Sourced a Hand Pounded Evan Wilcox Aluminum Tank that had taken some race damage over the years from a friend. This Machine was a Low Mileage Beauty with only 8,000 miles on the clock when I first layed eyes on it 9 years previous. It had really not been ridden as the owner was more into Harleys so she sat in his garage in waiting for someone to discover her. I thought what a great time to offer up my interest in his machine. Thus I road away on this 1979 Ducati 900 GTS Bevel Darmah case Model, and proceeded to slowly change the bikes lines adding Evans Aluminum petrol tank, Tomoselli clip-on bars, original CONTI Mufflers, aluminum race number plates.
I fully serviced the engine myself rebuilding carbs, replacing the clutch with a heavier springs and plates, performance suspension, I removed the heads for inspection and replaced all the bevel gear bearings and a valve job. She has been a trouble free beauty for 3 years of almost daily riding.
