The 1964 Ducati Scrambler 250, #84653, offered here is a fine example of Ducati's early foray into the off-road marketplace. A recipient of a thorough restoration, it appears in remarkable condition today. What can be described as a 100 point effort, little was overlooked in returning this bike back to showroom new condition. Highly accurate, one can notice the use of proper hardware, an off-road air cleaner, an external choke on the handlebar, and an adjustable steering damper. Further illustrating the singular focus of the motorcycle, the bike lacks any sort of instrumentation. The overall finish has a jewelry-like quality. There is little evidence that the bike was modified over the years and positively, there is a lack of gussets for passenger pegs. This Scrambler is received out of long-term ownership during which the meticulous restoration was carried out. Post restoration, this scrambler was started up and ridden around the owner's neighborhood to check proper functioning at which point the tank was drained and dried out for storage. Getting this beautiful little scrambler running and riding again should be as simple as filling the tank with gas and few kicks of the starter.
Seldom seen at vintage offroading events, it would surely be well received at any such gathering. Being Italian, the bike does not suffer from a lack of style and will surely draw the attention of those in and outside of the hobby. Such a finely restored Ducati will make for a fine addition to any collection.
