Ducati Condor A350 by BevelTech
The Ducati Condor A350 before you, developed by the team at BevelTech, was originally built in Switzerland by Condor-Werke AG for the Swiss Military. The custom motorcycle now shows off the single-cylinder engine we usually see in the popular 350 Scrambler. As a result, costs were reduced while the final project benefited from a well-engineered motor with excellent parts, available on order. The 340.2cc Ducati engine is has 2 valves, is air-cooled, and it has a bevel gear driven single overhead camshaft, and develops anything from 8 hp to 16.6 hp. Why all of this? Well, by the end of the 1973 to 1978 production run, Condor-Werke AG had built only 3,000 examples, which is why people are going crazy over one these days.
The Ducati Condor A350 was built by Ducati specialist Tony Hannagan, who had been keeping the bike on his farm for years. After using it for herding sheep and general farm activities, it was in need for some TLC. It was completely stripped with nothing remaining but the original frame; the engine now shows off a ported head, new higher-flow carburetors, as well as alloy timing gears. The bespoke chromed unit uses the engine as a stressed member and stores the fuel reserve in the top tube. Also worth mentioning are the laser-cut engine mounting plates, the wheels and brakes sourced from an Aprilia RS125. All that work adds up to 29 hp and loads of fun.
