Ducati Day – 3 and 4 of 5
The Ducati Elite was the Italian firm’s largest-displacement bike when it was introduced – a whopping 204cc when they bored out the popular 175cc engine. The bevel-driven single produced 18 horsepower, but because the bike weighed 230 pounds it could hit nearly 90 miles per hour and return 70 miles per gallon. It had a four-speed transmission and 18 inch wheels front and rear. Here we’ve got two examples of the breed – one in blue and one in red. Choose wisely!
The blue bike is a ’61 with 6,100 miles. It’s been restored and has Borrani Record WM2 rims and a single Silentium pip as featured on the Elite SS. It seems that everything is original and factory, and it apparently won first place at a concourse, but no details are given.

The red Elite is a ’64 model, and the solid paint job accentuates the insane curves of the jelly mold tank. This specific bike (VIN: 156339) has 5,780 miles and it seems everything works, though the paint and chrome are claimed to be “not as perfect as new.”
