Brutale Cafe Racer

Deeply inspired by my friend's Panigale cafe racer last week, I dusted the cobwebs off my Brutale 750 frame and will start using some of the parts I have laying around. All I really know right now are the basic colors I want to follow. I like the shape of the Brutale 800 headlight but might use the F4 headlight I have. I have a front Showa/Nissin setup with trees, axle, clip ons, etc. Star wheels, subframe, swingarm, tank/airbox, headers. All I need is engine/elec/ecu, for which I have lots of time and options.



I initially decided powdercoating the frame red but they came in that color, and I'd like to be a little different, but staying in the red/silver/gold Oro colors. Any suggestions? PPG Alu grey Sebino 35204189

That was a 999, definitely not a Panigale

You're absolutely correct. A slip of the wrist, and mind at this age.

For the same reason as the carbon rotors I guess.
