External oil feed

External oil feed

There are many ways to upgrade the Parallel Twin engine. One of them is realizing an external oil feed as Arthur van Till did. He didn’t weld small mayfolds to the top of the cilinderhead like Mototrans did but he used the left hand cam bearingcover. To make sure the...
Panigale Twins Patch

Mosna Racing Team

Mosna Racing Team

Last week I came across some parts. The former owner told me that he bought these parts long time ago from someone who was involved with racing. I know  there has been racing with Ducati Paralleltwins but concerning race parts and teams there is very little known. On one  of...
Bikes and spares

Bikes and spares

Recently I got hold of a ton of spare parts and a 500 SD and a 350 GTL. The 500 SD is in a project state and in need of TLC but the 350 GTL is a sollid runner with a fairly new 500 engine fitted. Are you in need...
Mototrans 500 SD

Mototrans 500 SD

A couple of days ago I received a very nice email from Diego Cànovas Navarro who lives near Murcia in Spain. Diego is a Mototrans SD 500 rider and made a very nice Restoration.  As we know Mototrans made some significant changes to the design of the Ducati 350/500 models....

Party Time !

Celebrate your success. Wise words from a friend of mine .  Last week I checked my visitors counter and I discovered that we passed the 10.000 visitors. It might seem like a small number but as for a small group of enthusiasts it is a compliment. I would like to...
Pazon Ignition

Pazon Ignition

Lately I have had many requests for ignition parts as the old parts aren’t there any more. I have been working on building an ignition but progress is slow. We had a discussion which ignition can be used and has been used already. Ian Dobson from the UK showed my...
Durability

Durability

In the past decade the press and the rest of the world have been looking at the Paralleltwins as if they where from another planet. Negative comments have been written about it’s durability and the bad reputation of any part breaking down. Exactly this is what keeps us going !!...
Ignition

Ignition

Still working on a electronic ignition but in order to get it right I need to figure out what the correct timing is. With this engine nothing is straightforward, so why should this be ……. at this point the ignition is compared with the one from a Jawa !!!  I...
Pre-Production 500

Pre-Production 500

Sometimes you stumble upon new information. Just as I did some weeks ago when I visited Rob Klootwijk who used to be in charge of the Ducati Club Nederland archive. We found our selves talking about Parallel Twins and Rob told me he should have something nice somewhere. Of course...
Experiment

Experiment

I wanted to try to see how a 2-1 exhaust system would work and would look. I my garage I found some parts lying around and made in some hours a system. And this how it looks like. Not only just for fun but as well as an experiment for...
Testing !

Testing !

There comes a moment when things come together. like now at eastern, finally a few days off so time can be spent in our workshop. Extensive preparation has been done, parts are available and modified and we have a 500 SD standing by and ready to receive our dry-clutch set...
Mototrans knew !

Mototrans knew !

When Mototrans took over part of the production from Ducati they must obviously have known about the technical imperfections that Ducati decided not to perform. Mototrans actually did a good job by looking at the engine design and focused on the problems at hand. One of the issues is oil...
Dry clutch

Dry clutch

   When building the dry clutch we found out that we couldn’t use any parts from existing models who have a dry clutch. To make things worse the drive gear for the oil pump is situated at the rear of the primary gearbox gear and the primary gear shaft is...
350 GTV

350 GTV

The 350 GTV saw it’s life light in 1977 to replace the 350 GTL . At that time the 350 GTL suffered from failing crankshafts and bad electrics. But unfortunately the damage was done and the motorbike market wasn’t waiting for an other paralleltwin to go touring. At that time...
Straight cut gears

Straight cut gears

One of the large problems with the Parallel-twin are the main bearings. They are not the actual problem but they tend to fail after a while. The crankshaft is pushed against the bearing flange on either side of the casings during acceleration or deceleration and are easy to wear out. This...
My 500 SD

My 500 SD

  Last year my Ducati 500 SD just wouldn’t start using the starter motor. When you jump-started the bike it ran after 10 meters en did that very nicely. Changed a whole bunch of electrical parts, adjusted ignition timing to the maximum perfection, fitted new ground leads and even changed...

Bad wiring

Bad wiring

Last weekend I have been working on a 500 GTL. Bringing the bike to it’s (almost) orriginal state can be quite a job. Especially if the wiring has been worked on before. I think everyone working on these bikes will have to best intentions to get things right. From time to time the “best intentions” isn’t...
Magnesium wheels

Magnesium wheels

We have all heard the tails and maybe seen a broken magesium wheel but here is how it actually looks like. On the GTV models you can find the magnesium  5-spoke Speedlines. They might appeal to you but be very aware of what can happen if you actually use them. Last summer I came across some...

DucBMWti 650 Mono

 Okay I agree….. it is not a Paralleltwin but I just whant to share this picture with you. This guy in The Netherlands took a 500 SD and modified the frame so it would take a BMW 650 engine. Not a bad job I might add !
