Re: small DM stamping 1974 250 SCR/Road

What I have observed is that every part manufactured in Spain is distinctly different from the Italian counterpart. You would have to compare your engine components with parts of known origin to decisively determine origin. Matt Hi Steve Have a look at this. It may help you determine whether your e...

Re: More 250 strata probs

I can't find a washer with these dims(23 outer,15 inner and 3mm thick) If you can't get one made - and I dunno where you are for postage etc - you could always try: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DUCATI-BEVEL-VINTAGE-NOS-TAPER-WASHER-PT-0170-77-210-D7/322412118349?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkp...

Re: More 250 strata probs

I think Jon has already given you a good lead .... :) "The Strada wheel with a drum brake is the same as an Italian Ducati single, so has the same bearings and spacers etc. " And so, following that lead, here is the parts diagram for the 250 Monza (and pretty much everything else, frankly)...

Re: Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

I am understanding then that the "type" approval means model type and that the homologation code is a certification by an authority. Correct. Have a browse on Tinternet for more info. Could you please provide me some more context on that subject. Not sure there's much more to add, really ...

Re: Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

Second line on welded tag reads (DGM. 1985. OM. ) Tell me what a Homologation code is (please ...) 'Homologation' is type approval. Interesting that the frame has the "1985" homologation (type approval) number. This was the number originally given to the narrow-case 250 frame, way back in...

Re: Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

Ta, Jon. Good stuff. (I had a feeling that you'd previously pointed out that the Spanish 250 SCRs carry the Italian frame numbering ...). Although the frames on the widecase Road and the Scrambler are very similar, the Road frame will have two prongs welded under the fuel tank to allow for tank moun...

Re: Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

<snip> ... just to be clear, the frame # on this bike is also Spanish? Jon is The Man to advise you on the differences between a SCR frame and a Road frame; but I suspect the frame is Italian. According to Ian Falloon, 250 SCR frames from this period start at 252000, so yours at 254411 fits this se...

Re: Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

So the question is, how did what looks like a Spanish built Road 250 end up with so many Italian built identifiers? As per Jon. I don’t see any particular mystery regarding your bike’s mix of components or its provenance, Steve. The bike would have been assembled in Bologna, Italy by Ducati Meccani...

Re: Telesco fork diagram and parts

Thanks Jon (even if mine - as you may recall ;) - has Betors .. :D ).

Where'd you get that diagram, btw? I've only got a list for the engine bits :(
