Ducati is still going strong.
The monthly Vintage Bike OC show was yesterday, and I was going to take the Hercules, but it's not running right, so I dug the Ducati out if the garage, put some fuel in it and it fired up first pedal.
Finally got the original little Ducati tail pipe, (need to get it rechromed) and an NOS Veglia Speedo, so I hooked those up.
Rode it to the show and back, about 15 mile round trip, with no issues at all. Rode like a dream. A very slow dream, but rode perfect (top speed is 35mph, and I was mostly babying it. Don't want to blow this thing up.)
Got second place by one vote. Beat out by a 1965 Harley Electra Glide FLH.
