1975 905 Endurance-001572 viewsThe 1975 Barcelona 24 Hour race winning bike. Ducati had a long history of successes racing singles at the Monjuich Park circuit and entered the new V-twin in 1973 ridden by Benjamin Grau & Salvador Canellas - and scored a debut victory! The '73 bike used the '73 750 Imola's 86mm bore cylinders together with the standard stroke for a capacity of 864cc. The 750's 60 degree heads and dry clutch were also used. In '74 a gearbox problem caused the same pairing to retire while in the lead after 16 hours but they won again the following year, beating the G-G Kawasaki by 13 laps. New, narrower sand-cast crankcases were used. In addition the capacity was raised to 905cc resulting in 96hp at 9,000rpm. A lightweight Daspa frame was used. Grau & Virginio Ferrari also won the 1000km race at Mugello that year. Photographed in a private collection in Rimini, Italy in 2008.

PA-PD-026.jpg
PD - 026559 viewsOne of the few customer racers sold by Cagiva (but developed by Roberto Azzalin's CH Racing) in the mid '90's, this one was exported to Australia. Seen here in its bare form it has never been run. The works bikes motors were prepared by the Race Dept. at Ducati and featured special pistons & con rods, reinforced clutch & other modified parts (http://www.philaphoto.com/imageLibrary/thumbnails.php?album=912). Edi Orioli won the Paris-Dakar four times - twice riding Elefants, in 1990 & 1994. A specially reinforced 5 speed gearbox was fitted in place of the standard 6 speed unit. Total fuel capacity of 51lt (23lt main, 28lt rear). The wheelbase of 1640mm is 90mm longer than standard! Dry weight 189kg. Wet weight 225kg. 75hp at 7,500rpm. Max torque of 70nm at 5,500rpm. Top speed of 190kph. Price new of about €20,000. Photographed in Sydney, NSW in 1997.

TT2-021.jpg
1981 600 TT F2-021542 viewsThe 1982 & '83 TT Pantahs were the definitive Ducati V-twin production racers and one of Taglioni's finest designs. 20 were built in '82 (30 in '83). The unique Verlicchi frame only weighed 7kg and the 597cc motor made 76hp at 10,500rpm. Dry weight 122kg. The production racers used wet clutches as opposed to the factory bikes' dry units. The World Championship TT2 regulations required the original method of starting and carburettor size to be retained so the F2 versions had an electric starter & 36mm Dellortos. Tony Rutter won five consecutive World Formula TT2 championships ('81-'85) on the Pantah, while numerous Italian championships were also won from '82 to '85. A sleeved down, 500cc version even finish 7th at Mugello in the Italian 500 series - competing against TZ500s & RG500 GP bikes! This is frame number 14. Photographed in the Hunter Valley, NSW in 2009.

PA-2011_Lam250GP-002.jpg
250GP - 002537 viewsOriginally shown at the 1951 Milan Show as a dry sump, SOHC design, the 250GP evolved into a wet sump, DOHC bike by the time it was retired in 1953. This bike (number 1 of the two built) was discovered abandoned under a pile of rubbish after the factory was closed in 1972. The bike was designed by Giuseppe Salmaggi and raced, not particularly successfully, by Romolo Ferri and Cirillo Pagani. The 54x54 bore/stroke in-line motor used a shaft drive and markedly resembles the later famous Moto Guzzi layout. Photographed in Milan, Italy. 2011. Casa Lambretta collection.
PA-BajaTTc0511-012.jpg
Baja - 012537 viewsOne of 17 650cc Bajas built by the experimental department at the Moto Guzzi factory during 1984-5. The TTCs (Tutto Terenno Competizione) never quite made the grade in the Paris-Dakar but competed successfully in European rallies for many years. One neat touch is the fold-away gearbox kick start lever as used in the NATO V50 models. A LeMans rear hub, swing arm & final drive housing were adapted for use and a Cagiva Elefant hub & floating Brembo disc were fitted at the front end. 4 or 5 750cc racers were constructed after 1985. All the Bajas were hand built and many have different details. This bike is unrestored and ridden regularly. Photographed in Melbourne, 2011.
