Unrestored and in nice usable shape, this 1973 Ducati 450 looks like good clean fun to us.

A rare motorcycle, only 350 examples of the 450 Mark 3 were made in 1973, with a total of just 613 made in the Mark 3's production run from 1973-1974. The bike features Marzocchi forks, Borrani alloy rims with stainless spokes. Largely stock except for the addition of a K&N Air Filter, period Girling rear shocks, Japanese seal-beam headlight assembly, and  a toggle-type headlight switch on headlight shell, the bike would make a great rider. The seat has been recovered in the original pattern. According to the owner, lights and all controls and gauges work as they should.
