68 Ducati 250 SSS minus an S
« on: Sep 28, 2017, 11:23:43 »
Kind of a restoration. The bike that Fabio Taglioni should have built? Zeke was suppose to be doing his homework during computer class at school. He found this online and it was close to home so we took a look.

This build has been on hold for the past two years until we finished our other Zo÷id cb175 build. Now we get to work on one of our bikes again! Zeke's dream bike is the Ducati Elite 200 with a Jellymold tank also called the "bean" tank but this fell into our lap and we have been doing research on Ducati small singles for the past year including Fabio Taglioni the designer that made Ducati's so beautiful. Fabio's name  means 'bean' in Italian. Fabio came to Ducati from Mondial and the Mondial is one of my favorite Italian bikes.

When we arrived to look at the bike we thought we were going to see the Scrambler in the condition of the pictures but boy were we in for a surprise. This guy was so good his wife didn't know he was working on it as a project and you could tell it was a passion of his. We were standing in his garage which had boxes stacked in it but if you turned around and looked at his house it had just been demolished by a tornado. When we approached his address we couldn't believe what destruction this tornado did. However when we turned back to look in the garage he started pulling out the parts. The frame was powder-coated. He pulled out a fully painted and sealed Monza tank. The seat was covered and badged Ducati. Next was the engine. A widecase 250.  He had it fully rebuilt by Syds Cycles out of Florida. Forks were 35mm Marzocchis but one was bent.  Most of the parts were there! He had shouldered rims laced up with Avon rubber, He also collected Italian NOS for the project.   We left because there was no way we could afford what he was asking. Later that night he called us and said he wanted us to have the bike and made us a deal we couldn't refuse.  We took it home and Zeke stayed up and put it together that night and there it sat for two years.
