Since it's a replica, I'll simply call it the VeltRAT Pissa'!

Ok, now that I can actually start a thread again, here's the development in pictures of Carl's new track livery. What started out as a 750 with many different bike's body work will, over the next two weeks, become a replica Veltro Pista for his track bike. Paint is sourced, paint mask is being cut starting Monday, panel prep is in progress. I even think I've found a source for the decals....time will tell.

The pictures:

Up next...the AIRBOX!

Nice finish, too bad I'm going to destroy it in order to make it more than it was....

Cost is a relative thing...materials aren't expensive. The decals will be OEM, I hope. The graphics will be hand taped and painted. Pics will go up as progress is made.

Hi Chuck..

Good luck with this project..

With regards to the OEM decals, you might want to contact Scott at http://www.srsigndesign.com/..

I've used him for several of my Ducati decals, and he always does a pukka job..

Here's a few Veltro decals you can use to send Scott use as templates...

I'll send you an email response about that other thing, when I get back home next week..

Cheers
John

Hi John! Thaks for the info! I have a company that lists the tank and fairing decals and, as of Friday, they just haven't come forth with a price or availability. I am having fun with this and, yes Ed, it will be ready for Bub III...actually it will be ready for Carl's next track day in a couple of weeks. (That gives me some time to repair it BEFORE Bubba, after he bins it during the track day...:jsm:) (Just kidding Carl!:smoking:)

Life Size--only FLATTER!!

I dun blow'd up a photo to correct dimensions so that I can measure paint mask and such.

You, too can have your very own Veltro for $6.95 plus shipping!
(If you order before midnight tonight.....)

Har! Actually, I have a few track days in which to bin it before the bubba 3. If we need a cf front fender, I have one.

Man,if you want to send a CF front fender this way, I'll happily add the logo...but, since it is a replica, I don't know how far you want to go. The Red fender is ready for paint. Matte Black with the logo...no cost!

Look, I think it's great that Big Chuck is getting the paint brush out and I'm sure that this will look absolutely amazing. Chuck strikes me as a perfectionist. Really looking forward to the results.
