Fox in the henhouse

Hello everyone,

Very pleased to meet you all and looking forward to discussions to follow.

Being a Ducati owner for a long time I have finally had the opportunity to bring a 2004 RC51 into the stable. Being a big Hayden, superbike and twin fan I have actually been in love with these bikes for a long time! My '04 is a bit of a mess, a beautiful disaster if you will but with time, love and a little forum support I'm planning a full restoration. That thread to follow in the next few days.

Thank you all for the knowledge and experience that is posted here and looking forward to being part of the RC community.

Chris

Welcome to the RC51 community and congrats on the 04.
Parts are getting hard to find, don't delay your 'parts needed' list for the OEM stuff.

Thank you for the welcome!
Unfortunately I picked up the bike two days before heading out of the country for an 'undefined' period of time. I took a bunch of pictures before I left and will post them in a restoration thread. My hope is that with enough trained eyes on the forum I can build a list of parts needed to start the work. That way I can start collecting a pile of parts to have waiting for me when I get home! Bike is running well just need a lot of cosmetic help.
