1994 900SS CR, 2002 998 Trackbike
I've owned my '94 900SS CR for a few years now. I somewhat naively bought the bike in 2016 as project, that slowly turned out to be way more of a basket case than i had hoped. Over the past few years it has forced me to become a (very) amateur Ducati mechanic, with lots of help from this forum.
So maybe the story is of interest to some other owners, and it's an excuse to save my pictures of the bikes history here.
The photo above is "early days". I don't have the photos any more, but pretty much right after purchase i had to replace the head studs (due to a hillbilly repair job by a previous owner), and i had the cracked head stock welded and the frame powder coated, which is i think the state of the bike in the picture.
This repair in combination with the stock Mikuni carbs and airbox turned out to be a pain, the airbox was very difficult to remove or install past this brace. That, and a leaking valve stem seal, gave me an excuse to pull the engine again a couple years ago
