Ducati Mach 1


With great reluctance I have to sell my beloved 250 Ducati, children and a house move mean no time to ride it and no place to keep it.

Frame number: DM25082255

Engine number: DM25083133

Registration number: **L 716 NOT TRANSFERABLE

It has been extensively restored with the following points:

1. Black gloss powder coated frame and all fittings.

2. Beautifully resprayed and lined tank, side panels, mudguards, headlamp etc.

3. Extensively re-chromed and polished alloy fittings, including chromed chainguard.

4. Very good ‘wide’ touring dualseat with DUCATI logo. (original ‘narrow seat in spares kit)

4. Rewired throughout with modern rectifier and zener diode, still 6 volt but can be changed to 12 volt easily. Correct CEV lights in excellent condition, more in spares kit.

5. Near new Metzeler ME22 and ME77 tyres in correct narrow sizes of 2.75 front and 3.00 rear. (So many people ‘overtyre’ these singles and spoil the handling)

6. New swing arm and head bearings, excellent rebuilt Marzocchi rear shocks and very good forks (no leaks and good damping).

7. New cush drive rubbers fitted.

8. ‘Smooth’ Mach 1-style top yoke and original clip-ons (with built-in lever fulcrums and the screw holes for a dipswitch, see below) fitted. Rearsets fitted with special kickstarter to avoid folding brake pedal or useless Mach 1 -type kickstart lever.

9. Standard touring compression piston and original 24BS Dellorto carb, fitted with aircleaner and original hose, tops out at about 85 m.p.h. Good condition chrome megaphone fitted but Silentium in spares kit.

10. 450 Desmo clutch springs fitted, bit heavier but no clutch slip at all. Very good control cables, rear brake cable includes built-in stoplamp switch.

Spares kit: Mach 1-TYPE PARTS: 10.25 to 1 MC American forged piston and rings in 1st oversize to allow for rebore (+0.10 inch). Present engine runs well but at nearly 13,000 miles (I can’t prove mileage but speedo does look original) it could probably benefit from new rings at least although uses almost no oil between changes. Gearbox very good, gets all gears every time. VERY RARE. 27SS1 Dellorto carb in excellent condition with original bellmouth.

29SS1 Dellorto in very good condition, one float chamber between both carbs. Special highly polished alloy carb mount adapter, custom made. Mach 1 original front lightweight front mudguard (on the way from the US, needs repaint). Alloy Daytona replica front mudguard with alloy stays and stainless fittings (in green paint but mint).

Ducati Mach 1

Rev counter kit with correct, complete drive in special cam end cover and perfect Smiths 10,000 rpm CHRONOMETRIC rev counter. TOURING/STANDARD PARTS: New old stock (NOS) footrest rubbers with DUCATI name relief ribbing. Set of standard foot rests with DUCATI name rubbers in good condition.

Custom STAINLESS STEEL footrest hanger through bolt and nut. Standard brake pedal with NOS spindle and NOS return spring. Set very good original passenger footrests with good rubbers. Highly polished STAINLESS STEEL rear shock mounting capnuts. Standard ‘narrow’ style seat with very good frame, padding and springs, needs recovering.

 NOS perfect original CEV horn button/dipswitch (rare type that screws into holes in original clip-on) with curved adaptor and screws. As new CEV 6 volt horn with correct rare CEV label on front. Non-Ducati but looks appropriate steering damper with alloy knob.

Three original Silentium silncers with different tips and two clamps (one NOS). Some need work, chrome and will make at least two good compete ones.

Eagle-eyed bidders may note that a 175-type front hub is fitted, 1962 was early for 250s and they often used early parts, the brake works very well as does the rear stopper.

A nicely restored bike that can be a tourer or a super sports, with a spares kit that if you do a quick scout round ebay past and present and price it up, cannot be bought for less than at least half the total package price here.

I am upset enough by having to sell my Ducati without being messed about by a phantom buyer or non-payer. I would like to see the bike go to a Ducati fan rather than a dealer but I MUST SELL hence low PRICE.

To answer the questions I have had from many people – NO I WILL NOT SELL ANY OF THE PARTS SEPARATELY. If I was more mercenary and in this to chisel the last penny out of the bike and parts, I would sell the rare and very valuable parts off one by one on ebay or in the classic bike world. If I was so inclined I could probably make a lot more money by breaking the bike up and selling it off bit by bit.

I am very attached to the bike and will only sell it in one piece WITH all the spares.
