History of the vehicle
I am the
second owner of this cosmetically restored machine. I purchased
it from TT Motors in Berkeley, California in December 1984.
It is an award
winning machine, having received Junior and Senior status
awards, in addition to Best European Entry at Antique Motorcycle
Club of America (AMCA) meets, as recently as June 2012. It was
granted Winner's Circle status at that time, receiving 96
following paragraphs reflect my awareness of strengths vs.
problems in specific systems of the motorcycle.
1. Engine and
Running Gear: The bike has always started immediately and
runs well. The engine cases have never been split. there is no
exhaust smoke and it shifts smoothly.
I obtained a Del Orto rebuild kit in June 2007. it became
evident to me quite quickly, that this would be a complicated
procedure. I elected to seek out the internationally recognized
expertise of Ducati Wizard Steve Allen, to perform this task.
The excellent result justified this decision. New 'Cavis
Benz' fuel lines have just been added.
3. Paint: The
bike has been painted three times during my ownership. February
1985, early 1990's, and May 2012 we redid the tank as there was
a small blemish that had bugged me for years.
The original solo seat leather was worn and split and was
replaced in 1990. The tumbler lock for the solo seat cowling
space/storage area is loose.
Stand: I acquired and installed a 'jiffy' side stand (oem ducati
750) which is pictured in the original parts manual. The bike
has never fallen to the ground and is now more manageable using
the side stand for brief periods of time.
System: The transversal tube, as it is called in the Italian
parts manual, (I would call this the cross-over or equalizer
pipe), is a bit corroded and will need re-plating at some point.
7. Spares: I
seized the opportunity to purchase a set of NOS Conti mufflers,
things of beauty, that are still in their factory boxes.
These are "Sport specific" publications, many with glossies,
road tests, and technical data. They contain laudatory remarks
in praise of this type of motorcycle.
