As I’ve just joined, I thought I’d post a couple of pics of my recently restored 175TS.
It’s a 1959, Italian version (dated by Mick Walker), which I’ve been working on a complete restoration of over the last few years, as and when time/money allows. There’s still a few things to do, including replacing the seat with the correct very, but in the meantime I’m trying to pile on some miles this summer to make both it and I are ready for the Moto Giro d’Italia next year.
I have to thank Brian Silver for stripping and check-in the crank, as well as arranging the rebore and both Nigel Lacey and Barry Jones at Lacey Ducati and Classic Ducati for the many spares! Nigel particularly, deserves praise for his patience in answering what must seem to be some daft questions to am expert like him, as well as his willingness to share his hard earned knowledge to help someone save another of these bikes.
Anyway, hope you may find the pics interesting.
