Like this?xbacksideslider said:I had two Desmo singles, 350 and 450, both 1967 MK III D models.
These are very sought after now.
The early Duke singles were great. They were one of the very few bikes of that era that people could race virtually out of the crate. I didn't have my narrow case Mark 3 that long. It was almost identical to the Mach 1 but without rearsets and without the large rev counter, and had flywheel magneto ignition:
Not long after I sold it, I entered the 450 Desmo you see in this thread, bog standard, in my first ever road race in Dublin's historic Phoenix Park venue and was passed out on the straight by the guy who bought my 250!
