1974 Ducati 450 Mark 3 (MK3 or MKIII) Widecase Ducati Single

I am the third owner - the guy I bought it from had it since 1977. You can see the pictures of it when I first got it, it was painted green. It runs great, everything works. It is NY state inspected. I painted it this winter and although it is presentable, it is a "C+" paint job (my next attempt will be an "A"). The seat has some small tears, but presentable. The muffler is "tired Italian chrome", but original. The bike has all original parts, engine, carb, aircleaner, petcocks, CEV headlight, verlicchi headlight ears, CEV tail light, muffler, Borrani alloy wheels, DLS Grimeca brakes, aprilia light switchs,verlicchi throttle and levers, compression release lever, etc.
