Colin Seeley and the Ducati 500GP

Talk of the Ducati 750SS brings us back to Colin Seeley, seen here with the Ducati 500GP. It was quick enough to occasionally best Ago and the MV, but Fabio Taglioni always insisted it was a development project for a road going 750 V-twin. He also recognised his limitations as a frame designer and brought Seeley on board, whose signature touches are all over the frame - and the swing arm, with Seeley’s usual obsession with a robust support for the back axle and chain adjustment. Although the diagonal frame bracing didn’t make it into production Taglioni shamelessly copied Seeley’s swing arm design for the 750 and 900SS. More on this, and the development of the belt drive to the cams in Benzina 14
