Ducati Monza 250 Cafe Racer

Up for auction right now is this nice conversion of a stock 1968 Ducati Monza 250 into a cafe racer with the simple addition of clubman bars. It has undergone a partial restoration, but is mostly original and includes the stock bars with purchase.

I do have to say that there is something about the bars from an aesthetic standpoint that strikes me as odd. Maybe it is the angle at which they are mounted, or maybe it is the width. Not sure, but I would swap them out for clip-ons if I bought the bike.

1966 Ducati Monza 250 (Project Bike?)

This bike is cosmetically clean, although some parts are not original. The seller has a very low starting price ($500), but an unknown reserve. And the bike doesn’t currently run.

I think this would make a good starting point for a cafe build, especially because it isn’t necessarily original. There will be less angst when tearing it apart that way. But the Nighthawk shocks might actually be good on there (certainly better than 40 y.o. shocks).

Zero bids so far, and over 6 days left in the auction. It will be interesting to see what this bike ends up selling for…
