Hello,

I am in the proces of building a replica Ducati pantah racebike.
At the moment i am designing the rear suspension for this classic bike.
After studing the pictures of Tony Rutter's Pantah i wonderd why the shock was mounted vertical?
I found some info about th owner Sports Motorcycles telling me that maxton worked on the suspension parts for this bike.
Do you have any information about this bike from the year 1981?

Kind regards Remco

Reply from Maxton

"Remco
Yes we did work on that bike in 1981. It was a modification carried out for the Isle of Man TT. We moved the bottom shock pick up forwards to soften the shock absorbers. We did not supply the twinshocks. We also strengthened the swing arm and frame to suit the new shock position.

Today we would not move the bottom pick, we would simply respring or revalve the shock absorbers softer. Then it was very difficult to get the shock absorber manufacturers to do this. We manufacture our own twinshocks now, so it is very easy!

Best regards

Richard Adams

Maxton Engineering"
