Poor thing. I at least hope it was a completely trashed bike or just parts when it was started. He evidently did not build it as he does not know what came from what. Fully Restored more like fully chopped.

Q: Hi, Wondering about the title. Dec-10-14
A: Yeah it just doesn't have a title! It has never had one even from when it was brand new. There is no title on a 1964 model. Thanks, Drew

That is funny, everything I have ever owned 1964 and older has had a title when it was new.

I also liked the comment from someone that knows, if he would just sell the engine and junk the rest

Pretty stiff pill to swallow and I can't believe it is already bid up to $4800.

This is just my humble opinion however. I like the old stuff but I like then restored not chopped.

After 70 years I can't see it ending.

Not to be confused with overweight, chicken legged bandana people covered in tattoo's that middle aged woman have 'bobber type 'play.

Even if it was rough and rusty before, there is no excuse for this sort of abuse. Should be a mandatory jail offence.

I say bring back the pillory for such nonsense as that "build".

I wonder if this is the build thread for it?
http://www.ducati.ms/forums/14-vinta...r-project.html

Sounds like it was a mess to start with.

Got some good ideas if I decide to bobber my Darmah

so the sub frame has fell off.
handle bars look up upside down
only 1500miles then the bike got "customed"
no paper work.

if it was 100% stock then 6000 would be a good price to pay as it stands now it has lost 90% of it real value. ie keep the motor and then junk the rest.

not all states titled bikes back then... hell, many don't now depending on the age of the bike. take Vermont for example... over 15yrs old and only registration is issued. AL, where that duc seems to be from is similar.

Would this hardtailed Duck come under as much critisism ?
Relax, it's not a sacred object , it's a motorcycle.
It's probably not even the worse violation of the marque seen to date.
The seller was nuts to pay $6500 for in the first place and whoever he just sold it to, is nuts as well. No accounting for other people's taste.
