    Default Ducati 250 Mk3 in bits

    Colleagues,

    I'm brand new to this forum and have a 1974 250 Mk3 completely dismantled and in a pretty poor state.

    It was dismantled in the late '70s for a refurbish and has remained in boxes in a garage ever since. Unfortunately lots of bits have gone rusty. Some parts have been repainted, including the frame.

    Prior to dismantling it was running great, but the chrome and paintwork was in a terrible state, hence the decision to strip and rebuild. As far as I know it is complete except for the wheel rims, silencer, and I can't find the handlebar switches. The swing arm pivot pin is rusted beyond use, but new bushes are present. Note that the covers removed from the engine (in the photos) are all present.

    I have no further interest in the bike myself, but is it the sort of thing someone might be interested in buying and restoring? Or is it too far gone? I didn't know whether to offer it for sale or weigh it in for scrap. Any thoughts or comments would be much appreciated.

    Dear Moderator,

    Thanks for approving my post. You've removed all the photo links - did I do something wrong? I wanted people to be able to judge the condition of the parts.

    Thank you for all the advice offered. In fact - to my surprise - it has been bought this afternoon, and is going to be a project for a young female engineering student. I'm pleased it's going to a good cause, and if she gets it roadworthy she'll love riding it!

    Thanks again - another single rescued from the scrap yard.

    Sorry Steve, I approved your post but did nothing to remove the photos and saw no sign of them. The forum software prevents new users from adding photos until they have posted a certain number of times, 3 or 4 maybe. It is to prevent spammers had nothing to do with me.

    Thanks, Derek. No need to apologise and I wasn't implying criticism - I just assumed I had done something that wasn't allowed by the forum rules.

    Anyway, it's all sorted out now; thanks for your help - very much appreciated.
