I'm new to this forum.
I have just bought a 2007 Brutale 910S to keep my 2006 F4-1000 with company. The Brutale will be my winter project even though the bike looks very nice now in orange.
I have always fancied the America replica paintjob, and my plan is to have that paintjob on my Brutale by spring 2011. I have already bought a tank, both side panels, riders seat, and passenger seat second hand on ebay. I’m also looking for a front fender. The reason why I have bought these parts is that I don’t want to destroy the paint on the original parts.

I need some advice on decals and seat covers. It seems easy to find the MV Agusta logos on each side of the tank. But I haven’t found the Brutale decal in front of the filler cap on the tank. I have also problem finding the Brutale decal on the rear of each side panel. The same goes for the “valvole radiali” on the front of each side panels. This is not that important as it is barely visible. Can anyone give me a hint of where I can find these decals?

The America replica has a red Alcantara rider’s seat cover, and a blue Alcantara passenger seat cover. Does anyone know where I can buy material so that I can have my second hand seats redone in Alcantara? There are quite a few furniture factories in my area, so I will definitely find someone who can do the job as soon as I have the material. If I’m not able to find Alcantara, maybe I will settle for traditional seat cover material, but it will have to be in red and blue. Anyone know where I can get this?

Ade (adecritten on this Forum) will look after you in the seat/alcantera department.

As for stickers - I think Evolution and Vesuvio (site sponsors) have all the decals you need?

Give that a go...and enjoy the winter project! (remember pics as you go for us all to enjoy)

Photo wanted

Anybody got a decent close up photograph, of the decal on the tank, for the America red-white-blue model?

I'd really love to see a photo.

Thans,
Dick

My bad! I should have been more specific. Thank you for this photo.

The photo I failed to clearly identify is the photo on the front center top of the tank. I believe it shows a series of gold stars. I would really appreciate a clear photo of that decal on an America Brutale.

It means so much to me, that if someone will post the picture, I will buy them a beer and even drink it!

Thanks in advance!
Dick

And the winner is........esq'z me

esq'z me: your timing could not have been better.

After a great day in the shop, I was sitting in the kitchen enjoying a great beer and reading the Brutale list. Your timely answer and link to to the desired photo of the decal, wins you a beer.

Just to show you what kinda guy I am. I think I'll get up and get one for you right now............ Ah! .. .. Yep, that goes down real good!

Should you ever make it to Vashon Island near Seattle, I'll drink another one......for you, and with you.

Thanks for the photo,
Dick

Thanks for the advice!
Everything is now ordered and I’m looking forward to see how this project turns out. I will post some pictures when it is finished.

The Alcantara seats are here!

I have now received the seats from Ade Critten/the seat Factory, and I think they look fantastic! Customer service was excellent, and I can highly recommend dealing with Ade Critten and the Seat Factory. Thanks again for the excellent advice !

I have not installed the seats on the bike yet because it still has the original orange colour, but I will post pictures later when the paintjob is finished.
Here is how the seats look:

The second I saw that pic I thought Vashon Island. Crazy! My cousin has a place on the north side. Great place Vashon is.
