Re: Help any useful information wanted on my 350

An Mot was required until recently, but the regulations regarding vehicle registrations have changed. Any vehicle over 40 years old will be classed as a 'Historic vehicle' and will not require an MOT. DVLA form V112 is the exemption from MOT form, for which it is necessary to tick box R, declaring t...

Re: Help any useful information wanted on my 350

Your Forza would seem to be a 1977 model from the numbers that you give. The engine and frame numbers on Forzas do not match. To get your bike registered at the DVLA, with an age-related registration number, you will need a dating certificate that can be obtained from the Ducati Owners Club GB. If i...

Re: 250 strada front wheel

Hi Dave, The Strada wheel with a drum brake is the same as an Italian Ducati single, so has the same bearings and spacers etc.. Check that the wheel spindle fits easily between the fork legs without the wheel in place, and also that it fits through the hub/brakeplate/ speedo drive cover. Sometimes t...

Re: Rear Fender Application Question

I think you will find that the Bronco rear fender is too narrow for a 250 Monza, although it would probably fit a Monza Junior 160. The Bronco fender is only about 110mm wide in total, so once you get an 18 inch wheel and tyre fitted it would be a tight fit. You may just get away with a 2.75 x 18 ty...

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

Your photos appear to show a bike of mainly Spanish origin. The eccentric swinging arm chain adjuster is Spanish. The forks are Spanish Telescos. The hubs look like Spanish items as they appear to be using the narrow rib casting that Bologna abandoned after 1966. So I would guess that you have a Spa...

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

The Spanish built 250 Scrambler frames that were numbered in a similar way to the Italian built frames, namely, stamped DM 250 S ------ with the homologation code Craig quotes.. There are a few pointers to a Spanish frame, but these are not always to be taken as a certain way to identify a Spanish b...

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

There is plenty of evidence that some of the late Bologna built Ducati singles had parts supplied by Mototrans in Spain. In particular, the late 250 Scramblers and the blue and gold 350 Mark 3. Almost all of the late 250 Scramblers had Spanish engines and frames, quite a few had Spanish forks. So St...

Re: Steering head bearings for 250 strada

There are two sizes of taper roller bearings fitted to the 250 Strada. The most common size is 25x52x16.5. Look for 30205 taper roller bearings. Sometimes a bottom yoke with a slightly larger diameter steering stem is fitted, and this needs a bearing 26x52x16.5, a 1mm larger bore. You need to remove...
