1971 Ducati 450 RT
Port Angeles, WA
This frame-up museum quality restoration included a complete engine rebuild. The bike's owner intends to show the bike, as well as ride it, so no cost or effort were spared in ensuring absolute period correctness.

The 450 RT was Ducati's last real off-road bike. Only 400 RTs were produced. This four stroke competition motorcycle had a Seely Style frame with a bevel driven over head cam. In an attempt to turn the tide on the new generation of 2 stroke motor-crossers, Ducati incorporated it's desmo technology into this 450cc single.
