Thanks for the compliments everyone! I have many more shots with the snowbanks on both sides, they turned out really well. The first two pics weren't taken by me, but by the previous owner.

Thanks for the compliments on my work too. All of it was done by me except the clear coating of the front fairing and fender.

Very nice!

I have a yellow 2000 748-S, similar to what you started out with.

Very cool mods...

Nice and tasteful mods. The stripe and upper number plate really add to the style. Those stock dumbo mirrors actually look good once painted.

Thanks! I would really like to have no mirrors, I think that looks amazing but I am not sure how much trouble it would get me in with the law.

Bike looks great, nice work. You could get rid of your mirrors and get bar end mirrors, or keep the mirrors and get rid of your front signals with these integrated mirror/signals. They even come in red.

I originally ordered those for my 748 and they are completely back ordered and aren't communicating as to when they'll have more in stock.

So I went the bar end way and it looks great and they're CHEAP:

The trouble with the Ducati integrated turn signal mirrors is they still only show elbows - A better set-up is BMW R1200RS mirrors - about 100mm wider on each side...
