Radical Ducati Pantah

This gorgeous reinterpretation of the original Ducati Pantah 500 is the latest from Spanish firm Radical Ducati. It’s actually based on a mid-‘80s Cagiva Alazurra 350 (which used Ducati engines before Cagiva took over Ducati completely), but with a modified Paso 750 engine, one-off rear end, 851 forks and mudguard, Ducati Monster wheels, Pantah-style fiberglass tank and solo seat by RAD...

Proper

Light lithe sweet little two valve dukes (preferably with a big engine) are just so much fun.

Odd isn't it that the first two posters have made up their minds on how the bike will ride based simply on a photograph.

Paint only

I bet there isn't a single component from a Pantah on that bike, it has a look-a-likey paint job, that's all.

Looks like a parts bin special from an upmarket breaker's yard.

I did love the old pantah...

I did love the 1980s Pantah from a far (not in my league as a student) and this definitely has the fairing & tank shape but the rest...

And again we hear from somebody who is only interested in the appearance of a bike. The frame has obviously been hacked about, the tubes behind the rear cylinder are clearly different from the original Alazzura. The reason for this is clearly that they've used too long a shock and therefore had to put the top mount above the rear head. This has resulted in their having to raise the frame tubes at the rear and also the silly looking cut out in the rear of the tank. And of course the seat is higher than it needs to be. Look at the old TTF2 bike and you'll see that the shock is shorter, as a result the mount is behind the rear head and so the rear end is lower. And is it just me or does that swingarm look longer than standard? Looks like a bit of a lashup of a conversion that started with a particular shock rather than specifying the shock to suit the conversion.

Piroflips right

Jollyboy, you infer from your arrogant comment that your knowledge is superior; don't be such a bore, there aint nothing wrong, at all,. with admiring a bike just for its asthetics.

1 - 0 to piroflip; that Duke looks awesome.
