There is one of these for sale locally. Might be fun...... anybody have any general info on the bike or pitfalls associated with a 38 year old?
Love to see a picture of the frame.Hi guys.
Just hauled home my new 450 scrambler (fifteen minutes ago). Don't know anything about it yet (including whether it is a Mototrans or real Duc, but will soon. I did note, however that there appears to be a compression release valve on the left handlebar- contrary to the post above that says only on RTs etc.
So its got nice Akront rims that say "Spain" on them, the aforesaid compression release, a wonky looking choke mechanism, a Dellorto 29 carb, the big round air filter on the right, a braced (dirt bike style) tall handlebar, and the bullet shaped Aprillia headlight with the swtich on it. Oh, points- not electronic, CEV guages, a centre (er) stand as well as a side stand, and the gussetted frame as seen on the later 450 Mk III.
Anyone tell me anything?
No one actually said Scramblers did not have a decompressor, what the discussion was about, was how the cylinder was decompressed. Either the Desmo way of the relief valve on the combustion chamber, or by the valve spring way of opening the exhaust valve. There is only one exception to this and it is the TS450 which is a valve spring engine, but with a Desmo style decompressor....Hi guys.

A little, Peter. According to Motociclismo's restoration and maintenance guide for the Scrambler:Anyone else know anything further?
