Ducati Desmo 350cc Sebring

This is largely an unmolested low mileage 5 speed Sebring, being an earlier model of the one road tested by John Robinson for the Motorcycle Mechanic in July 1974. John wrote a nostalgia machine that brings back memories of the big singles. Writing later that the 350 Desmo does its job with minimum of fuss and a pure sports bike for enthusiasts.

A copy of that article (I still have) inspired me to buy the Sebring in 2018 along with an intriguing history.

Believed to have been manufactured in 1968 and one of a shipment to the Berliner Corporation in the US, but unsold it was later sent onto Associated Motorcycles of Plumstead, London in 1971 – hence a 1971 UK registration.

It is amazingly unmolested other than for cosmetic work to include; Indicators, Del’Orto carburettor replacing the Amal Mk1, and Electronic Lucas Reeta ignition fitted in 2010. I have only fitted a new rear period number plate and the tank professionally resprayed in its original colours to exemplify the Italian heritage.

The current mileage is only 4669 and looking at historical test certificates issued in; 1996 (Mileage-2283), 2005 (M-2349), 2008 (M-2394), 2010 (M-2401), 2011 (M-2951), 2013 (M-3347), 2014 (M-3664), and its condition – is reasonable to assume is correct.

Along with the photos here, I can provide further photos and a video from starting, running, through to riding it.

Why am I selling it – that is torment, but sadly I desperately need the space in the garage.
