    my dad has a 65 ducati something in our storage unit. it was his when he was around 18...its just sitting in storage, im sure if i rebuilt some parts of it it would be restored, he told me nothing is really wrong with it besides it needs to be put togher, cleaned up a little....he told me when he was around 18 he stole a bigger engine from another ducati in the neighborhood, but he got caught once he was seen riding around with it in his bike, so he had to return it and luckily no charges were pressed since it was neighbors
    from what i remember last time i was at our storage unit, it looked something like this

    :rofl: I love old stuff, cars and bikes, for things like that. The fact that you can just jack another engine, just hook it up and ride around with it. It would be a mess today with electronics and stuff :hs:

    I want one, BTW.... an old, good-looking bike. That Ducati's sweet.

    I'm rebuilding a ducati single right now. They are sweet little single cylinder engines. If yours is a scrambler it should have a different tank, longer forks, and more like dirt style handlebars than the bike in the pic. Scramblers were kind of a dual sport for dirt and street. Yet, you can imagine how great it was for dirt with only 3 inches of shock in the rear. If your dad's has been stored it is probably in good shape and wouldn't need much to just get cleaned up, gone through, and running.

    The pic you have was the street version with clip-ons. It looks like the "Diana" model.

    My neighbor, my father in-law and I are all restoring single cylinder bikes right now. 2 ducs and an old BSA. It's nice because they are so simple. Not many parts.

    If you want more info go to bevelheaven.com
    There is a whole community over there.

    Nice find!!
