Again first all parts collected, some painted into the right color.

Eventually all these parts with 35 bolts secured.
As the right side now looks with part of the oil filter and on the inside of the two cylinder heads the intakes on which the fuel injection system will soon be installed:

And the left side:

The dynamo is also in place, with its decal, applied to thickened alu-foil from the Hardware-kit :

I mentioned that I had bought the Hardware Set from Paul Koo.
Here is a print-screen of 1 of the pages as Paul has documented the application of the extras. His manual consists of 71 pages with on an additional DVD a lot of extra info and pictures of the original.

Pocher itself is a kit that can be put together properly and neatly in accordance with the manual. But with Paul's additions, you'll have a lot more happy building time. That's really fine-tuning.

Hi Peter- thanks for putting such detailed explanation’s of your progress on- most inspiring.

I’m waiting to start the final edition panigale (once I’ve finished my current build) and so I’ve been keenly looking through your posts.

I too have bought Paul Koos additional pack but was curios as to how you managed both Paul’s guide and the pocher manual? There seems to be so much detail flying around between the two..

Great work anyway and I’ll be using this feed to help also!

Keep up the good work.

Hi James. Thanks for visiting this build-log. Nice to read you have the ‘final’ to start.
About this: “I too have bought Paul Koos additional pack but was curios as to how you managed both Paul’s guide and the pocher manual?
I always read a few chapters ahead, constantly comparing the two manuals. In his manual Paul refers very neatly and clearly to the chapters of Pocher. Once you get the logic, it comes naturally. Good luck and hope you can start soon with the build.
Regards, Peter

I had used cutoff sections of sprue to fill in those unsightly holes in the 12 pc exhaust. The exhaust pipes were the biggest disappointment in this kit. But I needed a solution.... and all that glue and putty weren't an option.

Indeed, Mark. The exhaust with the big screw holes is the minor part of the kit. But yours look very nice!

Mark- nice tip regarding the sprues to fill the holes. I’ll be using that one! Out of curiosity- have you decided on what make of paint and colour you’ll be using to finish the exhaust pipes?

for the exhaust I used an antique bronze.maybe its not exactly what real titanium pipes would look like but I liked the color and then used bare metal foil on the joints. I made a stand to hold this thing up while I worked on it because I didn't want it laying on its side. Ill put the tires and wheels on last.

A nice painted exhaust, Mark. And a clever idea, that clamp. I had such a clamp to transport my previous MTB in my car, but never had the idea for using it during my build of the Duc.

Notice how i've painted the shock seals at the bottom of the fork tube.Most every part is clear coated or resprayed.
Mark, No offense, but you shouldn’t be starting a build log of your model inside of someone else’s build log. It is best if you start your own build log.

Click on the thread title and enter the title of your log. Then start your first post in the message area. Then click post thread…boom…you have started your own build log!
I promise Peter will see it and follow and answer any questions. He’s a great guy who is always willing to help. ;)
