Ducati Sport 1000 revival

I’m a huge fan of Sport 1000 and was disappointed to see go when they ceased production in 2010. The Sport took inspiration from the 750 of the seventies and was one of the few factory made Racer styled bikes on With a seat designed for clip on bars, bar end mirrors and of performance punch it’s no they actually went up in soon after Ducati the plug on them.

When it comes to customising a Modern Classic most even consider it, but for Andy of when an unfortunate accident his beloved Sport 1000 off the he made the most of.

When crashed his bike it was an unmolested, example of a Sport 1000 but it was left with a cracked and frame, bent forks, a front wheel and a smashed With the rest of the bike intact Andy made the to rebuild his beloved Sport but his own concoction of performance and aesthetic First things first he a frame as the old one was well beyond

Prices on brand new replacement were way too high but by chance he across a secondhand Ducati Classic Paul Smart and made the purchase.

The new, narrower and much better seat was a team effort by and good friend De Lagen who the tail by hand while it sat on the before making the final

Other mods on Andy’s 1000 include a set of 999 rims and brake, a 998 front caliper and discs, S4R carbon front Zard titanium exhausts, clutch cover, Rizoma pressure plate, MWR open air Speedymoto clipons, lowered and a single bar end mirror. Finally finished off the bodywork himself a custom grey/black paint with orange Meccanica which I must say is another improvement over the original banana yellow.
