Hey guys, new member here. I am from Ashland, Ky and just bought another Paso last week. I had a 906 back in the early 90s' and loved it, but traded it off for a pickup. It was spotless with only 6000 miles. Now I have a 750 Paso, well my brother has it. I bought it in Florida last week and he is keeping it for me until I can get down for bike week. It has only 15000 miles and it is red...... oh boy..... can't wait till spring.....Dewey :wacko: :wacko: ...

One will be stock (blue paint) 8) and the other will be a red hot rod cafe racer :cool: .....Also in progress is a bevel drive 900SS replika in silver and blue :P . I also have a Cagiva Ducati Alazzurra SS in red :evil: and a 1999 SS900 with tri-color paint :mrgreen: and lots of CF :-P . Sorry, but I only have one Paso :,( ....at the moment anyway :shock: . Hope to be tolerated until I get my collection built up a little better :!: :!: :!: :!:

I'll have to start a P-Twins page on the forums. There is no other place to find info!!

I have a Black and Gold 350 GTV and A buddy is dropping off a 500 next week plus some spares I'm told.

Here's my 350

Really, the Ducati parallel twins are known to be very bad engines.
They were built to fight the UK factories, but they got very small sales.
Ciao

If anyone knows of a Parallel twin for sale, I am interested to put a 450 single into one. The rest of the bike looks really nice.

The Parallel twins were also know as the Paralyzed twins when the freeze plugs in the heads would fall out and loose all oil pressure to the cams, ruining the entire head. Here tell the first modification is to replace all those aluminum plugs with brass or steel ones.

Yes, I think a page for the Parallel twins would be appropriate here. I don't know where else on the web where they are discussed.

Cheers,

I like the GTL because they are unusual and make neat little cafe bikes. I like the look of the engines also... have a kind of old style MV look to them (to me anyway). From all the period tests I have read they run, corner, and stop pretty well. Well... as fast as 35 hp will go anyway :wacko: :wacko: ... The only reliability problems I have heard about were those plugs in the head....the desmos have more hp and are quite a bit faster.... according to period tests..... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Hello, I'm Stefano from Italy.
First, sorry for my bad English :cry:
I'm collecting 125cc motorbike of end '80 years as Cagiva, Gilera, Aprilia, Honda, HRD.
I've had in my mind Ducati Paso 750 (in my opinion the real PASO!), but I like ride the bike, so with 750 there are some problems about rear wheel, electric, and carburation. So a few months ago, I've found a 907 I.E. in special condition, and I've bought "her"!!!

I hope to find a lot fans of Paso....bye.

Welcome Stefano!!

The 907 is an excellent bike and is very nice to ride.

Your english is much better than my Italian and I come to Italy every year to ride for 2 weeks. I love riding there!!!
