• Restored
• Original-paint gas tank

If you didn't know better, you might think this 1967 Ducati 250 Scrambler was a mild custom, what with its tiny gas tank, abbreviated fenders and solo saddle, sort of a cross between a bobber and a scrambler. In fact, that's just how it left the factory. Ducati's U.S. importer Joseph Berliner liked the looks of his brother Michael's converted Ducati 250 flat-tracker, and implored the factory to build something similar but with lights, so that Ducati would have something for the street-scrambler trend just getting started in America in the early 1960s.

In 365 Motorcycles You Must Ride the authors rightly call those first Ducati Scramblers, "The key to solidifying Ducati's place in the American market," going on to explain, "Sometimes you don't want to be crouched behind a fairing on a long, lefthand sweeper at speed. Sometimes you just want to sit up and cruise to the beach and wave at girls. Or guys. But you still want to be on a Ducati. Thanks to importer Joe Berliner, you can. He convinced Ducati to build the Scrambler."

This 1967 Scrambler comes from the garage of a longtime Ducati singles collector. Starting with a solid frame and engine, he restored the bike to what could be described as excellent 'rider-concours' condition, using a variety of NOS or renewed parts, the exception being the untouched original-paint gas tank, slightly faded and with a few nicks, but just too good to repaint. One fortunate find was a pair of NOS Pirelli MT53 tires, original fitment back in the day.
