In 2011, our vendor purchased from ‘Made in Italy Motorcycles’ in Stowmarket, the principal original parts to produce what you see today, including the certified 088175 frame, the wheels, engine, gearbox and fuel tank.
Between 2011 and 2013, all other OEM parts were purchased (invoices on file totalling almost £10,000) in readiness for a complete restoration. The major components were stripped down and surface prepared and/or painted where required. All seals and bearings replaced with a pair of 900 road/race pistons fitted too.
Work was completed in 2014 and it was successfully UK registered after receiving the all clear from the Ducati Owners Club in the UK along with official confirmation of originality from Ducati in Bologna.
Since then, it has been proudly displayed in our vendor's office, covering a total of only 2 miles. The engine and gearbox have regularly been turned but bidders are advised that if going on the road, it might need some light commissioning beforehand.
A very well documented restoration for the discerning collector.
