Ducati 450 RT
NB THIS BIKE IS ROAD REGISTERED! As a background, the Ducati Scrambler was the brand name for a series of single cylinder scrambler motorcycles made by Ducati for the American market from 1962 until 1974. Its creation is attributed to the American Berliner Motor Corporation. Models were produced in 250 cc through to 450 cc displacements. The 450 variant was sold as the "Jupiter" in the United States. The first Scramblers (1962-1967) were derived from street-legal models, and featured "narrow case" engines with lightly altered frames. It originally derived from a Ducati Diana road bike converted by Michael Berliner for dirt-track racing in America. These Scrambler models all had a maximum engine capacity of 250cc, and are generally referred to as "narrow case Scrambler(s)" Our Ducati is of the second series, using a wider engine case. Frames were modified with experience derived from Bruno Spaggiari's Ducati factory racing motorcycles. Scrambler 125 (1970-1971) Scrambler 250 (1968-1975) Scrambler 350 (1968-1975) Scrambler 450 (1969-1976) Desmo R/T 450 (1970-1971 This 1971 exceptional 450 DM example (Desmo) looks hardly used and we assume has been fully restored and whilst the majority were yellow, Ducati produced a limited number in Orange (as we have here). The last owner was a collector and it could either be used or be a show piece - it is that beautiful. We have just had the bike tuned and checked over by a Ducati specialist - it starts on the button and sounds FANTASTIC. Chassis and engine numbers in place with matching registration document. Original Borani wheels..
