Found on eBay: 1973 Ducati 450 Mark 3



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.

The one I bought brand new in 74 had clip on handle bars and double leading shoe double drum front brakes double leading shoe single drum on the rear. Not shore when they changed the design. I paid $460 new on the road then and sold it a year later for $700. Probably worth $7K today.
