Hello gentlemen and gentlewomen,
Long time Ducati owner finally joining after lurking about on many Ducati sites. I'm currently located on the Virginia coast, been riding bikes since 1978 (started with a '78 Suzuki GS750 and went from there). In my "golden years", I finally scratched my Ducati 916 itch, an object of puerile lust, and for the last 6 years have been enjoying the crap out of it. In addition to honing about on the 916, I also do some touring on my BMW 1150 RS. I also enjoy restoring, resto modding and building custom old cafes, completed many, and currently keep my favorites, a 1971 Ducati 350 Café and a restomodded 1965 Honda SuperHawk. The Ducati has a fully built engine with 10.5 Borgo piston, big valves with custom flowed heads, race cam and connecting rod. The SuperHawk has a "big" bore kit (still just 350cc!), and a Nova Racing 5 speed transmission (what a sweet transmission!). Did all the work myself from the mechanicals to the powder coating and paint, so in...
Hello everyone thought I would start my 916 restoration project thread off.
So to begin it’s a 1994 916 Strada built in Varese after the fire in Bolonga so ether the holy grail or absolute heresy depending on who you ask.
The bike is currently rough as a badgers tadger cosmetically and on 26k miles much higher mileage than I would like but for the price I paid it was an absolute steal for a 1994.
The bike is complete baring an original cajiva stamped screen and original faring rivets which I have already sourced from a member on here. I have reams of paperwork including the original bill of sale and dealers acceptance paperwork.
So the restoration is going to be a full back to frame job as the bike needs completely repainted frame, engine, fairings the lot.
but it has been maintained faultlessly mechanically by the previous owner.
I even managed to track down the original owner who was delighted to find out the bike was still around and was thrilled with my intention to restore her...
Hello DucatiForum UK. I'm Mike a SoCal Ducatisti. I'm a long member of another US. Ducatiforum but I thought I'd give this one a try as well. I've owned a handful of docs over the years but currently in the garage are a 2002 748 and a 2020 Multi1260 Enduro. I sold my truck a while back So I commute daily on the multi and the 748. I hope to be a great addition to the community and look forward to reading through the great library of information these forums keep.
Flew over from Bristol Monday morning with squeezy jet, £296 4 nights, quality hotel, staying in the old Jewish town district, the food & beer are so well priced, 9 zloty Tyskie polish lager, very good, equates to £1.75 ...thoroughly recommend it, visited Auschwitz / Birkenau today, extremely humbling
So far ...highly recommended

This is how she looks at the moment since the fitment of @bettes carbon fibre wheels, a Motogadget dash, a new trick headlight and a pair of Supercorsas.
Ironically, given her name, she doesn't have her best carbon fibre frock on as the tank has sprung a leak, so that's a steel tank and OE plastic seat unit with a rattle can spray job.
- Swap the brand new Supercorsas back to old 2CTs so I can use her in the winter.
- Get carbon tank repaired and refitted, along with the CF seat unit.
- Headlight shroud cunningly fashioned from an S4 mudguard I have lying around.
- Fork covers by Paolo Tex custom made in carbon.
- 996 S4R engine swap (fingers crossed I am buying @dukesox bike as a donor).
- Ohlins forks and radial brakes.
I also feel at this point I should give a shout out to the workshop which has done the work on the bike which is beyond the scope of my skills or my facilities, ie: most of it (I only have an outdoor yard and a small shed, so very limited) -...
