1995 Ducati 900SS CR/Supermono Conversion
I've just partially finished my 1995 Ducati 900SS CR/Supermono Conversion and entered it in our local motorcycle show here in Anchorage, Alaska. I finished second in the People's Choice Award to a radical custom Harley-oh well, no accounting for taste, especially in Sarah Palin's ex-state!!
I will be posting the multitude of parts I have for sale from the bike in the next few days.
The following is a description of the project along with the distributors and manufacturers I used:
1995 Ducati 900SS CR/
In 1993 Ducati began production of the Supermono motorcycle that continued for 3 years and a total of 67 bikes. These motorcycles were only used for racing in the Sound of Singles, Supermono Class & Isle of Mann TT where the only rules were that the bike had one cylinder and that is it. Ducati promised to make a street version of the Supermono for years, but Ducatisti are still waiting for that to occur. Recently, an Englishmen decided to create a street version of the Supermono and it sells for approximately $52,000. Recently, I checked on an original Supermono and the asking price was $118,000. Since I always wanted this bike I decided to create my own version. Starting with a 1995 Ducati 900SS CR purchased in December, I began the conversion to the Supermono in January of this year. Modifications to the bike are as follows and supersede the original list that was submitted with the entry form.
