1981 Ducati Pantah 500 Racer
Starting life as a road going 500, this spectacular bike was built by one of the Australian Ducati racing legends, Mike Soderland, owner of Gowanloch Ducati. This bike produces around 70Hp and weighs in at only 145kgs.
Using a # 350 crank, balanced and chemically polished at the F1 car company in Melbourne, the engine mods result in a 50mm stroke and 80mm bore, thus ensuring compliance with Period 5 racing regs. The entire build was performed with a ‘no expense’ attitude; Carillo rods and Pistons, 900ss cams, bigger valves, heads ported and flowed to suit the larger valves, hydraulic clutch with carbon fibre plates, and a close ratio gear box that has been strengthened to eliminate racing concerns.
Silent Hetik ignition, Gianelli race muffler modified for the increase in output, lightweight exhaust flanges, lightweight aluminium foot pegs and rear sets. The stock frame was strengthened and braced, 38 mm Marzocchi forks with 280mm rotors and larger callipers, and Boer adjustable rear springs.
The build is complimented with freshly painted NCR Body Work. A truly fabulous looking bike that could, if required, be returned to street use.
