Re: Scrambler Frame help

FWIW, Byron, that bar is shown in the parts book with a kink :), perhaps a bit closer towards the seat bracket than in the middle as yours seems to be. The parts book says the light unit was an Aprilia 4521 unit. This, you might have to hunt around for. Lenses are easier to find than the whole unit ...

Re: Torque wrench settings 250 strada

I have an oil leak in between the head and barrel on my Strada. I fitted the O ring when assembling ... <snip> Was it a NEW one from a reputable supplier, Dave?

Re: Italian or Spanish?

I have a Ducati 350. As far as I can tell it was made in either 1973 or 1974. I assumed it was made in Italy, because it says "Made in Italy" on the timing side cover. But I've heard that later model singles may have been made in Spain. Is there some way of knowing its actual country of o...

Re: 250 Strada chain adjustment

Re: 350 crankshaft question

Also ...

Getting it apart is the easy bit . You've then got to put it together again :? .

Ciao

Re: restoring a 1970 mark 3 desmo 350

Nice :o . Sorry - I must have somehow misunderstood the plea in your first message, "Any help would be appreciated". I also point out that I gave you definite answers to two of your questions, answers that were based on period photos of new bikes taken at the time. But apparently such an o...
