The Opposite Of Stock: Ducati 1036CS Built By Alex Ortner (1999 Ducati 996)
I hate to admit it but I didn’t even know what I was looking at for a few minutes when I first saw this bike. If you like bikes box stock then look away quickly. If you like bikes modified to the hilt then sit back and enjoy. I can sum the bike up in a few words: carbon fiber, titanium and magnesium.

If you lost track while adding on your abacus, that adds up to over $94,000 in parts.
Obviously, the carbon frame smacks you in the face. Anyone who even has the slightest interest in anything high tech has to appreciate the time and labor that went into the frame. It was built by Carbo Tech Composites which is known for its’ work in F1. The photo above is from Alex Ortner’s own site which documents the build.
I won’t pretend to know the technical details but here is a bit of info from DucCutters.com which did an article on the bike.
First to go was the steel frame, replaced by a carbon-fiber Carbo Tech frame from Karl Wagner Carbo Tech Composites in Salzburg, Austria. Made from T700, T800 and M40J carbon-fiber, the same material Carbo Tech uses for the Williams F1 cars. The twin spar frame weighs 6.5 kilograms, including the sub-frame, compared to the stock 11.5 kilograms. Longitudinal stiffness is claimed to be 100% improved the steel frame and torsional stiffness 50% over the steel frame
That is some serious tech porn; again from Alex Ortner’s website.
Too bad the engine is stock huh? Of course I’m lying through my teeth. The engine has been seriously massaged and pumped up from Alex’s original build. The bike is now pumping out 155HP thanks to the tuning of Doug Lofgren at CommonWealth Motorcycles. By the way, over $12,000 was spent on the rebuild.
Custom carbon airbox is twice the size of a Corsa box. Photo is again from Alex Ortner.
Did you catch the fact that the forks were off Mat Mladins 1999 GSXR? Someone took advantage of the claiming rule so they could eventually find their way to this Duc. If this is the same set I’m thinking about, I remember there was quite a story when this took place. Of course they were totally rebuilt and set up for this particular bike.
In all honesty you need an entire webpage to go over everything that has been done to this motorcycle. I’ve simply supplied you with a teaser. If the tech specs haven’t fried your brain you can contact the seller directly to see about fulfilling your carbon dreams.
Asking price: $85,000 OBO
