Many many years ago I got my 907ie , red with Bologna Registration mark, from a chap in Bologna who had it slightly modified.

Basically he had a small accident and while repainting it, he decided to change the wheels from white to metallic grey.

I kept the bike like that for some time , then the paint stated to blister and I though it was time for a new set of wheels.

Got one set in good condition, sandblasted and powdercoated in white, new bearings and a couple of hours to do the change.

In rthe meantime I also got a set of Exhausts in better condition than mine (I had the all black version)

and ...voila!!

Looks great. Just the front brake rotors to sort out...

Trying to find original silencers and air box inlet for my 93 907

I see your poiunt about the rotors, unfortunately Discacciati makes them in Red only (not sure if he ever changed to other options )

I still have the originals which were dreadful, not a nice braking and quite unbalanced; these are proper cast-iron rotors and are excellent.

Maybe one day I will get them sandblasted and reanodized in gold...

I did check and the 300mm (like mine) are not really easy to find in the old brembo Gold "pattern", there are a couple of companies that make them but are no where near the originals so there is no point in changing the Discacciatis I have on now which are great performers.
