DUCATI 2-VALVE V-TWINS:  THE COMPLETE STORY., Walker, Mick.

Author Name    Walker, Mick.

Title   DUCATI 2-VALVE V-TWINS: THE COMPLETE STORY.

Publisher    Crowood, Marlborough, 2000, first edition.

Seller ID   22726

176 pp, large 8vo (9 15/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1861263090 Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour. "The first Ducati V-twin, the prototype 750 GT, appeared in the summer of 1970. Since then the type has carved itself a special p lace in motorcycle history, on both the road and track....although majoring on models built from 1985 onwards, (this book) effectively charts the rise of the famous 90-degree V-twin from its earliest days to its current cult status. The ori g i n a l e n gine featured bevel-driven overhead camshafts, with or without the marque's legendary Desmo valve operation. Currently all Ducati V-twins employ both belt-driven overhead cams (pioneered by the Pantah series introduced at the end of th e 19 70 s) an d Desmo valve gear. The 2-valve family, which includes such well-known models as the F1/F3, Paso, Monster, Super Sport and ST2, is very much the affordable face of Ducati. Here, top-selling author and Italian bike specialist Mick Wa lk er cha rts the f ull story of these charismatic machines, including their design and development. Besides the technical detail, Mick Walker also introduces the personalities involved in the evolution of the Ducati 2-valve V-twin story, men suc h a s M assi mo B o rdi, Pi erre Terblanche, Fabio Taglioni, Paul Smart and Tony Rutter, to name but a few." Very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear, very light rubbing . Ne ar F ine/ Very Good
