:D :D :D
I could bid well over 50,000 and still not get anywhere near the reserved price on that bike.
I'd really like one though.

I would think that because that bike does not come off the Ducati assembly line that it would fetch much less than that...

And I wonder what the 15% non original parts are!

Robert,
Either you're right or I am, lets just watch the auction and see what it goes for, or wether the reserve price is obtained.
Did you know that you can actually order a brand spanking new updated Supermono from a guy in England?
(Who was one of the top boys to go to if you were racing one back in the day)
He builds them to order but uses a 999 topend on them...
The price depends on the final spec, but if you need to ask the price you probably can't afford one.

Yeah you are right, I can't afford one...now. However, if I had the cazash to buy a Supermono you better believe it would be the original real thing, not a rebuild or compilation of parts. Let me reiterate, I WOULD buy a rebuild if I was going to ride it on the track and beat the snot out of it. But for the big money sit-in-the-living room edition, I would want the real thing.

Robert
ps. Oh yes, I have seen the one's that the guy is building new.. as soon as I got wind of that last year.

pss. I had the pleasure of watching Supermono's AND Bimota V-Due racing at Grattan back in the day. Amazing to see and hear.... even though I was there on track with my Ducati, I felt like the little kid looking thru the store window at a toy he couldn't get.

pss. You would think the guy would have much more information in his listing detailing why the bike was built from parts and where the original engine chassis was sourced.

Robert,
I've known John the guy who's selling it for the owner for a looong time,(around 30 years) he used to have a framed picture of my 950 Bevel special over the counter in his showroom.
I could give him a ring on the phone and find out more details.
These days John mainly deals in High priced/top of the pile/price range bikes, which's why I put my 'Guesstimate' of the price so high. ;)
The last genuine Supermono he had for sale was up for around 100.000.
...and the man does know or even set's the prices for the market these days.

And I wonder what the 15% non original parts are!

The clipons, yokes, forks, discs and calipers aren't the real deal! And I have my doubts about the muffler on the exhaust. For me, this is only an attempt to build a supermono-replica and will never be a collector's bike!

It's not that difficult to build a bike like this one, you still can buy the frame from Pierobon, the engine from Biggelaar, fairing from sebimoto,.....

Hi,
I've got some pic's of a Ducati Supermono special that makes even that works/ex works bike look like a farmers very old Tractor.
Full modern day 125GP running gear, wheels, brakes, forks etc and rising rate rear suspension, it's sooo small I could pick it up and put it in my pocket!!
It really isn't any bigger than a current GP125.
I fell over the pic's today (They were sent to me by a mate involved with the builder) whilst looking for something completely different.
This bike was built by 'Tigcraft' here in the UK.
I dare you all not to be impressed with these pic's as long as they come out clearly...Fingers crossed here.

I'm into twins. The only thing that keeps me from the Supermono is that I'd need two!

Does anyone have drawings of the engine that they can or will share?

Scott, there was something wrong with that bike...

...I'm close to 6ft tall and there was no way that I could throw my leg over it and have the balls of both my feet touch the floor...I feel sorry for the owner, think he may have bought a dud! :p

I've just found a man with two Supermonos - but he doesn't have an SP4 in his collection. Keeping my fingers crossed he'll swap one for mine - I'll tell him 2 cylinders are better than one and an SP4 is better than the rest!;)

Cheers

Robert Holden's bike isn't it?

The "new" SuperMono that once appeared in John Fallon's MadeinItaly now resides in my garage. Non original parts comprise of the front end as detailed in an earlier post, these being sourced from a 996SPS. Reason for this is the non availability of the Ohlins bottom suitable for 270mm disc mounting however since purchase I've gathered the correct parts to finish it off, just require the time to complete. All other parts of this bike built by Alistair Wager came from his comprehensive original factory stock, such is his relationship with the facory and association with the model since the launch in '93. It was never Alistair's intention to pass this off as a genuine factory built bike hence the Britalia plaque on the top yoke, and that same plaque will adorn the correct yoke when I do the final finish.
Managed a Sunday gallop on the slick shod Mono round the back roads of the village, 4 mile of sheer bliss then into the “pits” afore the sheriff awoke for the afternoon tea.

Good to see a photo. of Scottie's Mono; many years ago I rode this bike through the streets of Edinburgh, a test ride prior to placing a rejected bid to purchase, sum offered was a fair bit below 20k - I seem to mind it went for near 24k. At the time I'd not long sold my racing 450 Desmo and fancied a return to the class, the trade off would have been a bread an' water diet for a year or two. A good tune up that, drop the weight from a Capirossi 58kg. to a Pedrosa matching 50 !

And just for you Scottie Sir, the latest FG(FD) stand, fits a range of bikes with solid fitrests, made from the top frame tube of the neighbour’s wife’s scrap Raleigh; works with the SuperMono, 888SPS and SP5, 916SPS, 998R, Mondial Piega, Bimota V-Due and the Rob North Trident, versatile it definately is.
Dorothy has offered another buried cast off provided I transfer all that is above to the November 5th. bonfire. and / or Steptoe & Son.
Get yer order in Now, beat the Christmas rush.
