HI Richard: I have my youngest sons' 65 Monza Jr to get running. I have to title it first.
Syd's Cycle in Florida were able to supply a battery and side covers for it.

No, but one of those other Italian singles. Name starts with 'A' . Kinda interesting as they are also vertically split cases. Looking forward to getting mine going. Good luck with your build.

I,ve had a 350 scrambler sitting in the corner for the last 7 years, figured its time to do something to it.

If you build that and get it running like it was meant to run, it'll give your "Snake Bike" a run for its money.

Back in 1972 when I got my new R5 Yamaha, a guy in town (he still lives here but doesn't ride any more) had a new 250 Ducati single that I just couldn't pull away from, no matter how hard I flogged it. That Duc was a fast, light bike .....

I have a 67 250 Mark3 NC which is the direct replacement for the Mach1, The makers claim 110 mph!, No its not that fast, it will only do 105. My 600 Norton has a similar performance and it will hold its own against a 350 Clubmans Gold Star. It has to be set up perfectly though and revved right out through the gears to 9000 revs ,mine is a bit tuned up so wants to keep going past 10 . where it would do itself a mischief if I let it. An identical bike did close to 600 laps flat out for 24 hours to win the endurance race in Spain back in the day. fast AND reliable as long as used as designed for.A bored and stroked one lapped the IOM at 97 mph in 2016 reaching 126mph, Never supposed to be a ride to work bike.Bloody exciting in my narrow twisty Kent lanes.

I have a '74 450 Jupiter Scrambler. It's a real dichotomy in that it came with a skid plate but that is about the only item that is scrambler oriented. Boranni alloy wheels, Grimeca four shoe front break, low pipe and ape bars. It now has Tommaselli clip-ons and no skid plate for more of a street look. The head on the Jupiter's were springer, or non-desmo, but has plenty of power for me. Doesn't have the torque of my Goldie but just as fast. The new Ducati Scrambler with the yellow tank is a retro of this model.

I have three 350 Monzas in the garage now. None are mine though. One is a racer, one is an original road bike, and the third is a parts bike.

If I had a Ducati 350 in my garage, and it didn't belong to me, you can be sure that I would be carefully and lovingly babysitting it for someone, and that the storage agreement would include the occasional ride and (given that it's a Ducati), the occasional "Italian Tuneup"!

It's the best thing for everyone, including the bike!

No, it's my way of saying that you ought to finish the bike, get it running really well, then give it to me to babysit for a few years while you move on to the next project.

I promise to take excellent care of it.
