You could have this rare Ducati

Only six of these machines were every made.

MOTORBIKE enthusiasts have a chance to get their hands on an extremely rare machine.
Autioneers Historics at Brooklands have a series 2 1965 Ducati 350SC (Sport Corsa) for sale at its October 22 auction.
There were just six of these machines built for the Barcelona endurance races. Later in the decade Ducati team rider Franco Farne took one to South Africa to spearhead the marque’s sales drive there.
The machine is loosely based on the 250cc production machines, but the works 350SC boasted a host of upgrades including a twin cradle frame, special Marzocchi alloy forks and engine case holding a close ration five-speed gearbox, unique to this machine, and which had wider gears and longer shafts. The whole thing weighs just 257lbs (117kg) and was able to reach 124mph.
This particularly example has been rebuilt recently by well-known Ducati race engine builder Anthony Ainslie, with new parts from the factory. The engine has been confirmed as being in as new condition by Moto Marianna. All this means it  must surely be one of the most desirable Ducatis there is.
It is eligible for events at Goodwood as well as the CRMC and IHRO series of classic motorcycle races. The machine comes with spares and took kit.
If you wish to buy it, offers in the range of £27,500 to £32,500 are expected.
