Do you happen to have any Service Manuals to help you work your way thru restoring one of these beauties back to life again?
Have you ever seen this type of resource (Photo of book below) which covers absolutely EVERYTHING within it for the bike you have, and which I once had within my stable?
Since I no longer have that bike, since I traded it in to toward a 1198s Corse Limited Edition model, it is unfortunately no longer useful to me. Also, what adds more pain to this story is that the individual who purchased my first Ducati 900SS, that I subsequently turned into a beautiful Big Bore bike with a 944 Kit and Keihin 42mm carbs, crashed and totaled the bike which then ended up being parted out -which broke my heart! :bawling:
Would you be interested in this book my friend?
If so, send me a PM with your email address and we can discuss it more offline ok? Trust me, I am not seeking large sums of money for this thing and truthfully hope it is something which you can use to revive such a fantastic old bike!
**I thought it was poignant to attach some old photos of mine here now, and it parked next to the Corse on the day I traded it in. Funny thing is that the two pics of me standing behind it were taken approximately a dozen years apart! The one of me and my wife on back was during a slow parade lap around the track in Loudon, NH, and all custom paintwork was done by friend Sean Lezotte of Connecticut Cycle Refinishing (CCR) -whom I'd be happy to hook you up with for yours as well if you like?
