1969 Ducati Mark 3 450cc
Desmo NO LONGER for sale. This is a completely and professionally rebuilt
(all engine work done by Rich Lambrechts) bike. It has a very
desirable Desmo head (unlike some singles that come with regular
spring valves one) and tons of racing upgrades. Most notable 4LS
230mm Grimeca brake in front, 29mm SS1 racing carb, Excell rims,
Tommaselli clip-ons, and the original (not replica) fairing.
Lucas Rita 12V electronic
ignition conversion, so the lights are bright and reliable.
Street legal/ registered in So Cal. Winner of Best Vintage at
Laguna Seca Ducati Island contest in 2009. The bike is
autographed by three famous Ducati racers of the era: Frank
Scurria, Cook Neilson, and Doug Polen.
Easily over 10K invested
without labor and the bike is worth close to that in parts
alone. It is fast and reliable for everyday rides or a showroom
centerpiece. Not a fire sale, just contemplating a new project.
Would like to sell locally, but can arrange shipping at buyer's
cost. E-mail with any questions.
