The motorcycle industry needs more people like Rene Waters. Not in it for the money, but simply for the love of motorcycles. Rene runs the very impressive Ducati Meccanica, which is a website for Ducati enthusiasts. The site has one of the greatest collections of Ducati workshop and owners manuals, photographs and pretty much anything else that will help inspire you to build, buy or restore a Duc. The best thing is, he gives it all away for free, “no money is made, no ads are sold, nothing is for sale… just enjoy it” Rene says.

Joe from Joe’s V Cycle was employed in the airline industry for most of his career as a Lead Aircraft Technician. After numerous years maintaining and rebuilding Boeing and Airbus engines, Joe now spends his time building and restoring classic motorcycles. These beautiful bikes are just a taste of his recent handy work. The stunning blue Ducati is a 1966 Monza 250 and the green Honda is a 1972 cb750. “The Ducati and the CB750 were built this winter over about a 6 month period. Both were total overhauls with both engine and frame suspension plus all the custom work and parts. All the work was done in house except for powder coating and cad plating” says Joe. It’s definitely worth checking out Joe’s custom and restoration galleries.

Ducati Sport

This beauty was found on Radical Ducati, an Italian Spanish site that has a great sense of humour and a great site that shows some detailed pics of the restoration. Judging by the pics it looks like a family affair. They describe this bike as a 1960 Ducati 49cc Sportivo. Can’t find much information about this model but it looks very similar to the Ducati 98cc Gran Sport.

Ducati Desmo 1975

Posted on May 24, 2009 by Scott in Café Racer, Classic, Racer. 3 comments

This bike is a beautiful piece of history. Not only did it offer spectacular performance, it offered a set of features rarely seen on a sport bike. The four-stroke engine was able to satisfy the needs of any biker, including those interested in racing, without special customization (sadly to some like myself). This was the result of italian design and superior craftmanship, combining the potential of the twin-cylinder engine with the unrivalled mechanics of the legendary 750 ImolaBMWcycles just sold one with only 125 miles on it. Fresh out of the crate. Their site is worth checking out for other classic bikes for sale.
