For fans of technique and beautiful mechanics, this TT2 really represents the best. We follow the stages of its restoration.
There are now few who have the technical skills and experience necessary to “get their hands” on such a particular object as that masterpiece of mechanical engineering that responds to the name of Ducati TT2, the fantastic racing bike that the Casa di Borgo Panigale set up at the beginning of the eighties taking advantage of the two-valve twin-cylinder with air cooling of the Pantah series.
Marco Mozzone, already known to our readers through some of the most significant testimonies of what he knows how to do, is one of them: in his workshop in Cairo Montenotte, between Liguria and Piedmont, Marco carries on an activity, or rather a profession, now represented by a very small number of people. Because to do what Mozzone does you have to be willing to sacrifice yourself, and so much, in the name of quality and precision that today, unfortunately, they almost no longer exist.
An example of this is this beautiful TT2 that the Savonese specialist has developed for one of his clients; beyond the general aesthetic result, remarkable in itself by virtue of the refinement and rarity of such a specimen, it is by looking closely at the work carried out by Mozzone that one realizes how valuable it has been able to add to such a prestigious base.
Every single detail has been disassembled, cleaned, processed, refurbired and, more importantly, reassembled to ensure it has a perfect condition of functionality. Where this “modus operandi”, for some reason, did not work, the process was repeated from the beginning, until the result reached the so-called state of the art.
After all, Marco is used to it and, if things are not exactly as he wants, he prefers not to do anything about it, that is why his eyes must have shone when he was presented with the opportunity to take care of one of the most exclusive racing bikes ducati has ever produced.
For him it was like finally having the right material on which to measure one’s talent, without any saving of either time or resources.
In short, for fans of technique and beautiful mechanics, this TT2 really represents the maximum, a concentration of solutions that deserve to be observed for hours, even just for the sake of admiring its ingenuity and masterful execution. We present them all, from the first to the last, through a roundup of images that illustrate better than any article the work of Marco Mozzone.
