The engine has a fully Tuftrided crank, titanium con rod, big Ducati race valves, valve spring conversion to coils from hairspring, full race fairing. The bike was purchased in 1987, rode a couple of times in regularity events , then it was left in the garage due to the last owners poor health.
It’s “not running” due to it needing either a starter or a lot of pushing to start. When it was being started regularly it was not too bad to push start but as it has been stood for some time , will need a good overhaul .”
This is a rare machine and they seldom come up for sale , so a great , easy to handle project . There is a log showing many details stating the engine number as DM 250 00210 ( The sixth listed engine known on the Bevel Heaven Website ! )and notes stating safe to rev to 10,000 RPM ! Standard bore , standard Alpha big end , mains Standard 3 bearing Ducati forged piston , 10.96 to 1 Compression ,1 down , 4 up gears , starting instructions , fairing ; proper Ducati racing , etc . Producing over 30 HP And Well Over 100 mph !!
This Is A Battle Scarred, Well Campaigned, Historic Italian Race Bike, That Would Also Make A Great Display Piece, Though It! Would Be Great To See It Back On The Track!
