Dear colleages,
This is Josep from Barcelona.
I have been a "Ducatisti" since a boy when I saw the F1/TT1 win the Montjuich 24H race ahead of much more powerful japanese competition. I considered a 916/996/998 however honestly speaking I am not a talented rider so I thought the sport touring PASO (with wonderful looks) would suit me better. And amongst all PASO's ... the last one had to be the best one, so finally I bought my red 907ie one year ago being my first ever DUCATI. It had 53000 km.
During this year I have found help and comfort in your forum as unfortunatelly my bike gathered some of the usual flaws of their breed: dead battery, oil leaky cyclinder heads, a butchered swingarm, cracked sprocket carrier and failed sprag clutch (all of them solved) and false neutral between 5th and 6th (still persisting ... :,( ).
Today I would like to bring some information in return: I wrote a small instructable on how to replicate turning lamp lens. I hope you will find it interesting:

I also own other bikes: Montesa Impala '65, Yamaha TZR250 3MA '91, Honda CB500 '99, Yamaha XT600 '88, Yamaha SRX6 '86 and I am in the (never ending) project to build a "TT1 replica" and a "DUCATI 350cc single" for track days.
