BELIEVED TO BY THE ONLY 250 SPRINT IN THE UK
The 250 Sprint is most probably one of the rarest bikes
to ever leave the Ducati Factory
would make a fantastic addition for any serious motorcyle collector
only a handfull ever built - if you know any different please let me know - I have been riding bikes since
1960 and have not come across another one like this.
249 cc SOHC single – wide case- twin spark head
Five gears right hand change
Engine: DM 250 M3 110249
Ducati 250 Widecase Race / Parade bike. This little bike is a real gem. The bike has not been used in anger (racing) for some years but has been started regularly
and would make an ideal Hill Climb / Parade / Show bike as is. Originally from a motorcycle collection in Italy and was built to a very high spec -here is a brief list:
Cerriani forks and rear shocks - Grimeca front and rear brakes
Tomaselli levers and controls - Borriani alloy rims
Twin plug cylinder head - Dry clutch - Veglia racing rev counter
This is a fine example of the 250 Sprint ‘bare-bones,’ wide-case 250 which was built for sprint racing and hill climbs. Hill climbing was a very popular form of motorcycle racing
in the rolling Tuscan Hills during the 1960s and 1970s. The Ducati singles were a popular choice amongst enthusiasts, as they were both competitive and regularly successful.
The SOHC engine is fitted with a significantly larger Dell’Orto PHF32AS carburetor and twin spark plugs. To save weight, the seat and tailpiece are fibreglass, as is the fuel tank.
The bike is also fitted with rear-set foot-pegs, clip-on bars and a fly-screen with a Veglia tachometer. The wheels have Borrani rims, front forks are Cerriani and a competition exhaust is fitted.
The bike is in sound condition and would make great competition bike for Hill Climbs or as a Show / Parade Bike.
Please note this Classic Race Bike that requires a bump start
As this is a 43 year old bike so sold as seen with no warranty implied or given.
