250GP-02665 viewsOne of two bikes commissioned by Stan Hailwood for his son Mike (two 350s were also made, the first for Ken Kavanagh and the second for Hailwood). Hailwood raced the bike in 1960 & '61 before the bikes were sold to John Surtees in '61 (he also bought both the 350s). The bike never handled well and had several different frames made for it. It is seen here in its final form with a Ken Sprayson designed frame.

When first announced it had a claimed 43bhp at 11,600rpm. Photographed in Colorado, USA in August 2010. Silverman Museum Racing.
125.4 - 001665 viewsThe only example of Ducati's 125cc 4 cylinder Grand Prix bike. Developed by Fabio Taglioni in 1965 it was extensively tested but never actually raced. The DOHC motor featured 4 valves per cylinder and used an 8 speed gearbox. 23hp at 14,000rpm. Weight 85kg. Prior to its purchase and subsequent restoration the motor had found its way to Latvia and the frame to Yugoslavia! Photographed in Pesaro, Italy. 2011. Morbidelli Museum.

Ducati '67 50 SL/1 - 05653 viewsThe 50 SL/1 replaced the 48 Sport in 1966 and featured an extravagant twin-cap tank and more angular styling. Both low or high exhaust pipes were available. The engine received additional porting, a new head & increased compression. Very few were exported. 6hp. Top speed 80kph. Photographed inMelbourne, Vic. 2005.
Baja - 009645 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.
PD - 028635 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 ( 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.
1975 905 Endurance-001632 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.
