| Ernesto Quiroga with his 1972 Ducati Desmo 450
Country of Origin: Bologna, Italy
Model: Desmo 450 Super Sport
Engine: 450cc single cylinder.
Owner: Ernesto Quiroga, Long Beach
This is a highly customized Ducati Desmo 450. The frame and engine are original, but the rest is custom. Ernesto has only owned this bike for about 3 months, and bought it as is. Hmm... "as is" sounds like it didn't come with a Warranty.
The tank is an Imola 3/4 tank the same style as a Ducati 750. The brakes and suspension are all changed from the original. Well our croud doesn't seem to be hung up on originality, because this bike virtually stole all the votes. Ernesto promised that he would bring one of his other five bikes next month. I'm anxious to see what else he has. Thanks Ernesto for bringing this bike out for us to see.
