    Default 1973 Ducati 750 activity

    Ducati engineer Fabio Taglioni mixed two single cylinder motors on a single crankshaft and efficiently proven the V-Twin in July 1971. In October, 1971 Ducati brought the V-Twin GT 750.
    In April, 1972 group Ducati ran 1st and 2nd on the Imola 200 with a Desmo edition of the V-Twin marking their first victory in a large displacement race. By using June Ducati had launched the 750 game.
    The 750 activity wasn’t only a trimmed up GT. The motor had larger compression, lighter crankshaft and Dell’Orto carbs which yielded a major HP gain. Black engine circumstances and black entrance forks with a fiberglass gas tank, clip on bars and rear set pegs had been introduced.
    In 1973 a narrower gas tank and rear sub frame has been the major adjustments.



    The 1973 Ducati 750 game used a 748 CC air cooled four stroke bevel pushed overhead cam V-Twin that produces sixty two HP. A 5 speed transmission with a single disc front and expanding drum rear brakes and a total dry weight of 423 LBS put top velocity over one hundred twenty MPH.



    This certain 750 game is essentially definitely a 1974. though listed as a 1973, the polished engine circumstances, the metal fuel tank, Cerani front forks with Brembo brake that have been all changes made for 1974. The bike (VIN # 755881) also seems to point out a 1974. The bike is observed in Mill Valley, California and is listed as a 1973 Ducati 750 S with an excellent listing of the parts. It has a purchase It Now expense of $sixty five,000

    Interesting, I really should stop using my big ball pein hammer on these old girls. A miss could prove costly. One for sale here for $45000, I have one in my shed, with another in bits waiting for frame work. Then on top of that Bob is cleaning up another in his shed. Common as muck at the moment!

    A carpenters hammer works equally well,Griff - and you can easily pry the engine covers off with the claw end.

    I'm pulling off your alt cover tomorrow for a squizz, you can come over and give me a technique demo.
    By the way when we were moving the lathe in, it fell over. Luckily your bike broke its fall and prevented the lathe getting damaged.

    Ps. Jet pilot grows the best watermelons. Absolutely delicious.

    Just nail the broken bits back on Griff. If you need to glue any parts together, use white glue - it dries clear.

    Ok, sounds reasonable to me. Marks got plenty of glue. How do you feel about a wooden clutch cover? Mark does nice work. Can of silver spray paint and no will know!
