So my girlfriend inherited this little gem from her mom and it doesn't run, and needs some work. As I get started on this I'm curious if anyone knows where to find a decent manual for this bike, and possibly any good sites to find parts at, i.e. gasket sets, wiring kits, possibly a set of rings (actually most likely a set), brakes (shoes, cables, etc.) I'm focusing attention right now on getting her running and operation before i continue on to the beauty aspects seeing as how there isn't' too much rust at all.

Either way... any help would be awesome because like i said i'm going into this in the dark. earliest bikes I've worked on are mid 80's yz's.

Go look in domiracer, they have a ton of nos & used parts. I've bought some hard to find nos parts there. Capt Paul

Here are some links for parts/info.

http://www.ducatimeccanica.com/ info on bevel Ducs and resources for them. Might want to sign up for the bevelheads list too
http://www.roadandrace.com.au/ Lots of bevel Ducati parts
http://www.desmo-ducati.de/index.htm helps to have part numbers, most of his stuff isn't shown on the site
http://www.bevelheaven.com/ not many parts but the forum might help
http://www.guzzino.com/

Domiracer has been mentioned already, and Syd's Cycles in Florida probably has some stuff for them.

Buy a parts manual too, they're pretty helpful.

All great advise above. I'm just getting aquanted with the small Jr as well and it's proving to be interesting. There are a lot of unique things about the 160 that just to not cross to it's larger siblings.

Things i've found so far that seem to be unique:
Wheels/Tires (Tyres)
Carb
Carb manifold/Insulator (bolt width is narrower)
Engine Gaskets
Shocks
Forks
Fenders
Brakes

The frame for the 160 is slightly different - the engine mounts up front are shorter, the battery tray (of the later model anyway) is a different shape, the rear rails (under the seat) don't have a kick up in them like the 250 frame, and the swingarm is different. Also the steering tube is shorter so if you use the forks off a 250 you need to use a spacer.

Ok, so pretty much the whole bike is different. I think the oil and the air in the tires is interchangable. ;-)
