We featured Nick's Baines Imola 900SS in Issue Four of the magazine - it's a beautiful bike and fantastic to ride.
They don't seem to come up for sale often, so here's one that is. Bob Hedges emailed us and sent some pics of his lovely Baines Imola, which is bike number 6. Wish we had the money.
Bob's description is below, and you can email Bob directly here for any more information including price. The bike is here in the UK.
1993 904cc Ducati Baines Imola Special
Donor Bike: Ducati 900 Superlight
Starting out life as a 1993 904SL, this machine was converted using the well known Baines Racing Project-Imola kit. The kit sought to emulate the style and nimble feel of the bevel drives whilst retaining the performance, reliability and simplicity of the modern 900SS belt drive machines. A lofty ideal that appears to have been achieved in this achingly beautiful machine. The Baines kit consists primarily of the bodywork, frame, swinging arm and sub frame along with pegs, levers, exhausts, aluminium fuel cell etc, a full specification is supplied in the history file. The modification was carried out by the vendor and then checked over by Baines Racing. The engine was also worked on with new bearings, seals and belts and Arais race pistons, paintwork was carried out by Morley Brothers of Milton and the over all result is suitably head turning bearing the plaque “No.6 Baines Imola”. Much more than a collection of parts the black and gold 80BHP Ducati is offered for sale with receipts, MOT and tax and V5C documentation.
The bike has recently undergone a cosmetic refurbishment: new paint, stainless steel bolts and bight nickel frame by Harris Performance.
