June 2021 and I have been mulling over doing another special, rather than a Restoration, which I did last time with an early Monster 900 . I have been riding around the last project I built, the Multistrada with the FCR carbs on it, which goes really well! My favourite bike to ride! One of the problems with it though is the single seat, my wife likes to come out on pillion sometimes… So I decided to build a scrambler/flat track/adventure type bike, with a dual seat on.

I looked around for another 1000 DS Multistrada and this red one turned up at the right price. These are cheap to buy as many are suffering leaking and bubbling tanks, and faded LCD screens. I am still formulating ideas at the moment, but I have made a bit of a start so I have stripped it of all the parts I wont use so I can sell these on.

but below is a rough mock up with a borrowed seat. Also a picture of the last 4 specials I have built over the last few years. This will be a slow build as I want to enjoy the summer!

I like the blocks holding the seat up. Gives literal meaning to the term "wooden brakes". Wink

Remember kids, bikes aren't like lego. You can't easily take a part from one bike and then fit it to another.

I actually think it looks great. I'm one of the people who really liked the MH900e and I think this might even be an improvement...
