    Default Ducati 851 build from scratch

    After falling in love with the Ducati 851/888 model, I decided to build my own from scratch. I started buying an Ducati 851 strada frame from 1990 to begin with. After that all the other parts followed. I got the frame sand blasted and powdercoated to make it look as new.

    Here are some of the parts that I have so far. Not all parts that I collected are genuine Ducati 851/888 parts, such as the swingarm...

    That is almost a rolling chassis. You are on the right place to get the right parts. Just put an ad in the for sale section.

    From what I can see in your picture, I think you may have an early Monster swing arm (no vertical tabs for the 888 rear fender) so you may have to use a Monster rear fender.

    Yes, from the original shape Monster 900 with double sided swing arm, but not the 93 or 94 Monster as they had the vertical tab fitting, same as the 851 and 888.

    This is indeed an monster 900 frame. I believe it is from an M900 IE.
