No Reserve: 1967 Ducati Monza Junior

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

This 1967 Ducati Monza Junior was reportedly placed in storage by its original owner in 1968 after three unsuccessful attempts to pass the Wisconsin motorcycle license test. The bike was parked in a barn until the passing of its 87-year-old original owner, and was acquired by the seller six months ago with 444 indicated miles. This Monza features a 156cc OHC single with a 4-speed transmission and is sold with a clean Wisconsin title in the seller’s name. The bike has reportedly not been cleaned since removal from the barn, wearing over 50 years of dust as well as corrosion on the red paint and chrome. The seller reports that the inside of the fuel tank appears clean and the period Pirelli tires hold air. Accessories include a tail rack, frame-mounted crash guards, Ducati script foot pegs, and Silentium muffler. Instrumentation consists of a headlight-mounted speedometer, two warning lights, and a 5-digit odometer showing 444 miles. The factory-supplied key can be seen in the ignition switch. The 4-stroke 156cc single features an overhead camshaft driven by a bevel gear and originally produced 9.5 horsepower. The seller notes that the engine turns and shows compression, but no attempt has been made to start it. Power is transferred through a 4-speed transmission with a right-side heel and toe rocker shift lever. Prior records are unavailable.
