This 1957 Ducati 175 TS was purchased from and refurbished by Ducati tuner Reno Leoni for the 2007 Motogiro d’Italia. Powered by a bevel-drive SOHC 4-stroke single with a 4-speed transmission, the bike was rebuilt in 2007 and modified with gearing suitable for touring events. The bike was serviced by Leoni again in 2016, and new clutch plates, cylinder gaskets and tires were fitted. The seller has owned the bike 12 years and has added approximately 8,500 miles on Moto Giro events in Italy, Monaco, and the Americas. This 175 TS is being offered with a clean Indiana title in the seller’s name.
