Here is a site to buy the panners and crash bars and more. Just look under products at the upper right top of the page.

Dewy, Know problem, here ya go:

Sign Chief Inc.
311 East Bidwell
Folsom Ca, 95630

Belinda 916.984.0394

They do have a email address but I don't have it.

They are a little spendy but you will get a very good art work.
When you call tell them I told you about them. They will be able to go back in there PC and bring up the decals. They only have the decals for the e900 though. They had to have my bike there to measure and cut everything as far as striping goes. All the lettering and Lucky decals where no problem. If you decide to use these folks I would be glad to run my bike over so Belinda can re- measure everything for you. There only about 10 min's away.

You can get her email address and send pic's of your bike and any decals you want cut also..........they are very good folk's.

Are you sure it's female? Have you checked??

I do agree, even if it's in drag, it is gorgeous!!!

Enjoy.

P.S. What's the pipe on her/him?

Nearly a new E900 man

This story begins nearly 18 years ago when my buddy Fred found his dream bike, a '94E900. We lived in Indiana, USA then and the bike was about a day's ride away in Maryland. We drove out there in his car and took turns riding the bike on the way home. I had one of my worst scares on that trip while passing a truck on the highway when the truck shredded a re-tread and huge chunks of semi truck tire tread are being fired at me while riding 75 MPH. I don't know who was scared worse though, me riding through the hail of truck tread, or Fred having to watch it in his rear view mirror! We all came through unscathed.

At the end of that trip I was in love with the bike too and made him promise if he ever wanted to sell it, I'd have right of first refusal. I was still loving my V65 Sabre at the time. I rode that Sabre for another 15 years before switching to a used DL1000 V-strom while Fred held onto the Duc, not riding it much, but enjoying it when he did. Fred finally decided to move the Duc along so the V-strom is gone now to make room and in a couple weeks my new passion will arrive.

I can't wait!

All the best,

-Dave G.

Congrat's, But it least you where on a good v4. I have been restoring the Sabra's, Interceptors and Magna V4's for years now. In my day the 83 V65 Magna was the bike to own. They still hold up to the new bikes very well. I do like my 94 e900 0ver the KLR........but thats just apples and oranges.

True Kurt, true. Rode that bike 20 years and 60k miles. Rode a lot of bikes while I had it, but none turned me on like that one. 'Strom was comfy, but not a heart-starter like the old V4 was. I think the pachaderm will please.

All the best,

I received a few new parts for my 750 Elefant: Slightly longer Wilbers rear shock and light Ducati exhaust.

Absolutely beautiful! Thanks for the pic. Have there been any documentary books written on the various Cagiva rally bikes and their homologation brethren?

I don't know about books written on this topic, but here is my favourite summary on a web site:
