The Ducati 125 Sport special have just finished a restoration. We have tested it and it runs OK but will be even better with some fine tuning of carburetor and ignition. We can´t test it further for the moment as we have snow here.
The model was only sold in Swden to our knowledge and is rare here, in the rest of the world it is almost unseen.
In Sweden Before 1969 sixteen year olds were allowed to drive "light" motorcycles. Regulations for this was maximum 75 kilograms with filled fuel tank. The tank can only hold 3,5 liter of petrol.
This was the only fourstroke that a Swedish sixteen year old could ride in the fifties and sixties.
In 1948 the SRM was designed by Folke Mannerstedt who also constructed the famous racing Husqvarna V-Twins Before the war.
The SRM had 3 hp more than the JAP, revved 500 rpm more and is 10 kilos lighter. The most famous SRM was used by norwegian champion Leif "Basse" Hveem in longtrack where he won almost everytime he raced against the Scandinavian elite.
Engine is totally renovated and ready to start with some work with Cables, hoses etc.
Exhaust pipe is missing

SRM Speedway Engine built from NOS parts and completed with new made parts from original pattern by well known Husqvarna V-Twin replica fabricator Gösta Svensson.
The Engine has never been started.
SRM stands for Svensk (Swedish) Racer Motor and they were constructed by Folke Mannerstedt made in small numbers in the late forties. The use of magnesium made the engine very light, about 10 kilos less than the JAP speedway Engine but it was a bit fragile. Norwegian driver and tuner Basse Hveem was probably the most successful user and took many victorys in Scandinavian Long track races with his SRM, he was called the "King of Solvalla" after numerous wins at the biggest race in Sweden.
It is equipped with a BTH magneto, carburator is missing.
Price Engine 6900 euro
Drott Long Track or Ice Racing 2 speed gearbox, NOS, never used, 950 euro, the Drott gearbox is sold, no longer available.
Top Quality renovation done for twenty years ago. After the work was done it has been in a museum since.
Only driven about 10 kilometers after renovation so it will probably need some adjustment Before it runs perfect.
Been in the same family since 1956 and there are some documentation coming with the TWN including original riders manual, receipts and more.
The facts known about this engine is that it came to Sweden for over 30 years ago from an american dealer of used motorcycles and parts. I have done some research and have with help from the well known Triumph expert Claudio Sintich got this info.
T100SC H36489 was built on 25th September 1964 and dispatched to Johnson Motors, Pasadena, USA on 27th September 1964.
This is a 1965 model year machine and in a large batch of T100SC bikes for America. There are no special interest notes in the factory record for this bike separately now. This probably means that your engine was prepared for racing by Johnson motors and used for dirttrack.
This engine looks more "works" than Triumphs own works engines. It has welded inlets and also a welded reinforcement around the gearbox. It has some kind of surface treatment that are almost black. The double breathers are rarely seen. The engine is missing some minor parts but will need an major overhaul.
