1981 Ducati NCR Replica ~ For Sale

Full, ground up restoration and custom build. This bike started life as a 1981 MHR and has been extensively modified to build a high performance NCR Replica. The bodywork was constructed from a mould taken off a 1980 NCR and all bracketry was custom made to suit and fitted with quick release Dzus fasteners. The seat/tank unit is one piece and can be removed in less than 60 seconds and the fairing (which is a completely different shape to a MHR) can be removed in less than 2 minutes. The seat itself clips onto the tank/seat unit and there is a large storage pocket in the tail. The clear strip in the fuel tank is fully functional for determining fuel levels (period correct). The bike will be supplied with a colour matching SS fairing as well as the full fairing.

The engine has been full rebuilt to race spec by Mike Soderland at Gowanloch in Sydney and included increasing the stroke which took the capacity from 860cc to 951cc. This required lifting the barrels 5mm and then resetting the bevel drives. The oil filtration system was modified from partial flow (bevel motors generally only send approx. 20% of oil flow through the filter) to full flow which allowed substantially better filtration and fitment of the oil cooler. The bottom end is Vee Two, pistons are high compression running in standard bores and the heads have been ported and are running Imola spec race cams.

The 2 into 1 exhaust system was custom made by Tranzac (Brisbane) with larger headers to suit the larger diameter exhaust ports and is ceramic coated. New 40mm Delorto carburettors and port matched manifolds were fitted as a part of the rebuild. Tuned length open bell mouth inlets are fitted and K&N pod filters will also be supplied with the sale. The carbs are tuned with the open bell mouths as fitment of either inlets with “bird catcher” mesh or the pod filters has a marked impact on performance. The ignition is controlled by Sachse electronic ignition system and Dyna coils. All of the engine work and tune means that the engine starts easily (often when easing over compression), runs like a watch and has exceptional performance.

Modifications to the frame are relatively modest. The pillion peg hangers were removed and the tubing from this was used to strengthen the frame around the steering head/front down tubes. This required fitting a different rear master cylinder (off a Ducati Monster) and custom made linkages. All brake callipers have been re-built and re-anodized (not just painted) and both front and rear brake lines are braided stainless. The forks are fitted with progressive rate springs, gold valves and a fork brace and the rear suspension is Koni. The tyres are Avon racing AM22 front and AM23 rear, each with approximately 90% tread remaining.

A new wiring harness was fabricated to remove a number of the multi pin connectors (to reduce number of failure points) and to use relays for both low and high beam to reduce current flowing through the switches. All switches were rebuilt or replaced and modern bayonet style fuses are installed on all circuits. An electrical component mounting plate was custom made to fit all components neatly under the seat. The dash is handmade and fitted with new Veglia gauges.

Although the above highlights the major restoration work, all of the small stuff was replaced during the build. This included items such as:

Accelerator cables and Tommaselli throttle
New Veglia gauges, drive cables and speed-o drive
Wheel bearings, steering head bearings and swing arm bushes
Sprockets and chain
Ducati 250 Desmo tail light
Headlight shell and brackets (re-chromed) with new lens (H4 halogen globe)

The completed bike is visually stunning with either the full fairing in race replica format or with the SS fairing fitted to show off the polished, modified motor. This was recognised by it winning its class in the Queensland Laverda Concourse in 2014 and it being the feature bike in the July 2018 edition of the Australian Motorcycle Trader magazine. The total distance travelled since the rebuild is 3,900 kilometers, mostly with the local Ducati owners club. This means there are a couple of stone chips on the fairing. The bike was built for riding (not just a collection piece) and it is worth noting that the only track time the bike has had was for the photo shoot for the magazine article. The bike is in roadworthy condition (had full registration up until August last year).
