Re: Is this the ultimate trackday bike?

It's rather lovely and it's nice to dream, but I'd not want to own it to ride regularly. Maybe to put on display or as an investment if it's the real article.
I'd not turn down a track day if it was offered to me for free of obligation mind you.......
If the motor is anything like WSB spec. then you're talking a 500km (between strip downs) hand grenade. It's probably running timed out crankcases etc. that the race teams dump. Drop it and unless you're a WSB level team you'll (a) probably not be able to get the bits and (b) even if you're connected enough to do so won't be able to afford them unless you're very rich.
Sorry to be such a wet rag, too old and seen too much I guess..........

Re: Is this the ultimate trackday bike?

Wow...

However, it must have been retrofitted with the starter/battery setup because the RS (customer bikes) and up don't have that stuff...

Thats super cool stuff there. I know a guy on the duc list that has a 1995 (I think) frankie chili 955 bike... Must be cool to be that 'money'!

VEE DUBB in da house... representin deutchland!

Re: Is this the ultimate trackday bike?

huh, showbombsme, that is not Borge's ONLY bike. *His regular 'track' ride is a GSXR750, he also frequents his Aprilia RS250, has a GSXR750 in CA for a September ride we do out there every year, has a tricked race Duc 750ss that he keeps blowing the motor on because it has no rev limiter, so he bought a brand new Duc 750ss for a practice bike and save the other until race day. * Plus at home he has another Duc 888 I believe and also a KTM Duke II.

Must be nice, HUH!

edit because I was skimming post and read it wrong. OOPS.




Knee down, is a corner taken!

ummm, wouldn't it have been more sensible to buy a revlimiter

Now the rage is back to the 43mm tubes. Kinda funny how that works.

At Road America last year this dude showed up with one of Scott Russell's old Ducs. He took it out after we finally got it started. (I ran the little starter motor thing on the tire) It was pretty dang cool. He said part of his agreement in buying it was the ability to get parts.
