1976 Ducati 900SS
The 1976 900 Supersport is considered the first true “production” 900SS. Fitted with left-side gear lever and turn signals, it was the first Supersport that was sold in genuine international road-legal specification. The fuel tank became steel (fiberglass was illegal in the UK and had been banned in the U.S.), and to meet noise and emission requirements the 76’s Dell Orto’s were reduced from 40mm to 32mmm, making the bike infinitely smoother and more rider friendly down low, and the racing ram-tubes were replaced with air cleaners. Lafranconi mufflers replaced the Conti’s, and the engine was vented into a plastic moulded catch tank under the seat. While all this pleased the authorities and cardigan's of the world, keeping true to their race-orientated marketing philosophy, each 76 was sold with a set of Conti mufflers and 40mm carbs & racing stacks, which instantly returned the 76 to race-status.
This 1976 SS was beautifully restored in 2000 by Gowanloch Ducati, and is the bike used for their marketing and web page. It was then purchased by Bike Factory in Adelaide, who in turn sold it to a Melbourne Ducati enthusiast. In the 18 years since being restored, this spectacular bike has barely travelled 1,000k’s. Started regularly and serviced annually, on arrival to Raidermoto is has undergone a full check-over, oil chance and polish, as nothing more was required. The bike starts first kick, runs & rides beautifully, and can be viewed in Coffs Harbour.
