1968 Ducati 259Mk3D – Twin Filler
In 1968 Ducati introduced what is now referred to as the ‘wide case’ 250 and 350 Mk 3 Desmo’s. Whilst the engine specification was virtually unchanged compared to the narrow case models, the new Mk 3 Desmo is unique and instantly recognisable by its twin-filler chrome paneled tank and chrome guards. Some Desmo's also had polished stainless steel, but all non-desmo models received only silver painted guards & tanks. General perception is that all Desmo's had black frames, but red frames were also an option to new buyers, and was the case in the day, if a buyer wanted something outside of the designated build spec, Ducati would accommodate most requests rather than loose sales.
This beautiful Australian delivered Mk3 has had only one previous owner; the present owner acquired this bike 33 years ago and set about returning it to concourse original condition. As the photos depict, it has been maintained in excellent original condition. Included is the super-rare original factory workshop manual, and most noteworthy is the possibility to acquire a vast inventory of factory spares with this bike; many NOS items acquired from the Australian importer after the singles no longer warranted support.
Currently on NSW historic registration this bike has traveled only 244 miles in the past 33 years.
