    Race chassis

    Thread Starter: cotswold

    Winter Layup - 1995 Ducati 900 Supersport

    Thread Starter: OddDuck

    Time for major work, unfortunately. Frame's cracked :( Motor is making oil disappear and power isn't what it used to be either, according to seat of pants dyno. Time for the winter layup, get in, strip it, sort out various issues that have been waiting for a while. Step 1: take it to bits.
