I still think the 450 single (street or dirt) was the best looking Ducati made.

What's with the Greek music?



Ducati started with motorized bicycles? Ha...

Thanks, Buz.



Yup, SR has a great point...those 450's had perfect proportions. Though I can't think of a single one that I don't like.



Cali Hot Rod, Shunpike Dandies....ahh, yes!!

How could I possibly argue?



Time: summer '73 or '74. Place: Marietta, GA (airlift capital of the world..home of the C-141 Starlifter, C-130 Hercules and the C-5 Galaxy) Shoney's Drive in on 41 near the Big Chicken.



My old bud Too Tall and I were sitting in his Karman Ghia drop top surveying the scene and in rolled a first gen SS 750. There was a BMW/Ducati/Guzzi dealer just a mile or so away....given my income at that time, they all may as well have been machined from a solid billet of pure Unobtainium.

The 450 street bike was indeed beautiful, but the RT(the dirtbike version) was a little bulky looking compared to some of the other european dirtbikes of the time(IMHO). having said that,id love to have one.

I go to Mid Ohio every year. Last year I raced the Ashland dirt track on Friday ,the Vintage MX on sat and the post Vintage MX on Sunday. What a blast!!! The swapmeet in itself is worth the trip. Ducati outdid itself....it put on the best "Featured Marque" display ive seen in the 8 years ive gone. This year the featured marque is MV Agusta and Hodaka is also featured. I strongly recommend it to anyone whos never been. Of course you might want to bring a tent, cause motels are sold out for miles around.

Yeah and I was perusing CBXs today just for fun.



That's one Honda I'd love to own!

Whaja ride in the mx/dirt track event? (I'm picturing a Gold Star).



Cool. Vintage stuff is neat 'cause when you fall down you're not going that fast anyway and usually don't end up in plaster.
