complete replcement carbon fairings? Or carbon-wrapped? Must of cost a pretty penny, but looks utterly stunning!
Might as well do the tank as well. Or use a leather cover for most of, and the exposed parts, lay on real carbon fiber. I think 3M does real carbon film (not fake stuff) that can be stuck on like a sticker.
I sold off the Busa chassis; I don't have time to work on it now, couldn't find a good working engine to rebuild, and although I generally never thought much of literbikes (due to being such a utterly typical bike choice), becoming a rabid Rossi fan, watching MotoGP online (I've seen every race 2~3 times, analyzing the riding styles and techniques) and the big-bang firing order of the new R1 hits something very visceral in my gut. I'd also consider a 1098R - big twin, big torque, also unique grumbling exhaust note. But the ****ing things are NOT cheap!! Ducati Korea wants something like $65,000 - the Desmosedici RR cost $80K in the States. Sorry, can't justify that kind of outlay when faster is available at far less cost. Much the logic behind why I drive a Skyline instead of a Lamborghini I guess.
But it's said that every serious biker must, once in their lifetime, experience the insane torque of a hyperbike. I still have a box containing Busa parts - frame sliders, the front lowering kit, rear lowering links, Yoshimura tri-oval slip-ons (I like the look of dual carbon triangular silencers on the Hayabusa). So someday....
And when I do, that all-carbon look is pure fetish!
