Post-Listing Update: Apparently, I’m the only person in the the world who likes this bike. It didn’t get any action at $4,950 – let’s see if the seller lowers the opening bid of if he/she just gives up on selling it for a while.
The seller calls this bike “what you would build if you were not so worried that you were destroying the value of that wonderful vintage Ducati. It is what you would have done if you had the money when you were 18, and had this bike in 1966.” I like it – hopefully you do, too.
The frame is from a ’65 Scrambler (that’s been de-tabbed and cleaned up), but the rest of the parts are from a variety of Ducati singles. Goodies include several new parts: period Marzocchi forks, Works shocks, high comp piston and Ducati race cam, and a 32mm carb. As part of a new rebuild (20 miles), the head has been ported. The only flaw is a nick in the paint on the right side of the tank. Or if you’re a purist, this bike is full of flaws. I’m not a purist, so I think of this as a bike that you have no reason to be scared of getting dirty.
