1972 Ducati Scrambler 450

Designed and produced for the American market by the end of the 60' s, this bike has a single overhead camshaft with bevel gears and is considered a cult in the bikes story.
Scrambler 450 has a very original line and the proportions are well- designed.
Look great.
Coat and chromium plating are charming still today!
Nimble and light, this bike has well-balanced suspensions and big tyres.Actioning the gear is fast, fluid and precise. The only problem, for bikers like we are today, is the position of the pedal on the right side with the gears all inverted (first gear on top). The drum front gear works quite well but does not allow sudden speed-up.The single cylinder, designed by the Eng. Fabio Taglioni, is fluid and really powerful.
It is a masterpiece of mechanics. The roar is like a melody.
The frontal reduced dimensions and the large handlebarss make this bike extremely manageable in riding even on tortuous ways. Please remember that we will ride across mountains and valleys all the time.
The lightness of this bike offers a great acceleration but the limited engine does not allow excessive high speed. However, if you ride at a tourist rate, it will be fun anyway: you can admire the landscapes with the feeling to be a 60' s Easy Rider and forget all the vibrations.
And all the people will look at the bike, only!
The kick start does not agree to compromises. Despite the valve lifters lever on the handlebarss to make the operation easier, you have to start it with a force kick (to avoid any pain).
Boots must be worn!
Scrambler 450 is easy to ride, so not much experience and physical presence are required...
All the girls like it. Being the gears on the right side means to pay a bit more of attention.

Enjoy your ride!
