Hey TT2...
What spec. are you measuring at the end of the crank? Are there other places you would do the same thing?
Thanks...

Not sure what you mean with measuring at the end of the crank, crank is a 650SL reworked, lightened and balanced by Pete Smith from Epicycle in Sydney.

Hi TT2...
I was referring to the picture of the dial indicator on the end of the crank.
Regards...

Ahh... because all we retained essentially are the cases (we went from wet 600 pantah to 750 dry clutch) everything is getting measured up and custom shimmed as the workshop manual has no relevance with this build.

Hi TT2...
After looking at it again, I thought it was a way of measuring for preload of the bearings.

Thank you...

Hey TT2........
Very cool......I hadnt seen some of your earlier posts.....it looks like about 2 years of build time?? Thats pretty fast by my book. When you get it running, how about a video so we can see it/hear it run. :D Congrats on the build......almost done!!!!!!

Thanks Clay, will put up some video once its running. Hope to have it at the Phillip Island Classic in January. Yeah took 2 years, biggest delays where heads and crank. Sourcing wheels and the swing arm also proved quite the challenge.

Full build pics are at http://www.ducati.org/forums/vintage/65 ... build.html I had 3 x TT projects on the go. This one is the case up rebuild from TL engine to race 750, the others were bog stock 600SL build and I have another nearing completion at 650SL engine spec, but not a high end race build.

The other is my beastly Radical Ducati RAD02 1100cc that has been a long term project, nearly done. I'll be torn between the RAD02 and the TT1 at track days.

YES, I see you will have some tuff choices on what to ride :D You have done a few of these TT'S. I have an F1 that I picked up in one big chunk, so I cant relate to what it costs to build a TT. Whats the rough estimate on how much it costs to, build a reasonably nice TT.

Really nice machines TT2! Congratulations! Clay that is one loaded question. It's all about what you want. Buy a frame, bodywork, tank, some clipons, a shock, and an allazura. Couple of weekends and you're good to go for under $10k. Of course this never happens but it can. Just a paint job can run you a ton of money. Stock engine vs speedy engine. Again I am sure people on this forum have spent thousands on just motor work and parts, Campy or Marvic wheels, this list never ends. $15 to $20k for a snazzy replica, again plus labor. Now if you want a perfect replica with all the original goodies, NCR clutch, exhaust, mag forks, real Veglia techs are getting crazy money. This biggest problem is trying to find the original bits. This takes years. Thanks to all our friends who are making replica parts, it makes it easier than it was a few years ago. Some years back I built a really authentic looking replica. It had all the good bits even an NCR motor. What I thought was a lot of money back then now seems too cheap. Lou
