Cool new from Oz

First bike 450 Ducati in late '70's - have been riding Italian bikes since. Looking to move my MG Stelvio for the TV Lusso.

Hi plip, and welcome to the fold.

I remember those 450s. A friend had one, fibreglass tank in metalflake silver. Nice to look at; bastard to start!

Welcome to the forum fellow Aussie.
My friend also had one of those 450's and it was a bitch to start as well.

Welcome aboard.
I too had a Desmo single. It was a heck of a lot easier to start than my Norton.

yeah kick starting the 450 single was a definite procedure. there was no decompression lever. had to get TDC just right on compression. loved the start up noise with a squirt from the dellorto - usually started first time.
