Great colour match on the fender and mirrors.

Liking the rimtape also. Where did you get it from?

Also, which bar ends did you go with?

Iím not overly happy with the paint quality. There are several heavy areas with visible runs. Also the rough surface is still visible in some areas on the front fender. But what can I say? My wife did this as Christmas present. I do much prefer the looks of the mirrors painted and the shop did do a good job to match the colour.

The rim tape came from my Ducati dealer. Itís that reflective roll on stuff from Keiti. It looks OK from 10 feet but itís anything but uniform when you get up close because I did a really poor job. The bar ends were a door prize from a USDesmo Ducks Fly South Rally many years ago. Jim probably got them from Ducati Charlotte or another area dealer. They probably werenít that expensive and have been just sitting in my tool box waiting for a red bike to come along.
