1972 DUCATI DESMO 450 SUPER SPORT $19,550.00 This 1972 DUCATI Desmo 450 Single encapsulates all that is beautiful throughout the illustrious racing history and design world of the chief designer and technical director at DUCATI; Fabio Taglioni. In form, a single-cylinder rendition of the world famous “750SS” This recently completed example was built to spec in West Palm Beach, FL, and has taken the better part of a year to complete. Attention to detail has been paramount, and the end result is this stunning, one-of-a-kind machine that you see here today. The Marzocchi front forks are accompanied by a dual leading shoe hub (DLS) brake system. Tomaselli type controls been fitted onto the chrome adjustable clip-on handle bars. The handmade bodywork keeps this 450 single at it’s most nimble fighting weight. The fuel tank, hand laid in California, incorporates the famous clear stripe “view window”, so you (and your race crew) can quickly assess the fuel level. The tank has been lined in-house with sealer, so it will confidently hold fuel without worry of permeation. A lightweight, sealed, AGM battery has been fitted, so it will never spill acid as well as keep the 6 volt electronics functioning as they should. Stainless steel fasteners have been utilized wherever possible, to ensure this work of art will shine for a lifetime. The Dell’Orto carburetor is complimented by a handspun aluminum velocity stack. The Italian CEV taillight, is mounted onto the European size plate mount (however will fit a US plate!) The cockpit is clean and simple, the solid aluminum Marzocchi top triple clamp is polished to a mirror, and a new speedometer is mounted by handmade aluminum mounting brackets, while maintaining it’s European roots reading in kph. The stunning Borrani wheelset has been laced and trued with new stainless steel spokes and nipples. The WM2 and 3 Rims are wrapped in brand new Pirelli rubber front and rear, along with fresh tubes and rim strips for good measure. The seat is handcrafted by a local expert, using supple alcantara. The handmade exhaust system was designed in house, and fabricated from 100% stainless steel, as a collaboration of our fabrication team and Mora Industries. Only ran with ethanol free fuel using a remote test bottle (see riding video), so this bike is ready to store in any living room, office, cafe, lobby, etc., without any concern or worry of gas odor!
