Commonwealth Motorcycle 1985 Ducati F1 project

We are just beginning with this F1 750 Desmo build, considering paint schemes, blueprinting the engine, building the exhaust, fabricating and fitting bodywork. Really this is where the fun starts, recreating a world class vintage classic. Stay tuned and we will post our progress

The 750F1 was first released in 1985 and represented a major departure from any production Ducati up until that time.
The F1 signalled a change in the way future Ducatis would be built, and introduced a range of features, many of which continue into todays production range.The F1 was hugely desirable it was the first production Ducati to use the minimalistic Verlicchi frame, mono-shock rear suspension, fully floating disc brakes front and rear, alloy fuel tank, remote oil cooler, and two into one exhaust system.

The Ducati F1A and F1B were true race replicas, street-going versions of the first of the “rubber band racers,” the four-time world champion 600ccTT2. The TT2 was built for the 1981 Formula 2 World Championship. With British racer Tony Rutter on board, they won not only the 1981 championship, but the 1982, 1983 and 1984 championships as well. In 1982, Fabio Taglioni, chief of design, and Franco Fame, race team boss, decided to develop concurrently a 750cc racer to compete in Formula 1.
