Bonneville single shock Alexander's Ducati Road Racer Dale is well known on the Two-stroke List as an extremely knowledgeable ring-ding expert, but he also dabbled with four strokes. Here are some pictures of the bevel-cam drive SS Ducati he converted to belt-drive cams in the early s well before V2 in Australia or anyone else.
Photos courtesy of Dale Alexander. A picture of Dale on the Ducati during a practice day at Sears Point with the cars! Dale and Craig thought the megaphone was far enough from Dale's leg, but it did get a bit toasty until slightly relocated. You can see the belt drive conversion.
Note the check valve for the crankcase extraction the dreaded exhaust sucker to the left of the carb. Tim had made plans to go to the Mostra Scambio in Imola I guess it must be the biggest classic swap meet in Europe - it was waaaaaay bigger than anything I've seen in the USA and very kindly invited me to go along.
Our first stop was in Bologna at the Ducati factory and museum. Sadly, I had fairly slow film in my camera so not many of the museum photos came out. It was so neat to see bikes "in the flesh" that I'd only read about or seen pictures of, and as I'm a fan of small road race and dirt bikes I found plenty of stuff to photograph.
The sign with it made it sound like it was a replica of a frame made in the mids. Perhaps the elusive Pagani frame? The Sparton was a cc Suzuki triple engine with Barton top end and internals stuffed into a bespoke Spondon chassis.
I'v got no idea who made it but would like to find out!
Thanks to Joep Kortekaas for this information: He also tuned racing bikes for some Italian companies. This appears to be a cc with 25 HP at 11, rpm" 72K jpeg file DRS Joep very kindly provided this photo from his archives.
Imola photo Here's a special - why not take 3 Moto Minarelli engines and put them together to make a triple? This is a top view of the bike.
Note the crankcases on the ground that have been fitted together. Extra cases and body work were with the bike. Primo Zanzani was the head of the MotoBi race shop, and gave the Benelli Quattro racers competitive power though he couldn't convince the head of Benelli to make changes that would have given the 4 cylinder racers an oiling system that would let their cranks make use of that extra power.We can help home sellers understand what buyers expect and determine realistic pricing for your home under the current market conditions.
