73 Ducati 350 widecase for race/street

1973 Ducati 350 widecase single built for AHMRA vintage class racing with one track session and less than 250 miles on rebuilt engine. This bike has a clean NYS title, street-legal and is currently registered. As with all race bikes it has been built for competition with assorted parts. It is a SCR frame with a 350 springer engine (non-desmo) and reproduction fiberglass bodyparts. Original build was completed Williamsville Competition. Street conversion completed by Motorcycle Center who built 500 GP Premier single for Jimmy Adamo back in the 80's. Conversion work includes kick start mechanism (w/pivoting rear set to clear kickstart), front headlight, tail light, rear-brake lever actuated brake light, DYNA electronic ignition and sidestand. I have spare parts (extra megaphone exhaust, Smith tach/speedo (unused! new/old stock), centerstand (will require fabrication to fit, and spare plugs that will be shipped to buyer and buyer's expense via shipper of choice. 350cc springer (non-desmo) Dual-plug head race spec motor SCR frame 5 speed / right shift Dyna electronic ignition Keyless ignition (there is a switch on the case to start... no key) 32mm Mikuni round slide carb Tomaselli fork Magura clip-ons Syd's megaphone exhaust with removable baffle Fiberglass tank + rear pillion (repro) Dunlop Elite tires with excellent tread Akront rims (front/rear) New plug wires + resistor caps Please be advised that this is a high-compression race spec motor that requires technique to kick over. It can also be bump started which requires 3 or 4th gear. I am only noting this for those of you with street intentions who have never tried to start a race motor before. Compression can be lowered by fitting steel gaskets under the head which will make kicking it over a breeze (I have them which come with the bike). Battery also discharges over the course of a week if bike is not kept on a tender. Because it was setup for total loss ignition, the bike will not get enough spark to start if battery is weak. My shop has indicated that the coil is getting tired and should be fitted with a new one. This is an inexpensive item and since it fits on the frame below the tank, it can be changed with minimal effort. This is a strong, quick, good-handling machine that is perfect for someone returning it to the track in AHRMA vintage class racing or for someone interested in a unique street bike. I am only looking to return my investment on the purchase of the bike which does not include the $1,500 I spent converting it for the street. The reserve is set for a very reasonable price just over $3,000 for a bike that cost much more than that to replicate. Feel free to call me with any "reasonable" questions. Please keep the obvious questions to a minimum.
