Well i've been off the radar for awile,working away and saving my money for some project.I'been looking for something to give my father for his 60th birthday/retirement,I found it this week.It's a 1970 Ducati 100cc Cadet with 290 original miles.It's been sitting in a basement for over 30 years and is about to get a makeover.The motor is in tip-top shape internally,but the casing is gotta see a blast cabinet.The chrome needs to be redone,and she'll be wearing new red/silver paint in an original ducati fasion shortly.Heres some pics,enjoy and i'll keep you updated on it's progress*th-up*

Oh wow...... thats AMAZING. I love classic bikes, and you can tell where the Ducati Monster gets its orgins from (one of my all time fav bikes!)

Make sure you keep us posted with this one. Just so you know, your love/passion for old school is what keeps some of us on this site!

Dude that's awesome - looks wise just leave it though and give it a good detailing - the look of it will be awesome with some patina (its my word of the day)
