The 175 Sport formed the basis for all the Ducati singles through 1974, and the earliest example had some of the manufacturer’s most whimsical and elegant quirks. The “jelly mould” fuel tank is unmistakable. The paint jobs were colourful and stylish, but the whole machine was a serious proposition, developing 14 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and having a top speed of 81 mph, with all-up weight of only 229 lbs.

The bike on offer here is an excellent older restoration in handsome red and gold colours with very presentable paint. It has the correct hard-rubber SAFA battery, and the chrome is in excellent condition.
