WTB: 250 Cylinder

Looking for a 250 cylinder for a nc. Bore needs to be less than 74.5mm as I already have a 74.5mm piston (long story). Prefer no broken fins.
Thanks!

Vintage Parts from Ducati Dealers?

Anybody know if Ducati dealers can still get OEM engine parts (piston rings, valves and guides, etc.) for vintage bikes, such as a '66 MACH 1?

If so, does anyone know a dealer that is well versed in the vintage parts and has good customer service?

Thanks!

Wheel restoration

Hi All I'm about to restore my Mach 1 wheels and I need some advice. I prefer to do as much of the work myself to save $$$ and because I like doing the work. I'm planning to polish the hubs myself, replace the spokes with new ones, and have the rims re-plated. Unfortunately, I noticed a significant ...

Thanks for the info Bill. Ian Faloon's book says the Mach 1 had a 29A, but everything else I have found (Mik Walker book, service manual, web searches) specifies a 29D So I now believe I should be looking for a Dellorto SSI 29D...

After doing more research I have found conflicting info on the proper carburetor for a Mach 1. Anybody know if it is in fact the 29D and not the 29A and what the difference between the two is?
Thanks.

How to remove the swing arm on a narrow case frame?

Hi All, I have my narrow case frame almost stripped down and I have a question about removing the swing arm (still waiting on delivery of my repair manuals). It looks like I remove the plastic plugs from both ends of the swing arm pivot, loosen the two clamping bolts on the frame and press/tap out t...

Thanks, Just what I was looking for. Although I already bought a basket case Mach 1 at this point so maybe this will help me with my next project bike... a Scrambler turned into a custom flat-tracker :-D

1960s singles frames explained...

Hi All, Can anyone give a brief overview of the 1960s single cylinder frames? I have read that there is little difference between the frame geometry and therefore the handling of most models. I find it hard to believe that a scrambler frame is nearly the same as a Mark 1. Any additional info on thin...
