1974 Ducati 450 Desmo


 Product Description

1974 Ducati 450 Desmo.

This bike was purchased new in 1974 by a Wagga Wagga local. The original buyer and his good friend, a German Wagga White Goods repairer by the name of Jim ?, each purchased new Desmo singles. Jim bought a 350 and his friend bought this 450. After a few years Jim sold the 350 and regretted it so much that he talked his good friend into selling his 450. Unfortunately, on his first ride the 450 kicked-back & broke Jims ankle, and the bike was put into storage and never again ridden.

Restoration: The present owner acquired this beautiful bike in 2001 & undertook the following refurbishment work.

  • Paint touched-up; colour matched to original from under front mudguard.
  • Frame hand-sanded & repainted in standard black.
  • Seat recovered
  • Rims stripped, polished and re-laced
  • Engine strip-down, clearances checked & new bearings throughout
  • Cylinder rebore & new 1st over size piston
  • Cylinder head overhauled by Phil Hitchcock of Road and Race.
  • Chrome Conti exhaust.
  • Rewired to 12v.
  • Point’s ignition overhaul.
  • Koni rear shocks
