Ducati Scrambler 350

.


Here's a new "Guerry & Prat images" studio shooting session.
This bike has been my wife's for 15 years, it was stored under a pile of blankets in my garage. Last spring we decided to restart it. Until then, I was not touched by the charm of this exotic italian bike.

Scrambler Ducati has long been considered inferior or non interresting by the purists of sports Ducati. But with today's alternatives trends of motorbike world, it seems that its popularity has increased.

This orange..... This ridiculous front mud guard... Those round and vintage shapes like the oblong light, are the attributes of some very currently fashionable bikes, aren't they?

Your opinion is wanted....

Killer bike! I even like the seat which I would normally remove from these sort of bikes.

It is perfect as is. I love it! The modern Ducati would be smart to offer an entry level single with vintage cues.

salut à tous.
non seulement ce petit scrambler a une patine sympat,en plus il fonctionne merveilleusement bien.
je le sais j'ai roulé avec l'année dernière.
sincérement je pense que si un jour l'occasion se présente j'aimerais bien en posséder une.
la bise à toutes et tous.

A beautiful example and very desireable.....here in Oz they have been very collectable for many years and very few around. I would love to have a 450 myself.

my opinion on the scrambler..my scrambler 250 i owned between 1997-2001...i rode it all the time through sydney streets....it was loud and fast around the city...was yellow....engine was built by ian gowanloch and was fantastic...i had a big accident on it (not my fault) but then rebuilt it.....fantastic bike...i wish i still had it...

my opinion.....ducati scramblers are not given their dues...

Well, the scrambler is indeed one good looking bike! You can't beat the beauty of the ducati bevel single-cylinder engine, but I also love the seat-tank sculpture, the fantastic front mud-guard and the black stripe! (and the petrol tap, and the front light,.....) And it's a pleasure to ride as well! (that's why I spent not a few months and not a few bucks on this: http://tinyurl.com/5wv6mco )

That's a really nice bike, you can feel, just looking at it how it will handle. I know that bike, and despite the quality of the pics, I must say that it's even nicer when you see it "in real". Because you feel its purpose. Ducati should come back to thumpers, and even 125 or 250 bikes.

In Spain in early 70s Ducati Mototrans made this 350 4T bikes, but 2T Bultaco, Montesa, Ossa were better. As a boy I loved. Look like English bike. Nice.

Thanks for posting the pic. Brought back fond memories of the yellow 450 I had back in the 80s. Rode it to work every day and had fun on it on the weekends.Good reliable bike unless it was raining(even fixed that I the end. In 1975 they has bigger front fork tubes than the much heavier Honda 4s.
