1963 Ducati 250 Diana ~ SOLD

I restored this bike in 2004 and have ridden it several thousand miles since restoration.  This is a pre-Mark III model but the engine has been brought up to Mark III specs with a 5 speed bottom end.  The original 4 speed bottom end is included with the sale and the serial number matches the clear title.  All surfaces have been carefully restored.  There has been no blasting of aluminum parts, all have been cleaned and polished as original.  This bike has won many awards including best European Bike at Rocker Box, one of the largest vintage bike festivals in the Midwest.

Some more specifics:

  • Cylinder head ported to match 40mm intake valve, 34mm exhaust valve (don't remember the size for sure) and SSI 27 carb.

  • Mark III cam and piston.

  • Front brake relined with Ferodo linings and shoes turned per vintagebrake.com

  • 5 cell NimH battery, no acid.  Disconnect through tool box door.

  • Correct seven rib brake drums.

  • Correct painted spokes

  • Borrani WM1 and WM2 rims.  Correct pattern Chin Shen tires.

  • Good kickstart gears with upgraded spring.

  • Seat carcass and cover newly made.

  • Correct "stiletto" clutch and brake levers.  Very cool and not PC.

Engine has been rebuilt with all new bearings, seals, piston, valves and guides, etc. I have not ridden it in 4 years but squirted some gas in the carb and it fired right up.  It always started easily (without choke, there is no cable connected at present).  The tank is clean and dry.  The engine doesn't leak oil.  Feel free to display indoors but it would be more fun to ride it!

Title states 1964 but this is quite common in our area.  I will assist on shipping anywhere.  I have shipped two bikes to Australia with no problems.  I'll crate and deliver for actual costs to me, no additional fees.  I can often find a new motorcycle crate to use for shipping.  Bike is located in Milwaukee, WI.  I can deliver within 100 miles, no charge.

I'm selling because I'm going sailing.  Won't fit on the boat!

Price $12,800 or best offer.  SOLD SOLD SOLD
