Ducati 750SS Corsa par NCR 1973
Frame no. DM750SS 750834
Engine no. DM750.1-075226
D'après le vendeur, cette 750 SS de présérie est une des quatre machines identiques modifiées par NCR pour disputer les épreuves de production. Les trois autres furent expédiées aux USA pour y promouvoir la nouvelle 750 SS, en participant au Championnat Américain. Cette machine elle-même figure dans « The Book of the Ducati 750SS » par Ian Falloon (pages 34-35).

Ce moteur équipé de la transmission directe du type « Imola 72 » est toujours équipé de ses vilebrequin, bielles et pistons d'origine. Le préfixe du numéro du cadre « DGM 11871 » est celui du type 750 SS lancé en production en 1974. Cette Ducati fut engagée par divers pilotes de juillet 1973 à la fin de la saison comme moto d'essai et de développement et elle continua de courir dans le championnat italien jusqu'en 1976. Elle fut ensuite laissée à l'abandon dans un garage de Toscane où elle resta pendant plus de 30 ans avant d'être redécouverte en 2010 (voir photos dans le dossier).

En mauvais état, la Ducati bénéficia en Italie d'une restauration poussée au cours des années suivantes et fut montrée ensuite lors de diverses manifestations dont le « Motos Show » de l'ASI à Varano en mai 2014. Décrite par le vendeur comme étant en excellent état général, elle représente une rare occasion d'acquérir une des ces fabuleuses « spéciales d'atelier » de NCR.

Footnotes

  • 1973 Ducati 750SS Corsa by NCR
    Frame no. DM750SS 750834
    Engine no. DM750.1-075226
    .



    According to the vendor, this pre-production 750SS is one of four identical machines modified by NCR for production racing. The other three were sent to the USA to promote the new 750SS there, racing in the American Championship. This particular machine is featured in 'The Book of the Ducati 750SS' by Ian Falloon (on pages 34/35).

    The engine is fitted with direct drive transmission of the 'Imola 72' type and is still fitted with the original crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons. The frame number prefix 'DGM 11871' is that of the 750SS model that entered series production in 1974. This Ducati was campaigned by various riders from July 1973 until the end of the season as a test and development bike, and continued competing in the Italian championship until 1976. It was then abandoned in a garage in Tuscany where it remained for the next 30-plus years, only being rediscovered in 2010 (photographs on file).

    In poor condition, the Ducati was comprehensively restored in Italy over the following years and exhibited at various events after completion, including the ASI Motos Show at Varano in May 2014. Described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, it represents a rare opportunity to acquire one of
    NCR's fabulous 'tool room specials'.
