250GP - 002781 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 "Nello" Pagani. The 54x54 bore/stroke V-twin motor used a shaft drive, with the overall design predating the famous Moto Guzzi layout by some 13 years. Photographed in Milan, Italy. 2011. Casa Lambretta collection.

Baja - 013763 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.

1975 905 Endurance-010753 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.
