    Recently have been going through another 748RS that I bought in an estate sale. It was in parts but everything was there. It is a real RS from Ducati Corse and I think it might be the last one they made.

    I need to make a couple of small changes still but I am really pleased with how awesome it goes. Hopefully I can raid enough old spare parts bins from some race teams to tweak the last couple of things I want to tweak.

    I got these photos off my Smugmug account for a different thread, so I might as well add them here. This bike started off as a 1994 BMW R1100RS, and me and a genius mechanic friend got the idea to make it more versatile. It got way out of hand, with many thousands of dollars spent and many man-hours of time invested. Hardly any BMW's get modded, so this is a very unique ride. Still have it, and now I'm finally in a position to do the finishing touches (mostly paint, but it needs a new instrument cluster).
    This is what it originally looked like (Not my bike).

    And here is mine after Brian and I worked on it for a couple of years:

    Mods are; R1100S front fork and bars, R1150R tubular Telelever a-arm, shorter billet Paralever torque arm to match the new suspension, which is from an R1100GS, R1150RS front wheel and ABS ring, K1200RS optional 6" wide rear wheel, R1150RT magnesium valve covers, center stand delete, since it didn't even reach the tarmac anymore, Brian welded up the paddock stand for working on it, lengthened the side stand 4", and added GSXR 750 footpegs, for just the right feel. It's about fifty pounds lighter than stock, and the wheelbase is an inch or so shorter. I'm 6'2"and can ride this bike all day. Handles like a dream, and will unintentionally wheelie now!

    As I mentioned, it needs to be all black, and I need new gauges, but also Ohlins GS suspension, and an aux tank to replace the pillion seat (I plan to make it look like an OEM rear tank, complete with the correct BMW locking lid). With another set of wheels, it should be fine for light off road stuff. It is super tall though, and VERY hard to pick up if you drop it. I have a 35" inseam, so I can keep the seat in the highest position, which keeps my legs relaxed, but not a bike for short guys. :)

    Now that I have the place in Colorado, I'm finally motivated to finish it up.
