This and the fact it's only showing 11643km (7276 miles) and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks. We have been unable to confirm this mileage reading. Please disregard it. The single most important purchase for a classic restoration project is the bike to restore, whether it's going to be a commercial venture or just a hobby interest it all starts here!. Japan was one of the biggest markets for Ducati in the 1980s but limited motorcycles to only 400 cc, so smaller versions of the Ducati 750F1 were sold there as the Ducati 400F3 from 1986-88. A Limited run of 509 Ducati 400 F3 bikes were built in 1986 and this bike is number 334 (VIN ZDM400R*400334) and is shown on a numbered factory plaque fitted to the top of the seat fairing, see picture. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES........As you may or may not know, here at DK Motorcycles we have very little knowledge or experience with these classic Italian bikes but luckily you aficionados usually put us right!?. As you can see this bike looks to be complete & orginal. It has obviously stood a while so there are a few minor chips marks & scratches here & there but in the main it is lovely. The battery is nearly flat. BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS.........This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures from 32 years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.....A true time warp machine!. The wheels are straight with nice clean discs, calipers & working master cylinders. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight. Instruents & switches look great. Carburettors are free sliding off the twist grip. Paintwork is solid, fuel tank is squeaky clean inside and has just minor marks & scratches in the original paint. Exhausts are original & solid. Indicators are tidy. The engine we have had firing/running on easystart spray but the fuel system & carbs will need attention.
