Even the relatively workaday Darmah iteration of the big bevel-drive cam Ducatis is a sought after, high-ticket machine now. This one looks like a well-loved example that’s something of a throwback to the times when they were largely an unwanted, obsolete Italian for the dedicated or deluded enthusiast (MG had several in the 1990s and falls in the latter group). Non-standard, well used and fitted with various upgrades, it could be a great road or classic trackday tool for the classic Duke fan not fussed about investment potential. Needs scabby exhausts sorted, and a wiring issue solved, somewhat stereotypically.
I’m not sure where I’d know where to start with one of those. Anyone can look after a later belt-cam Ducati, but you need something of an engineer’s mind to care for the bevel bikes. You can tell it’s been loved and used properly, but you need to have in-depth knowledge for these things.
king bevels hardly worth it
