Companion to the Bevel Twin books in the Bible series


Classic 750, 860, 900 and Mille bevel-drive twins from 1971-1986 are now amongst the most collectable bikes worldwide. Although built in relatively small numbers, there are many model differences that can make their authentic restoration difficult. This book serves as a definitive guide, and gives hands-on restoration tips and guidance.


Production of Ducati Bevel Twins spanned 15 years, and nowadays a restored bike with original parts will be worth about double the value of one with the wrong parts/detailing. There have been so many variations over the years that most people have no idea what is correct for a particular model. A would-be buyer's first question is always "how authentic is the bike?", not whether it is beautifully restored. So this book is a comprehensive guide to authenticity. The content includes colour codes, stripe widths, decal placement, etc. The practical chapters are by necessity broad. For instance, there were five fork types, more than five shock absorber types (many not rebuildable), more than five brake types and ten different frame types. These practical chapters cover little tricks in assembly and offer general advice rather than a detailed workshop manual-type description.
