my odd/ugly duc race build



Here's an update on my Ducati 900ss ie racebike build.



Ohlins shock from Germany serviced and set up for my weight.



ST2/3 oil cooler, slightly larger volume, and mounted to a custom brakcet.



Scitsu tach, renthal bars, andreani fork cartridge kit.



Carbon front numberplate of unknown origin.



Bimota header and collector, Cone engineering muffler. Speedymoto timing belt "covers", EBC rotor, 999 caliper, and 16mm Brembo master. 1000ss ds rear swingarm.



Custom seat unit.

... nice! ... I like your vision.

What did it take to go to 7/8" handlebars?

Thanks.

EDIT: I also like the single front disc. Few others "approve" of it's use but single front discs have their merits. Especially with today's super duper hyper-bad-ass braking systems going single up front is worth a look. Good on ya! ... thumbs up!

Other than it's appearance/color, what advantage does the 999 front caliper offer over the stock one? They both seem to be 4 pot calipers.

4 individual pads per caliper, vs. 2. In theory it means better pad/disc connection, and less likely to warp the disc.

Haven't been out to the track just yet. Want to get the fuelling set up better before I wring its neck. I have California Cycleworks pod filters on now, but after a chat with Mark Sutton at DucShop I have a velocity stack/foam filter option I want to try as well.
Hoping for August, family commitments in July.
Will keep ya'll posted.

I think you can find them on ebay as well. The 50mm conversion kit is what I got. Wished they had a fatbar option, but no go.

OK first I will agree it's ugly lol, But it's purpose built to race and work well not win a beauty contest, I race Vintage as well in AHRMA I run a 1972 BMW R75/5 in BEARS & Formula 750. I have the bike trimmed down to only what has to be there to make it work like I want it to---The only thing on my race bike that is there that is not needed is a front fender-it's aluminium and weigh's basically nothing. Race bikes are built to function and win races not to look pretty.

Iíve always found beauty in race bikes and race cars. Just the bare essentials to go fast, nothing more. To me, your bike looks great .
