Re: Indicators on a Mach1

I think that the ends of the bars aren't such a good idea. They tend to vibrate a bit ;) ;). I've seen them on German SS's in the 70's and 80's but those engines tended to run VERY smooth :lol: :lol: Since "The Law" has specific measurements and dimensions for them, I think it's easier to...

Re: First Ducati

I downloaded a figure, somewhere on a private italian DUCATI webpage, which listed the prodution numbers of all w/c Scrambler models. If have to check my harddisk, and if it reappears I will make an upload.
For now. The Scramblers appear lastly in 1975 - 250, 350 and 450 as well.
