It also gets in the way of the stock 916 exhaust and suspension
