G'day, From Oz.
Well, after years of looking I've finally got myself a TT2. To say I'm pleased is an understatment!
The bike has not been used since the 90's and has just been hanging in the previous owners workshop.
My plan is to get it running as is, then tear it down for a rebuild ready for the track.
It has a 750 Bottom end with 600 top end.
It's also running Yamaha TZ250 Wheels and discs with Brembo Goldline 05 Calipers.
One question I have is the top frame rail is cut and has the seat tube inserted and welded into it. I'm sure I've seen this before but does anybody else have a frame like this? Who made it?

Anyway, I'm sure I'll be harrasing everyone with heaps of questions over the coming months.

Cheers,
Corsa.

I saw that bike on bikesales.com.au and if I'd had the cash at the time I would have to tried to have got it for myself, so congratulations! A very interesting project, and a very cheap way to get into a TT2. Are you going to keep it as a track bike or convert into a road-going hot-rod?

G'day, John.
Yes, I couldn't believe it when I saw the ad, and I must say the previous owner is a lovely bloke, loves his Ducati's like the rest of us.

Yes, the bike will be a track only bike, I've been looking to get into the Forgotten Era period 5 class for a while, so it was just mean't to happen I guess.

Another question for everyone, am I right in thinking that there is a 750cc limit in period 5? Then it jumps to Unlimited with a 1300cc limit?
So do I go 600, or 750 or Unlimited?
And if that's the case, what are my options for bore and stroke combinations? My bike at the moment has 750 Pantah cases, but I believe the 600cc crank inside with 86mm 12:1 pistons, so about 670ish cc?
What's a good combo that won't explode!!! lol..

Thanks again.
