1975 Ducati 860

Runs a rides great. Pre-electric start model. I bought the bike about 5 years ago from a friend that had taken it apart to replace the swing arm bushings and then never reassembled it. It sat in his garage for 10 years collecting dust before I got my hands on it. It's never going to win a show but it's a fun bike that you can work on as you go and still turn heads when you take it out for a ride.

The tank is a Syds fiberglass Sport tank and SS seat is a Syd's as well. Tank Has been lined with Caswell. I bought the Imola high pipes from an outfit in Australia. The pipes have baffles so they are not crazy loud but not exactly quiet either. Terozzi rear sets on home made mounting plates. Work done in the last 1500 miles includes rebuilt forks with Race-Tech emulators, new Works Performance shocks with special valving specified by Bevel Heaven, swing arm bushings, New front discs, braded SS brake lines, Rebuilt Master Cylinder, New front caliper and brake pads, Speedo drive and cable, tach cable.

There are areas that will need attention like;
Shift linkage is sloppy and it's sometimes difficult to hit third gear the first time. I had planned on converting back to right side shift at some point.
All the electrics work but the wiring is pretty terrible. The fuse block needs replacing.

 * There is a big slit right in the middle of the seat.
 * The clutch drags when the engine is cold.
 * Nicks and dings in the paint.
 * Incorrect ignition switch.
 * I have taken the bike on some local multi-day vintage bike tours (Moto Melee, Nor-Cal-TT) and bike has always run flawlessly.
 * I have a box with a few spare parts that goes with the bike. A pair of original side covers, original side stand, aftermarket 2-1 pipe.
 * California Title in my name, Reg. is currently on Non-Op.
 * Bike is located in San Francisco Ca.
 * Local Buyers are welcome to come check the bike out in person.
