Hi

I am new member from Poland, about month ago I bought Ducati Paso 750. Firstly i was a bit skeptic about this bike, but when I saw it live i thought: "This is the most beautiful bike I've ever seen". And now it stand in my garage and I'm truly in love with it. :D It is unusual bike, very rare in my country. It engine makes amazing, beautiful noise. A true work of art.

My Paso is in quite good condition, but i have some problems with carburator I suppose, because spark plug in lying cylinder is wet and black all the time :dunno: or maybe it is something with badly adjusted valves. I don't know for sure yet...
I hope, I will handle with it but now, I have lack of free time :(

Gretings to all Paso maniacs ;)

P.S. sorry for my poor english, I'll be working on it.

The same thing happened to me on 1986 when I was 18.
My love keeps on :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: .
Ciao

Most underated Ducati ever made :? :? . Great to tour on and good to go fast on. 16' wheels...... great for making transitions in a series of curves. Just tap your brakes while exiting a curve..... the bike stands up...... then slam it down the other way for the next curve. Verrry easy and little or no flinging it around, it does the work for you :shock: :shock: . Also it is the cheapest ,most reliable Bimota that money can buy :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: . Mine draws a crowd where ever I go :cool: :cool: . One of my favorite Ducs of all time :!: :!: :!: .

My PT's are still not running either. Seems like every weekend something else gets in the way. :-(

This winter tho for sure.

Took my PT mostly apart today. Three more bolts and the engine will drop leaving only the frame. Clean, sandblast, then paint..... and back together. Also cleaned lots of nuts and bolts, and started detailing the rear wheel (about 2/3 done). Mounted new Pirelli tires earlier in the week. Tomorrow.... check and repair wiring harness, take frame to blaster, polish triple trees, fix fairing mounts for 1/2 fairing, and maybe polish the stainless fenders :shock: :shock: :shock: . I wanna' get this one done before cold weather sets in..... I hope :lol: :lol: :lol: .

Hello.
I am from France,a small town fifty kilometer east from Paris.
I own a Ducati 750 sport (1990).
I'm 55 years old and I ride also my Suzuki bandit 650.
As you can see,my english is not very good.
I hope i'll progress with you as I'll have some questions to ask you in a few time.
Have a good day.
