A beautifully restored Ducati that the seller knows inside out. A fantastic eBay listing, too. We’ve included a snippet below, but the entire listing is far more detailed.
From the seller: “The bike has been subject to a full strip and rebuild from the crankshaft up, including all the electrics and paintwork. There is nothing wrong with it, I just feel that I’ve just had my fun restoring and riding it over the last 9 years and now want to try something else. I’ll happily talk anyone through the full details of the comprehensive, documented and photographed restoration if you are genuinely interested in purchasing.
In summary, the bike is a genuine 1959 Italian model (dating certificate from the late, renowned Ducati expert Mick Walker), it is fully UK registered in my name and the V5C is present (so no messing about with NOVA certificates and registration with the DVLA). It obviously classifies as an Historic Vehicle, so there is no road-tax to pay or MOT required. However, I did have it MOT’d on completion of the restoration just for peace of mind but needless to say it passed first time with no advisories. It has been subject to a full restoration, both mechanical, electrical and cosmetic from the crankshaft up. It’s done a genuine 3600 odd miles since a full engine strip and rebuild, though this may rise slightly as I’m still riding it on sunny days.”
