After the original Ducati MHR, MHR Mille, MHe 900, the NCR Hailwood Replica racer, is this the Ultimate Replica after all..!!
I think it's really amazing that a motorcycle event after 40 years still gets attention like this....

Did VeeTwo recreate the engine, or are those of Ioannoni ? He has been building them for years.
Seeing the tacho going more than once over the 10K, I suspect there is a plainbearing crank in it.

They build the engine, using the original Ducati prototype drawings with permission by Ducati...!
Engine is called "Ritorno" and yes, plain crankshaft bearing!
The next generation Bevel Twin, never made by Ducati...

Vee Two even designed a "new" 750 Bevel Green Frame with 122HP.... for sale at about $60.000.

The engines that were used in the endurance-racers weren't entirely build by Ducati but by NCR.
They got unofficial help from factory-employees and engineers, but because they were a governement-steered factory, they weren't allowed to spend money on such capitalist things as racing.
Hence NCR-Ducati.
There (according to Giorgio) was only a limited run of NCR-cases made and developed and as far as I know, Ioannoni came closest to reproducing them.
It seems only logical that with strengthening and modern materials and machining, VeeTwo get a lot of rpm and power out of the engine.

Brook Henry bought the molds for this engine from Guiseppi Ioanoni . Kent Jörnevall was the middleman in this deal

in my humble opinion he is taking a lot of credit for work he did not do .

never the less a nice bike tho .
