I love this forum where you can see CB750 and XS650 cafe and bobber builds and then find a gem like this. Keep up the good work - looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Cheers mate, yeah agreed, lots of diversity here!


I'll hopefully be hanging the gate on the fence today as there's actually some blue sky around finally, but then I'm flying out on hol's tomorrow so the paling's will have to wait 'til I get back next week.


Hopefully by the time I go back to work on the 18th I'll have a whole new fence with the old one torn down and I can start levelling the ground for the shed base.


I'm itching like mad to get this restoration underway again!

Ok, just need to move the paling's from the old fence and it's done!





Frustrating that it's so close, but flying out to Melbourne tomorrow for a few nights... I'm still hopeful I can start levelling ground by the time I go back to work... but we'll see...

Awesome Jeff! 1952... that's a new one  :P  I want those forks though... although those would be 26" wheels... too small... bugger!


As for where I'm at, got the fence done:





Started clearing 7.5 square metres of river rock:





And yesterday started levelling but got distracted by a disused water pipe that goes nowhere:





Should be ready for the form work for the concrete soon then once I've got that sorted I should be able to finalise the shed plans and get some concrete laid...

Sorry guys, still pretty much stalled on this one for the time being.


If I get time to get something done towards the shed, it's raining. If it's sunny, I'm at work or out somewhere... and it's not helping I've had to get the 450 repaired after the rear ender a couple of months ago as well...


If I can just get the concrete laid for the shed then I can really get moving on it and get back into this project at last.


I tell ya' I can't wait!

Just read this from the start, Cool stuff mate. Love the old rego sticker.

How goes the shed building now the rain has been holding off?

Hey mate, unfortunately gone not much further... got some of the boxing in for the shed base but that's it.


We just discussed finishing up so we can get the concrete done when I got pinged for going through a yellow light, so now the finances are a bit tight... can't win!


I take it you're in Brissie somewhere?

hello,
I'm laurens. I'm just new.
I'm working on my Ducati cucciolo for the moment.
but I have a problem with the flywheel.
which flywheel puller do I need to disassemble it?
thanks, laurens.

Hi Laurens, I used an adjustable angle grinder tool to remove the little cover in the centre of the flywheel. Be careful as it's a left hand thread from memory.






My motor came with the flywheel puller, so I used that with a plumbing tool to remove the flywheel (I don't recall why I had the vice grips on there):





If you're not on there already, join the Yahoo group for "Ducati Pushrod Singles". You will find lots of information to help you out over there.


Do you have a build thread here?


I still haven't made any further progress yet...

No progress?!

Did the Ducati find its way into the same shed as Hillsy's GS450?

:D

Hahaha yeah I think so Rich... must have his here somewhere in my non-existent shed I reckon...


We were all set to buy gravel/concrete to get the foundation done when I got done for going through a yellow light  >:(  That was more expensive than the concrete so delayed again... and we've had perfect weather to lay it too!
