It's a Ducati 350 single engine complete with standard left foot kickstart and rusty spring holder on the points cover. It's OHC with the cam soun by a bevel geared tower shaft. Pretty reliable bike. I had the 250 scrambler. The 250, 350 and 450 all had the same lower end so the 250 and 350 were especially robust IIRC. As far as the rest goes it's a frankenstein. I saw an article on it years ago but can't remember much detail.

It should have schrapnel guards to keep your ankles from being injured when the motor hatches.

Static only. A good coat rack. You'd have to carve spare parts out of soap.
