Hi, been riding for the last 40 plus years and im 54 now, so an official old bastard, but a teenager in the head.
I love the new stuff, but im a bevel man at heart, just a couple of images of my VeeTwo Imola Evo 168kg 124BHP at the wheel, and the old 1975 900 Super Sport, a rare old bird, but still looks amazing to me. The SS is still getting finished by Brook Henry, as is the Imola, Brook is an amazing Ducati Engineer
Hey guys, how’s it going?
I’ve got my lovely 996 all prepped and ready to race this year, an they cancelled the racing
So rather than sulk I found a poorly 749s that needs some tlc while am stuck at home, I will probably be looking for some parts fuel pressure regulator is the first.
Look forward to chatting with you guys
Wasn’t planning on doing any kind of thread on this bike, as I couldn’t really be bothered and didn’t plan on doing too much to it - but as I’m sat here bored I felt what the hell, pics are good and the more pics of these Tamburini bikes getting fettled the better!
Anyways since selling my 916, I kind of thought why on earth did I do that and hankered after an ohlins/marchesini clad 996 later model bike and one turned up in a right old sorry state up in Scotland.
We had been talking a while, and the guy had a genuine reason why he had let the bike sit for ten years and hadn’t even looked at it during that time. It was at a mates house stuck in a corner of the garage. He bought it in 2004, and last set his eyes on it in 2010.
Here are the pics I had to go on, fresh from storage
Stumbled on this forum while looking for info on late 1000supersports with red frames, don't now how I could have missed it.
Anyway, I live in a small town near Rotterdam and proud owner of an 851, an ST4s and ... a Honda, but a great one!
We had a trip planned to Snetterton this summer, but that's probably not goining to happen, hoping for next year.
I haven't got a photo with bins, could somebody explain what that's all about?
Well This is where it all started about 2 years ago. Possibly stolen but a vehicle check of the frame number confirmed that it was clean, gave me a reg number and the ability to get a V5. Only then did money change hands. Everything that could be removed from it quickly had disappeared. wheels, forks, pipes, clutch, fairing,tank etc etc. Oh I forgot to mention it is a 998R. So I started trawling round for all the major missing bits and 2 years later its starting to go back together. So 2 pics of the start point and 1 of the current situation. Still looking for some smaller bits but going in the right direction now.
Obviously due to events out of our control our bbq in June will be postponed. I say postponed because I want to reschedule it for Sept time for a massive fuck-off celebration!!!
So I want to see as many of you as possible to raise a can and the middle finger to these crazy times ending!!
Stay safe everyone, much love
I hope everyone is well and keeping positive in these hard times. I’ve been a regular visitor to the forum and thought it best to sign up when I have plenty of time on my hands. Currently have a flat track pro which I love and as with all our bikes at the minute is begging to be uncovered. Hopefully we will all be patient and can enjoy a good first ride no matter how far away it seems.
Meanwhile the forum seems to be a good substitute for all manner of things bike related or not. Told the wife I had to include a shot of our bins. I have now been told the power hosing needs done as the slabs are green. Looking forward to being an active forum member once I’ve the ever growing list of odd jobs done for the boss
My subconcious mission to make the ultimate 1098R continued a few months ago and I forgot all about it.
Now this is a silly bike that has me flipping between grinning like a Cheshire Cat and wanting to throw the thing into the nearest hedge, such is it's ridiculous nature. I've contemplated selling it a few times but can't seem to pull the trigger, often after feelings of indecision, I end up buying something for it, maybe to subconciously ensure I keep it?
Anyhoo, for a good 3 or so years, I've wanted a BST carbon fibre swing arm for it, but they are north of £3k now and I couldn't justify it (I recently bought a full bike for less). I've had them on my eBay watch list in that time and apart from a poor 2nd hand example and expensive ones in the USA, nothing has popped up, until.............October last year and a brand new one apears in.........Melbourne, Australia. Anyway, I make the guy a really cheeky offer (really cheeky ) and as...
We are all bored aren’t we?
I’m fairly busy with my ‘real job’ providing clinical waste solutions for the NHS right now. But in my spare time I’m a race/motorsport coach/instructor. Last week I did a bit of FWD with our very own @Monners utilising a friend of mines company Apex Track Cars to help him get his mojo back after a big off in Jerez
anyway, some pictures.... because we are all bored.
absolutely zero reason for the post.
Well, many of you who follow the "What have you done today thread" may know that I have been working away on a little project (plus a very small number of those in the know).
Given the limited riding opportunities, I though it might be entertaining for some to detail what I've been up to. As I type, its getting close to being finished as I was aiming to get it taxed for 01 April. I plan to update the "story" over the forthcoming days when I get a lull in between finishing the bike off, fielding phone calls from family and friends and walking the dogs (ONCE per day mind, and then on leads).
I had been looking for a project through the winter, either a 748 or any of the 9** variants. Prices were high in the main which stopped me buying a couple of likely candidates. But, there was a 996 Biposto that seemed to be stuck at a dealers. I watched it for a couple of months.
@West Cork Paul @cookster and I got into a bit of banter on how cheap could you pick up a 996. This was...
Went up to Fowlers in Bristol from North Devon to collect it last week. I had a fear a lock down like this would happen and that would be it for a while..
Yes I know it's a Ducati forum ... The V4S is in the background having a new carbon belly pan fitted.
Wouldn't want it to get jealous of the new kid..
Isle of Man TT legend Tony Rutter has died.
Son Michael has released this statement:
“It is with sadness that after a period of poor health, dad passed away earlier today. I was with him when he died at about 2am and he was very peaceful.
“It makes me smile how dad lived his life exactly how he wanted to and how he got away with so much.
“He will probably be best remembered for winning the world TT-F2 championship four times on a Ducati, as well as seven Isle of Man TT wins, nine North West 200 wins, and two British championship titles during his 22 year career.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to his carers for taking such good care of him and all his fans and supporters.”
