"Old btm"

Been chasing my dream bike for years, and finally got it last April. Fell in love with Ducati at the age of 10, while riding on the back of one of these, that belonged to one of my father's friend.
This is an all original 1969 Scrambler "Jupiter" 450, sounds awesome, it is extremely light and nimble and i had it at about 60mph, albeit the spedometer would move back and forth between 50 and 60.
Super dim headlight, can't see shit riding home (i live in an area that has lots of wild horses that leave dropping everywhere), yet an extremely satisfying (and vibrating) experience!

Awesome specimen and great addition to your collection!

Thank you, the SPS is a 1998, the bodywork is a Carbon Dream from Italy, and is made to look like a 998. I was younger and way too excited whe i got it back in 2002, and sold off the original bodywork (all but the seat cowl) to fund the carbon fiber stuff, Holins etc..
