"Many early Ducati advertisements and literature also included. Both bikes are 100cc 2-strokes that get over 100mph. Please contact me with any questions"

VIntage 100cc and it goes 100mph? Something tells me he meant 100mpg.....but on the other hand, they are Ducs......

Those Ducs are cool little bikes. I'm sure he meant 100 mpg but it would'nt matter because someone wouldn't buy those for everyday use. I would be surprised if they did 50mph....He's had them on display in his house for years? My wife bitches at me for having my bikes in the basement for the winter. Maybe because they sit near the water heater and drip a tiny bit of gas at times?............

Basement???


I just moved the V50 Monza into the living room. It is the first of my bikes that my wife actually wants to ride herself, so I think I'm okay.

For some odd reason she thinks that motorcycles belong out in the garage in the winter! Can you believe that? I suppose I could insulate the walls, install a gas heater, install better lighting, throw out all the kids toys, and then I could work on it in the garage during the winter!

I am guessing she would then see the logic by keeping it in the basement

I have a 1 car and one bike is all the room I have.
There was a time when I had a DS and a road bike in there.
Never had a car in it since we bought it.

Hey Old Goat, I know where you could store those and then the wife would be happy.

My wife let me turn the kids old play room in the basement into a bike work shop. Over the years their have been engines rebuilt on the dinnig room table, cases cooking in her oven, too many bikes in the garage for her to get her car in, etc. And to top it off, when I retired, she let me buy a building and open a motorcycle shop!!! SO after 40yrs, I think I'll keep her.

I'd jump on that V-Strom in a hot minute. It's almost as cheap as mine, and a small fraction of the miles!
