No Reserve: 1970 Ducati Desmo 350

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1970 Ducati Desmo 350 was purchased by the seller four years ago. It shows 5,316 miles which is believed correct, though documentation is not included. Power comes from a 350cc engine which breathes through a rebuilt 29mm Dellorto SS carburetor and is paired to a 5-speed transmission. Further alterations include a stainless steel mount for the original Veglia tachometer, a reproduction silentium silencer, a new header pipe, new chain, and a new ignition switch assembly. All cables are said to have recently been replaced, and this Ducati is now being offered at no reserve with a clean Indiana title. As shown above, the yellow paint on the fuel tank and trim was applied during previous ownership. Several paint flaws are highlighted in the photo gallery below. The frame and all other painted parts are claimed to be original, as is the chrome. There is a spot on the headlight where the chrome has peeled off, and the rear shock springs were painted silver by the previous owner. The fuel tank has recently been resealed. The black leather saddle was purchased from France by the previous owner. Two seam tears are highlighted in the photo gallery below. This Ducati rides on Borrani wheels wearing period Pirelli tires that show cracking and should be replaced. The original Veglia tachometer is on a stainless steel mount, and the seller claims that all lights are in good working order. The odometer currently displays 5,316 miles which the seller believes is correct, though no documentation is included with the sale for verification. The factory 350cc engine is linked to a 5-speed transmission and has been fitted with a recently rebuilt non-original 29mm Dellorto SS carburetor. The factory engine stamping is shown above.
