Ducati 400SS

Bought this from the Editor of RiDE after he dropped a lawnmower on it and broke the fairing. Put it back together, sealed the rusty fuel tank, but it’s still not back on the road – waiting for new carburettor diaphragms to turn up.

Looks pretty in the sunshine.

The inside of the tank - sealed with Sureseal, which is impervious to the ethanol in modern fuel.

+ GOOD POINTS
It's a classic Ducati, and it's red. Handles really well.

- BAD POINTS
Underpowered - basically it's a wheezing 400 motor in a chassis designed for a grunty 900.
