THanks very much for the info guys. I was attempting to restore this bike to factory specs, but if the Radaelli rims aren't good, then what's the point?

Where can I get Excel rims and proper spokes?
Cheers,
Kyle.

Ok, I'm just gonna say it........ I think it would be a shame to take an Elite and turn it into a racer. It is indeed your bike so do whatever you wish but Elites were quite rare and they are simply stunning. Judging from an investment standpoint....if you restore the bike as an Elite, it will be wo...

Very interesting post. I don't have Ian's book but will order it asap. Can anyone decode DM 200 154463 and DM 200 154353. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As I have 2 complete basket cases and no clue as to what they truly were. Cheers and congratulations to Jon on his new Elite/GT project! Ky...

left side shifting conversion?

Has anyone converted their bike to a left foot shift?
I've only heard of this, I've never actually seen it done.

Cheers,
Kyle.

I have my original foil...I could photograph it and email it to you so you can see how it should be stamped. Here is an Ebay listing for the stamps so you can punch your foil. No affiliation to auction...I just happen so see it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ducati-Bevel-Frame-ID-Tag-Stamps-250-350...

rear sets question.

Can someone recommend a quality rear set for narrowcase singles? Or has anyone made a custom set, such as these? http://www.docc.ca/singles/chassis.htm I'm wondering if all rear sets require modification to the frame, i.e. welding on a threaded boss. Thanks in advance for the information & advice! C...

unsure of what I have.....help

I recently purchased yet another basket case. (what's wrong me?)

The "bike" has matching numbers engine & frame
On the case is 154353, DM 200, M955 (on both halves)
There is an "A" stamped on the cylinder.
There is an "R" stamped on the head.

Any clues would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Kyle.

Yes the engine is indeed a 200. The frame is original and has the original badge on the headtube. It is marked 1959 175 TS, which I believe is correct. I have not decided whether to pursue putting it back to original or simply building a cafe racer.
