Hi Marc, isn't the swingarm pivot a different diameter as well as the crankcase width? Lou

Alloy swing arm, with eccentric adjusters.
I know the rubber chain protector looks shit, but I had to put something on in a hurry ..........we were leaving that afternoon[
Stronger than an old Verlicchi especially for competition use.

I used an alloy 900ss swingarm and splayed the footrest brackets out a little with a hydraulic jack to make it clear the peg hangers.

The CroMo Verlicchi is packed away as it didn't fit the 5.5" rim I stuffed in

Hello Fran. Is that what you are looking for? I am. I call it a TT1 arm, but I know that is not technically correct; those also look different. These show up on fleaBay now and then. Lou might recognize one of these photos. Last one went for over $750 out of the land of beer, sausages and suspenders.

Hello Guys,
I was hoping that this date would come.
Does anyone know the seller of green verlicchi TT2 swing arm in the picture that 618F1 posted? My entire Ducati collection including this swing arm was auctioned out to the public without no former notification to me back in 2006, probably by the manager of the Public Storage back then.
When I contacted the storage on September 2006, it was too late and everything other then my Montjuich and ’86 F1-750 were gone and nobody (I mean not even the head quarter management of PS) understood what happened to my collection.
I paid the unpaid rent balance to PS and got my two bikes released immediately, but I still do not feel right about this auction.
I appreciate your feedback.
Thanks!!

Look, I'm sorry Lou, but I didn't reply because I hadn't seen your post.

It is a Metmachex arm, and they will make you one

salut,

Dick

I dont know much about this, but I came across a couple of different tt/f1 swingarms on www.oldracingspareparts.com the other day - are these any good?

Gosh, I just got sick to my stomach reading your post Matsumoto.

I think 618F1 just copied that pic off Ebay last year, I hope somebody wanders through here and knows who bought it.

Glad you were able to keep your 2 bikes.

Are you coming to Barber in Oct. ?

JMC in the UK are also still in business as far as I know. They are possibly not quite as adventurous as Metmachex but DO have a aluminium swingarm which is a replica - albeit a tad beefier - of the 750SS/900SS items. I would try to post a picture of their arm, but after my last attempt at this, i needed to go and lie down in a darkened room............................... :? :? :?

Yo Poisonio,

If you adjust the size of your upload picture beforehand, click the "Upload Attachment" button on the Post A Topic (or Reply, also) choose and then upload it.
It seems to work fine...

Any more details on JMC to help us find them?


Thank you,

Fran
