Ducati 750 Sport

Every few a vintage motorcycle comes that literally stops me in my machine so sculptural and beautiful, it almost be criminal to subject it to the of the open road. It happened months ago when pre-release of the French “CP Project #1″ Triton in my inbox. And now it’s happened with this 1974 750 Sport.

As so often happens the internet, a few images of this were floating around, but any clues to its provenance. I’m no Ducati but the machine is obviously customized—and a little investigation, it turns out it’s a rare 1974 750 Sport Desmo Special by Mike Cecchini of Maryland, a well-known name in Ducati

His café racer took out the Card Judges Pick’ at the Ducati Superbike Concorso at Laguna Seca, probably there’s more to this than first meets the The original Sport [see review ] was based on the 750 GT, but with carburetors and high-compression cylinder and pistons. The upgrades reportedly an extra 8 hp to the rear wheel, and with a reduced frontal made the Sport good for 200

Cecchini’s machine, however, is a ‘Desmo Special’—so it looks the engine is in an even higher of tune, with a non-standard valve system for higher and even more power. If you anything more about the of this bike, please us a line in the comments. [Many to Steve Ducharme of MPOTD. and member Jehu. First two © Vicki Smith .]

Update from owner Cecchini . I’m very pleased you my 1974 Ducati Sport Special. I think you can tell put my heart and soul into motorcycle. Frankly I never I would ever own a green but when I saw the paint color at a car show, I knew it was the one for this

The Sport Desmo engine is of great joy for me as I am a gearhead through and Not only is it rather nice to at (now you can see why they are called motors) but it was also built to run as as the bike looks, by one of the very Ducati engine builders in America, Guy Martin of MBP Ducati .

Pronounced “Gee”—he’s French a long-time friend and a well-respected engine builder in Montreal, When I approached Guy to work on the Desmo project he was not initially in building any more bevel as the numbers of them had dwindled to nothing and they take an amount of time to set-up and assemble compared to the new belt-driven motors. But after some arm (and a few good dinners and of wine) he agreed and promised to an engine befitting the project.

To with, Ducati roundcase GT and motors use valve springs most engines of the 70s and only the motors are spring-less, with doing all the valve opening and work. In those days if one to reach the rpms needed for hp, there was little else would allow a motor to rev and not valves floating about. once Guy got into the project he to pull out all the stops and not only do the desmo head conversion, but his “TestaRossa ” headwork on the Sport to bring them into the century.

Over the winter of 2006 Guy a very special engine his 20+ years of experience in the Canadian industry as an engine and materials control inspector, along his excellent Ducati engine experience. So not only did the upper of the engine get the full head and Desmo treatment, but the crank, rods and pistons also upgraded to the point where the was now able to go well past its 7500 rpm redline, to nearly rpm—which Guy told me I had better not

Doh! With this in I set the engine redline at 10,500 and the has gone from its original 58 hp to a tad over 80 rear wheel hp.

In and as I read the comments left by here, rest assured that while this gets the finest care and the good life in my shop, actually being used as #1: make any gearhead stop, and enjoy. But more importantly, #2: it as often as possible. So far it’s ridden in anger at V.I.R. the Mid-Atlantic Ducati Club and on the roads and rolling hills of … right where it belongs.

My best … Mike Cecchini.
