1977 Ducati 860 GT Custom - SOLD

860 GT custom. Unfortunately the present owner, who asked me to build the bike, can no longer ride, so it is being offered for sale "as is". All that remains to be done is final assembly, all parts are ready... restored, replaced, refinished, replated, or rechromed ready for installation.

The bike has a sound motor, it had issues with ignition and possibly carburation, prior to this build. But... the entire electrical system and ignition system has been replaced with new components and the carbs completely rebuilt so those issues should be resolved. Motor needs to have the carbs attached and to be put back in.
