Ducati Super 750 cc Pantah Racer Build, Post #2

Posted by Scot Wilson on


At Italianiron & BritIron Classics, let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" is not just a slogan but a commitment, whether you are building a vintage TT or Pantah racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or restoring a Norton Commando or Manx racer. We offer a comprehensive, specialty portfolio of Ducati TTPantah, F1, and Norton engine, chassis and bodywork kits to our customers worldwide. Shown above is a photo of the late, great, Tony Rutter in front of the old Two Wheel Classics, Warrington, England location surrounded by racers that he and Pat Slinn made famous. We passionately support the sport of motorcycle racing with our race-tested, quality spares that are faithful copies of Tony's famous racers and bits. We completely understand our enthusiastic customers whose heart beats "rev", like ours do, when they hear a masterfully tuned vintage Pantah race engine. Do know that we have in stock, fuel tanks, full fairings, half fairings and windscreens for your racing or street legal Pantah for those who want to build their dream Ducati Pantah.



Pat Slinn has commented that the Ducati Pantah engine is one of his favourite Ducati engines. I would agree with Mr Slinn and would add that it takes a great deal to compete with the appeal of the "bark" of a Ducati bevel drive engine but a well tuned Pantah engine can also do that!!  For our Super Pantah build, we will be using a Paso 750 cc engine with our rear Ducati Pantah 750 cc cylinder head. Our rear Pantah cylinder heads are cast in L169 aluminum alloy, before being milled on state of the art 5 axis CNC machines. Inlet & exhaust ports have been designed using cutting edge Compuational Fluid Dynamics software by our engineers and are machined on the CNC to give optimum performance, maximum flow and consistency across all of our cylinder heads. A dual plug rear head is also available upon request and for a minimal additional charge. Our rear Pantah cylinder head is fitted with "Lead Free" valve seats, Colsibro guides and a pair of 1 piece forged valves, manufactured to much higher quality standards than other variants on the market today.


We are also very excited to use Malossi manifolds from Malcolme at Syd's Cycles to mount our 36 mm SmartCarb2 flat-slides to bring massive performance enhancements to our vintage Ducati 750 cc engine!! Stay tuned for videos of this engine once we have it complete and on the dyno. Thanks additionally to Pat Slinn for his guidance and recommendations to take a "one-off" TWC chrome-moly Pantah race frame to reinforce it to accept our Ducati 750 cc race prepped engine without compromise as we are massive fans of Formula 750 and BOTT vintage racing machines. At Italianiron.com, we do have OEM Cagiva Alazzurra frames for purchase for racers and many of these same OEM frames with valid US titles for that Ducatisti who is passionately building an exciting street bike. However, we are currently not offering chrome-moly Pantah frames at present as almost 100% of our customers elect to use our chrome-moly TT racing frames that are faithful copies of Tony Rutter's World Championship winning racers!!



As an organization that is committed to the sport of vintage motorcycle racing worldwide, one of our significant goals is to offer a wide range of quality windscreens for your vintage racers and street bikes. We offer these quality windscreens for such racers as the Ducati Pantah, TT 1, TT 2, F1, F3, Supersport as well as Norton Norvil & JPN windscreens, Seeley and Rob North Trident to name a few. We maintain a good number of our quality windscreens for Ducati TT and Norton items in stock. However, if there is a particular windscreen that you desire or even a windscreen for a particular Japanese racer, contact me at Italianiron7@gmail.com. Our windscreens are made of quality but pliable plexiglass with no need to use a heat gun to mount them to your front cowling. Currently we only offer clear versions of these windscreens. 



At Italianiron BritIron Classics, we offer a wide spectrum of race quality spares for the Ducati TT, Pantah, F1 racers as well as for the Norton Manx and Norton Commando racers. We also have a large amount of OEM items for vintage Ducati's and Nortons. Check out our Italianiron.com website for Ducati, TT, Molnar Manx and BritIron bits. We remain committed to supporting the world of Vintage Motorcycle Racing as well as to supporting those specialty bike builders as a supplier of quality chassis, bodywork and specialty racing spare parts. As mentioned before, at Italianiron.com, let us "Fuel Your Race Passions" is not just a slogan but a commitment whether you are building a vintage TT racer for competition, a Ducati F1 vintage street bike or a classic Norton Commando or Manx
