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/
Supermono Conversion

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.

samcombs: Great project! But is it a "true" supermono -- did you convert the engine to run on one cylinder?

The bike looks so uber-clean, nice job on it. In your last picture (rear view), is the exhaust actually uneven, or is it just the angle of the picture?

Very nice, but you should have called it a "Superduo" (too many cylinders). Amen to the Sarah Palin comment !

Ducati Supermono

I thought about calling it the Superdue/Desmodue, but the Supermono because it is a single seater and Desmoquattro because after all, it does have four valves even though there are two per cylinder!

As for the exhaust pipes being uneven, that is a bit of an optical illusion, but I do need to tighten everything up and even them out a bit more since it was just finished hours before the bike show.

Thanks for all the compliments--it was a lot of work!!

The weather is nice, almost hot enough to use plain old leather gloves.
So where are those pics?
