Do you know where the fairing came from. Ducati TTF1?
I need one to replace the one lost during the theft, burning and drowning of my TT2 and yours looks just like my original one.

Mike, the bike looks really nice. The only question I have is, are you sure the rear shocks are the right length? It looks right on the paddock stand, but down in the arse off the stand, and will be further down with your arse in the seat. Maybe that's why you've got exhaust clearance issues
 Just saying.
The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

I tend to agree with Chrisk - unladen, on the stand, the swingarm is very flat.
Laden - ie with a rider aboard - there should be some swingarm droop.
I mean by this that the pivot end should be 30 - 50mm higher than the axle.
The actual amount depends on how well - or badly - the bike weight transfers...
