Description

1964 Ducati 250cc Daytona
Registration no. BFW 639B
Frame no. DM 250 80735
Engine no. DM 250 85824

Ducati's first road-going 250, the Diana, arrived in 1961. Developed from a successful production racer, the sporting newcomer was sold as the 'Daytona' in the UK. First registered in the UK in 1999 and acquired by the current vendor in 2002, this Daytona benefits from a long-term restoration completed in 2012 and is presented in generally excellent condition. Upgrades include 12-volt electrics, Lucas RITA ignition, alloy wheel rims, a Mach 1 rev counter, a modern Dell'Orto PHBL24 carburettor and a replica Conti silencer in stainless steel (see invoices on file). The removed original parts, including the Lafranconi silencer, are available if required. The machine is offered with current MoT and V5C registration document. A broken side-stand mount is the only fault notified.
