both will fit right?
I guess I would have to change the seat and side covers...
Then a roadster
Also might be interested in a oil tank as well. Cosmetics not important, need both tanks in
rehabilitable state.

Thanks,

If you have the matching seat and side covers. The interstate tank is several inches longer than the roadster tank.
And if you want to get really fussy, the seams are different on the roadster depending on the year.

Not fussy at all, just looking to make this bike functional rider.
Couldn't care what it looks like :) It is MKIII
I should prolly should stick w/ a roadster tank, the interstate tanks are desired a bit driving the prices up, me thinks...

One for the UK Advriders.

A friends selling his Ducati 160. Lovely little thing.

He's asking £800 for it.

The only problems I'm aware of is the wheel rims, typically the Italian "Blow away in the wind chrome" has blown away in the wind.

The bikes in Leicester.

It's a non desmo model.





It's being sold by Rob Hall

01162 640791

A lot of fun for the price of a reasonable pushbike

Wrong side of the puddle for me...it would be a long paddle! Nice little Duc, good luck with the sale.

I must say it sure looks like a single shaft tube accomodating the desmodromic drive in that picture. If it has pushrods there would be 2 tubes.

Not a Ducati fanatic, but have always liked them, and have ever been a geek for all things mechanical. The Desmo valve drive of Ducati stands out as a rare design in successful long term production only by them.

I had a 250 Monza a few years back. They are all bevel drive (1 drive shaft) but some used valve springs, and some used Desmo.
