re; "CR" designator ....

While most people choose to believe the CR designation stands for Cafe Racer I'm thinking it's probably more likely that Ducati chose the CR designation to denote the fact that the US only market CR model bike came equipped with short "regular fairings" as opposed to the full fairings that were used on the other 900SS models ...
Well ain't that a bitch!

Yes the ohlins looks to be a monster, look for a stamping starting as DU**** near one of the end eyes. I can check a spec sheet to see if it is worth converting to a SS shock. Often times it is not cost effective as you can find a SS shock but at the price you paid it might be cheaper to convert what you have.

That said the sachs on the bike is a good shock and if (as mentioned before) you simply spring both ends with proper straight rate springs it will work well enough for most. the real issue with the Marzzocci forks was the chrome used to wear through in the thrust area too often.

I also have to say nice job I would be happy to own that CR and it is already GP shift so ready to go! fresh tires,belts and brake lines and off to the twisties/track it would go.

The exhaust looks like a Giacamoto which is period correct, the Ducati performance of the day. Somewhere around here I have one of their catalogs if I trip over it I will take a peek. The GPR does not look right to me either ( just me) but I might change my mind if it were gloss black like some of the early megaphones were. I would think them loud given little room for packing in those cans.

Iffy.
D&D were period correct so no worries running one they were sadly not the best quality, often mild steel vs stainless pipes so rusty . Also they were often somehow among the loudest pipes even though the DID have plenty of volume for packing.

yes, besides D&D's questionable quality, there's something just flat Wrong about the D&D's Texas flag waving on the cans of a very stylin Italian machine.

... it came with these in a box.

Lots of soot ... it was running rich for whatever reasons. The stingers on the bike have heavy soot deposits as well.

Meh .. everwhat .. I'll get it running properly eventually.

Not questioning Ducvet, he's probably right with Giacamoto, i was thinking Omrae but the tips don't quite look right. I do know they're definitely not Termis, and if it were me, i'd gut the std pipes and install those if they're pristine, the whole bike looks stock and very nice, the std pipes don't look bad at all and if they're gutted they sound sweet as well.

Nice find mate, the 1/2 fairing bikes are scarce here and command good money, if your Mikuni CV's are gummed up with green growth you may have trouble salvaging them, i'd bin them and go with some FCR39's that's money well spent, good HP increase too.

... them stock stingers are heavy as manhole covers. I'm still looking into those DEEPTONE GPR stingers ... 1.5kg each ... and have removable "DB killers". I may elect to go with something else, all said a done. It's all about research at this time.



And thankies for the encouragement .... every time I go out in my shop to see the bike my heart races ...

HOT DAYUM WHAT A MACHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
