Check your local Ducati Dealer you will be amazed what they still have hidden away.

Also check this site out http://www.twowheelclassics.co.uk/ they may be of some use to you.

After a long discussion with the guys up at Marzzochi North America in Valencia California ( 1 661-257-6630) about my 90 750 Sport front forks they did a little research for me. Called me back about a week later and informed me that the bushings used in these forks are the same as used on the early Monsters. part no. 538028>B. I ordered two sets from them, had them installed and they have worked perfectly for a little over 800 miles now.

At the same time I ordered a set of progresive rate springs from Hyperpro in Werkendam, Holland, http://www.hyperpro.com +31 183-678867. Forkspring 0205 X, Part no. SP-DU07-SWB003. These were installed at the same time as the new bushings and naturally a new set of fork seals.

The front suspension is smooth in both compression and rebound. I have not had a case of bottoming out since I undertook the rebuild. No leaks, no squeaks, no problems! :)

Cheers,
