Hate to be negative around Christmas time..BUT! A friend of mine has an old Pantah with an electrical problem and needless to say radio shack does not carry the part he needs.

Come to think of it, nobody has the replacement parts.

BTW, he does very good restoration work on this type of old bike; If he can't fix it I would stand no chance.

Maybe you could get it and drop a Chevy motor in it.

What's really rare is that this is an example of a Craiglist ad that is actually well written and informative.



I really hate those "I have a Honda for sale. Call me." posts...

Looks like an interesting bike, but calling it "the bike that saved Ducati" seems to be a severe stretch.



How about the bevel head that Paul Smart rode to victory at Imola?



FWIW, there really isn't any need to be scared of the electrics on the Pantah, unless you are trying to build a 100 point restoration. Remember, the Pantah was NOT a computer controlled fuel injection bike. Switches that operate the lights and horn are obtainable at any salvage yard. Granted, if the alternator is kaput, it will be difficult to source a replacement, unless you are willing to cut some metal, or rewind the wires on the original. And the starter motor might need brushes; that, in turn might mean that you need to carve a bit on some other starter pieces.



Original parts might well be tough to obtain, though.

Damm, I should have kept my 78 900 SS, that was "the Duc". What, with the Conti pipes and the 40 mm carbs that came in the shipping crate with it, that was one fine bike, flies in the paint and all. Does anybody remember Ghost Motorcycles in Port Washington, NY?
