Build up of 1990 Ducati 851 corsa .

Giancarlo Fallapa
1990 851 Corsa No6
Round 13 Zeltweg ... Osterreichring circuit crashed badly in practice
after going (Fallappa says ) 1.8 faster than lap record !

First place at donnington , second at Jerez and 3rd at Hockenheim round .
Finishing the year in 11th place with 94 points from a few rounds !

Giancarlo Fallappa crashed this chassis at Zeltweg in 1990 WSB . Chassis was bought at Auction from Ducati factory in 2000 at the WDW ducati auction .
Corsa Engine based on Ducati corsa motor supplied to Bimota for their Tesi race project .
Other Corsa parts bought to complete bike .

Giancarlo signed frame for me at the auction , Ducati supplied the paperwork to authenticate the Chassis for me inc auction brochure .

Bike is getting a sympathetic rebuild , not a restoration , to 1990 spec - inc leaving the fork dents in the front frame rails , after having the frame checked out ...
The paint is after all the original factory paint !

original 50mm Farne front pipe system found and new termis just arrived from Italy special order from the factory !

found the alloy rear seat subframe and period rearsets from Menani , look just right .

next on new old stock carbon fairings I've had for a few years or so ...

Still looking for some parts if anyone has anything corsa wise ?

Cheers Steve .
