Description

Up for grabs is my 1966 ducati monza 250. this bike was custom painted back in the late 60's early 70's. it has super flaked green tank and panels and a purple/ magenta frame. It is a great little survivor piece and was untouched since the early 70's until a few months ago. it still had the original factory battery stamped 1966 when I got the bike and the original tires . I cleaned the bike. the valves where adjusted. oil changed. battery replaced. some conti attack street tires where put on. cables where lubed. brakes where cleaned and adjusted. and the bike fired right up within a few kicks. It starts up pretty easily (two kicks in 40 degree weather yesterday) and is a blast to drive. it gets a ton of attention. The bike has a good patina on it. the tank and covers look pretty decent. no real dents but definitely some imperfections and chips. the frame has some spots where the paint is gone but there are no holes that are rusted through or anything like that. take a good look at the pics please. The muffler section does have some holes in it (see in the pics). The badging on it was redone and then patina'd to match the rest of the paint and looks amazing (all hand done) and matches the era. The electrical system charges properly and the headlight and taillight come on when you flip the switch. the wiring is almost 50years old but isn't all rotted out. i put new leads on for the battery and cleaned the grounds and has had no issues. only issue with the electrical are that the horn doesn't work and the rear brake switch needs to be replaced. I picked this bike up with the intent to fully restore a ducati single. but after some cleaning i came to realize it is just too cool as it is to strip down and repaint and change it. so hopefully there is someone out there that will appreciate it for what it is. a cool old custom duc. This is an almost 50year old bike. and runs pretty well for being a un-restored old bike. the bones are solid and besides a little bit of carb tweaking that will probably need to be done. it is a great little sunday bike. please ask questions before bidding.  bill of sale only. buyer is responsible for shipping or pic up arrangements. happy bidding

I wanted to add that the insulation from the generator wires is pretty dry and inflexible. it isn't bad enough that wires are grounding out on anything. just wanted it to be known

Also. forgot to mention that the engine doesn't have and unknown noises or smoke a bunch or anything like that but it will smoke for a second when it is fist started up cold and then goes away. i have another bevel drive 350 and it does the same thing.
