Hello, I am looking for a rubber pad that cushions the rear of the gas tank on a Mark 3. It is missing on my bike (69 Widecase with touring tank), causing the tank to bounce on the spine of the frame. I would like a photo if someone has one, so I could make the pad myself. Better yet, if someone could suggest where I could buy one. Thank you. Dan

Hi Daniil,Daniil wrote:Well, that is exactly the problem. The part is missing from my bike, and I have no idea how it should look like. I posted this, so someone could show me a picture of it or something. Dan
The part number of the part you're after is 0440.83.030 (and in Italian it's called 'una guarnizione').
It's really a 'something of nothing', though - just a flat square of expanded foam or rubber, 12mm or so thick. So you can always just substitute something similar.
Otherwise, try Andy Nienhagen http://www.desmo-ducati.de/. He's got it on his parts list under this number, but unfortunately with no price against it - which, I'm afraid, normally means none in stock. But he'll do his best - he speaks English, btw.
Marc Parfait may also be able to help: [email protected].
And Mario Sassi could probably find you something: http://www.oldracingspareparts.com
Otherwise, Damien Birch - contact as Martin's message - is often looking for new and obscure things to make :-)
