is my 1978 Ducati 900ss. This bike has been a labor of love for
me. It is a ground up restoration of a low mileage bike with
every part either refurbished or replaced with NOS. a partial
list of what was done is as follows:
engine rebuild by Guy Martin. Guy is one of the best in the
world working on bevel twins. The engine work alone was 8500.00.
The motor has 3500 miles on it since this was done. Guy did the
full boat on the motor including special crank treatment, MBP
collets, head work, etc.
work done by Rich Labrechts. Rich is also tops in the restoration business
and his work is featured in many collections and museums.
3.Fork rebuild with new fork tubes by Bevel Heaven
4.Rebuilt carbs, also by Bevel Heaven
5.NOS wiring harness.
6.FPS 4 bolt wheels. Original Speedlines included.
7.Calipers and master cylinders rebuilt.
8.New chain (high dollar x ring) and sprockets.
9.Frame has been powder coated.
1 Two exhaust systems come with the bike –
original Contis shown (they look good from a few feet away, but are not
perfect) and a two into one Conti system.
11 New swing arm bushes.
Items that are not
stock, but added to increase reliability include:
1.Blade style fuse block – original included and
no new holes drilled to mount the replacement.
2.Ignition relay (Matchbox brand unit which is
very slick) to take the load off the original switch gear.
3.Later (1979 or 1980) NOS left hand
headlight/turn signal control which is a Nippon Denso unit and much more
reliable then the early part.
4.Braided steel brake lines.
5.LED dash lights
6.Stainless fasteners throughout
The bike was built as a
rider and does so wonderfully. Paintwork is still very nice even though it
was done several years ago. There is a small area around the gas cap where
the paint has lifted do to the new fuel, but is not noticeable when the cap
is closed. In short, this was a no expense spared restoration that I never
intended to sell, but sometimes life throws you curve balls, so it needs a
