Re: Sport Desmo twin>single conversion?

Hey Ducadini Thanks for that - all good stuff Be interesting to see how this goes. Plan A is to see how I get on with the SD to start with - tidy it up and, hopefully, run around on it this summer. I do have a non desmo 350 single available so that's a good place to start- if it can be made to fit.....

Sport Desmo twin>single conversion?

Been reading the other threads about this so I thought I'd post up I went to look at a 350 Sport Desmo late last summer - barn find, private import to the UK from Italy. Found it whilst tooling around EBay. . Not actively looking to buy, but aware of the model and it's reputation. 5 miles from my wo...

Frank We've never met or conversed but as a long time owner and fan of Ducati I knew your name and something of your involvement with the marque I've not been able to access the internet much of late but I knew that you had been 'in the wars' and have thought of you on occasion, hoping that you were...

central wheels

I would recommend them very highly - I used them to rebuild a pair of wheels for a 250 Daytona. Going for the original look but with a touch of practicality I went for unpolished stainless spokes, brass nipples and chrome Radaelli rims. The latter were supposedly water damaged in a flood they had a ...

SSD

They come up occasionally in the ads in 'Desmo', the Ducati Owners Club (GB) magazine. I'll keep an eye out...
Incidentally, why the SSD?
Always interested in others opinions. I was offered an SSD by a dealer a few years ago, but ended up with an SS after also trying a MHR.

4 bolt Campags/FPS wanted in the the UK

Wanted to return my 900ss to standard. Prefer Campags, but FPS would do.
Thanks

I have the same bike. Standard fit was a square bodied Dellorto 29VHBmm carb, which was also fitted to the 350 and 450. I don't have any info about the 32mm, which presumably came off a Darmah or similar? Haynes states a 125/122 main jet for the Darmah, so in comparison a 125 for a 250 would seem a ...

And more... Ignore the bit about diificult to locate twin nipple P08's - don't know where that came from. Getting confused with tricky to find Goldlines I think... Just measured the pins, which turn out to be closer to 62mm than 60. Dave Middleton is the only person I know of that lists stainless ni...

Bit more... Dave Middleton also does stainless nipples. I am going to get a complete set of stainless stuff from him to refurbish all the calipers on my black and gold 900SS. This bike, made in 78/79 but not registered until early '81, has the early calipers like yours but the later see thru master ...

Shaved caliper

Not sure if machining down a single PO8 would give a good result - you'd need to locate a twin nipple caliper to start with and whilst easier to find than the shaved ones they're not exactly common... Steve may not have the correct pins, but in the GB you can get them in stainless from D. Middleton ...

Which old bevel are you talking about. A new 750GT wiring loom can be had for about £100 and - I'm told - can be quite easily adapted for use of a Sport. Not sure about other models. Try Mdina Italia
