    Goosebumps,,
    You'll find Australia is a good place to find spares if you can't find them anywhere else. Ian Gowanloch bought 10 shipping containers of bevel spares in the 1980s and he still has...

    A very interesting thread Geoff which I will follow. Regarding zinc plating, I don't think you'll have any issues with this as it's too thin to cause interference in bearings. I've had several...

    That was a great day in Kintyre Scott! Since you rode it I replaced the slipping clutch and overhauled the calipers. The remaining gremlin was the gearbox issue. Neil has sorted this out so it...

    Oh I think John is quite flexible, but then you can be if you ask over the odds - and the customer thinks he's getting a bargain! But the prices of 70s Italian stuff just keeps on marching upwards.

    I've always wanted a Guzzi V7 Sport and unfortunately the GTS was needed to fund it! I don't rule out getting another Bevel at some point but the V7 Sport is something I just had to try.

    Great isn't it? I think you're a bit optimistic with 5k to put that right Duccout! I just sold my GTS for a similar value and while it was not perfect, it was in a different league to that one.

    Sorry I don't mean to upset anyone. I don't know the history - just that it's great, but not Ducati specific event.

    Having rebuilt a bevel twin I now understand the old adage "there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Ducati". I reckon you'd spend 10k on refurbishing that properly - but then there's always...

    Yes, like Nix I have a Marelli starter motor which I only use when hot - and very often all I get is a clicking from the solenoid. The Bosch motor is I'm sure much more reliable, but asking it to...

    Very interesting story. Good luck with the sale! I think it might be better to iron out the remaining snagging problems so that you can present it as a pretty much perfect rebuild.
